NBC Sports continues its presentation of "Sunday Night Football" this week with an NFC West divisional showdown, when Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks take on Larry Fitzgerald and the Arizona Cardinals at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale.

The 4-1 Seahawks head to Arizona coming off three straight wins, and lead the league in total defense with 283.6 yards per game. Wilson recorded his 50th career regular-season victory with last week's 26-24 win over Atlanta. The Cardinals, last season's NFC West champions, come off a 28-3 win over the Jets, as RB David Johnson rushed for 111 yards and three touchdowns. Johnson leads the league in rushing TDs with eight this season, while Fitzgerald leads active players in career receptions (1,055) and yards (13,776), with 103 career touchdown catches.

Calling Seahawks-Cardinals 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 will report on-site from University of Phoenix 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 NBC Sports' "ProFootballTalk." Kathryn Tappen will report from Pittsburgh on the Patriots-Steelers game.
