NBC Sports continues its presentation of "Sunday Night Football" this week as the Dallas Cowboys and rookie QB Dak Prescott host Alshon Jeffery and the Chicago Bears at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Coverage begins with "Football Night in America" at 7 p.m. ET.

The Cowboys come off a 27-23 road victory against Washington, with Prescott passing for 292 yards and a touchdown in his first career NFL road game. Cowboys WR Dez Bryant caught seven passes for 102 yards in the win on Sunday. The Bears look to rebound following a loss to the Eagles on Monday night. Jeffery has nine catches for 201 yards this season and is one of only two players in the NFL to have at least 200 receiving yards.

Calling Bears-Cowboys are seven-time Emmy Award-winner Al Michaels (play-by-play), in his record 31st season as the voice of the NFL's premier primetime package; 16-time Emmy Award-winner Cris Collinsworth; and two-time Emmy Award-winning sideline reporter Michele Tafoya.

"Football Night in America" is hosted by Mike Tirico, who reports on-site from AT&T Stadium, and Dan Patrick, who will host from NBC Sports Group's International Broadcast Center in Stamford, Connecticut. Patrick is joined by Hall of Fame head coach Tony Dungy, two-time Super Bowl champion Rodney Harrison, and Mike Florio of "Pro Football Talk" on NBCSN, NBCSports.com and NBC Sports Radio.

Paul Burmeister will report from Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia on the Steelers-Eagles game.
