STAMFORD, Conn. – April 22, 2014 – For the first time since acquiring the Sunday Night Football package in 2006, NBC will televise an NFL Divisional Playoff game this upcoming season and each season thereafter through 2022, per NBC Sports Group’s nine-year extension with the NFL which begins this season.

 

NBC will broadcast three 2014 postseason games – Super Bowl XLIX from Arizona on Sunday, February 1, 2015, a Divisional Playoff game on the weekend of January 10-11, and a Wild Card Playoff game on the January 3-4 weekend.

 

NBC’s Sunday Night Football averaged 21.7 million viewers in 2013 putting it on pace to rank as the No. 1 show for the entire primetime television season (September-May, based on Nielsen live plus same day data) for the third consecutive year.
