NBCSN's "Pro Football Talk" will hit the road during Super Bowl week, as a comprehensive cast of "Football Night in America" and "Sunday Night Football" commentators join "PFT" to provide insight and analysis on-site in Phoenix throughout the week leading up to Super Bowl XLIX, which airs on NBC Sunday, Feb. 1.

"Pro Football Talk," which will air Monday through Friday (Jan. 26-30) at 5:30 p.m. ET during Super Bowl week, is co-hosted by Mike Florio and Paul Burmeister. They will be joined by "PFT" contributors Jason Taylor, Kevin Gilbride and Ross Tucker on-site at "Super Bowl Central," NBC Sports Group's primary home for studio programing during Super Bowl week, located in downtown Phoenix.

"Football Night in America" analysts Tony Dungy, Rodney Harrison and Hines Ward, "Sunday Night Football" color commentator Cris Collinsworth, and NBC Notre Dame football analyst Doug Flutie will appear on "PFT" throughout the week, beginning Monday, Jan. 26.

In addition to "PFT," "FNIA" and "SNF" commentators, "PFT" will feature interviews with current and former players and coaches. "Super Bowl Central" also will feature a football field set that "PFT" contributors will utilize to demonstrate key schemes and gameplans during the week. The program will have a presence at the NFL Experience, the league's interactive theme park, and on "Radio Row," where "PFT" talent will conduct live interviews and reports.

NBC Sports Group's Carolyn Manno and Kathryn Tappen will serve as team reporters, providing news and information from the AFC and NFC team headquarters in Arizona.

NBC will broadcast Super Bowl XLIX from University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale Sunday, Feb. 1. Pre-game coverage begins at noon on NBC with interviews, in-depth features and a preview of this year's matchup, leading up to kickoff.
