NBC Sports continues its presentation of "Sunday Night Football" this week as Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers host Eli Manning and the New York Giants at historic Lambeau Field in Green Bay. Coverage begins with "Football Night in America" at 7 p.m. ET.

The Packers (2-1) are coming off a bye week, and last defeated Detroit 34-27 in Week 3, as Rodgers threw four touchdown passes. Rodgers has 143 touchdown passes, 26 interceptions and a 110.2 passer rating at Lambeau Field, the highest home passer rating in NFL history.

The Giants (2-2) return to Lambeau Field for the first time since January 2012 when they defeated the Packers in the Divisional Playoffs, 37-20. Four weeks later, the Giants won Super Bowl XLVI. Manning threw for 330 yards in that game. The Giants have won the past two regular-season matchups against the Packers.

Calling Giants-Packers 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," the most-watched weekly studio show in sports, is hosted by Mike Tirico, who reports on-site from Lambeau Field, 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 AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, on the Bengals-Cowboys game.
