STAMFORD, Conn. - Nov. 25, 2020 - With today's postponement of the Baltimore Ravens-Pittsburgh Steelers Thanksgiving night game, NBC Sports will present two national NFL telecasts this Sunday, November 29.

"With the health and safety of all involved as our key concerns, we have worked closely with our partners at the NFL to accommodate this schedule change," said NBC Sports Chairman Pete Bevacqua.

On Sunday at 1 p.m. ET (kickoff at 1:15 p.m. ET), the NFL's only undefeated team, the Pittsburgh Steelers (10-0), host their AFC North division rival Baltimore Ravens (6-4) at Heinz Field. Al Michaels will call the game alongside Cris Collinsworth. Michele Tafoya is the sideline reporter.

In primetime, the first-place Green Bay Packers (7-3) host the Chicago Bears (5-5) at Lambeau Field in an NFC North rivalry that is the most-played matchup in NFL history. This week's NBC Sunday Night Football game marks the 201st meeting between the clubs. Mike Tirico will call the game alongside Pro Football Hall of Fame head coach Tony Dungy. Kathryn Tappen is the sideline reporter.

Terry McAulay will provide rules analysis for both games from NBC Sports' studio headquarters in Stamford, Conn.
