If “Thursday Night Football” is the appetizer, “Sunday Night Football” is the dessert following a bountiful day of football action. After initially starting on ESPN in the late ’80s, NBC has been the host of “Sunday Night Football” since 2006.
One of the main “Sunday Night Football” matchups for this season was announced on Thursday morning. In a rematch of Super Bowl LV, Tom Brady and the Buccaneers will host Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 4. While Mahomes was relentlessly harassed by Tampa Bay’s defense in Super Bowl LV, Brady threw three touchdown passes en route to winning a record fifth Super Bowl MVP award.
