NBC UNIVERSO, the modern sports and entertainment cable channel for Latinos, today announced that it will air live theÂ NFL Sunday Night Football featuring the Denver Broncos vs. Detroit Lions on Sun., Sept. 27 at 8:00p ET / 5:00p PT. NBC UNIVERSO is the home of the exclusive Spanish telecast of NFL Sunday Night Football this season.The announcers for the contest between the Broncos (2-0) and Lions (0-2) will be veteran sports anchors Rene Giraldo and Edgar Lopez, as well as sideline reporter VerÃ³nica Contreas.
Broncoâ€™s quarterback Peyton Manning, who has thrown more touchdowns and reached more Pro Bowls than any other quarterback in NFL history, has started the 2015 season a little rocky. In the last two games, opponents have sacked Manning seven times; and the offense is averaging only 2.7 yards per carry, which is second worst in the NFL.
As for Detroit, the team knows that a win against Denver could really make a positive impact on the rest of its season, despite it entering only into week three. Seven teams in the NFL have yet to win a game so far this year. Historically, teams that begin the season 0-2, such as Detroit, have a really difficult time reaching the playoffs. However, the good news for the Lions is that they have history coming back from a poor start to make the playoffs.
Denver and Detroit have played each other 11 times previously, with the Lions winning five games and the Broncos winning six.
To catch all the on-field action of the game live on NBC UNIVERSO, fans can check their local TV listings, or visitÂ www.nbcuniverso.com/
