Peacock to Stream Every Sunday Night Football Game & Football Night in America Studio Show in 2024 Season Plus Peacock Sunday Night Football Final Returns


May 16, 2024

NBC Sunday Night Football, America’s No. 1 primetime television show for an unprecedented 13 consecutive years, is the home to the best and the brightest in 2024, opening the season with Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs raising their Super Bowl banner before hosting Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens in NFL Kickoff 2024. The game is a rematch of last season’s AFC Championship Game and marks the first time that quarterbacks who have won multiple MVP awards meet in Week 1. The opener is the first of four ’24 appearances by Mahomes and the Chiefs on NBC and Peacock.

The next night (Sept. 6), Peacock is the exclusive national home as Jordan Love and the Green Bay Packers face Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles in São Paulo, marking the NFL’s first-ever game in Brazil and the league’s first opening weekend Friday game since 1970. On Sept. 8 on NBC and Peacock, in another opening weekend NFL Playoff rematch, Matthew Stafford and the Los Angeles Rams visit Jared Goff and the Detroit Lions in the season debut of Sunday Night Football.

Aaron Rodgers makes his first appearances on Sunday Night Football with the New York Jets, as they visit the Pittsburgh Steelers (Oct. 20) and host the Indianapolis Colts (Nov. 17).

Peacock will once again stream all NBC Sunday Night Football games, including the playoffs, and the Football Night in America studio show. The exclusive Peacock Sunday Night Football Final returns with expanded postgame coverage following SNF each week.
