NBC Sports' "Sunday Night Football" heads to New Orleans this weekend when the first-place Dallas Cowboys face off against the New Orleans Saints at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Coverage begins with "Football Night In America" at 7 p.m. ET on NBC.

This marks the third straight year the Cowboys-Saints matchup has been featured on "SNF." The first-place Cowboys aim for their 11th consecutive road victory on Sunday, while the Saints look to re-establish their home dominance.

Calling Cowboys-Saints are seven-time Emmy Award-winner Al Michaels (play-by-play), in his record 30th season as the voice of the NFL's premier primetime package; 16-time Emmy Award-winner Cris Collinsworth, who has won the Emmy for Outstanding Event Analyst in each of his six seasons in the "SNF" booth; and two-time Emmy Award-winning sideline reporter Michele Tafoya.

"Football Night In America," the most-watched studio show in sports, is hosted by 26-time Emmy Award-winner Bob Costas, who will report from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Costas will be joined on site by Collinsworth, Tafoya and two-time Super Bowl winner Hines Ward.

Dan Patrick co-hosts "Football Night" from NBC Sports Group's International Broadcast Center in Stamford, Connecticut, joined by Super Bowl-winning head coach Tony Dungy, two-time Super Bowl winner Rodney Harrison, Mike Florio of "Pro Football Talk" on NBCSN and NBCSports.com, and NFL insider Peter King. Kathryn Tappen will report from Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver on the Vikings-Broncos game.
