Eleven NFL players will join Carrie Underwood for her performance of "Waiting All Day for Sunday Night," the opening theme for primetime television's No. 1 program, Sunday Night Football on NBC.
Underwood returns in 2014 beginning with NBC's first SNF broadcast of the 2014 NFL season as the Denver Broncos host the Indianapolis Colts. The opening theme will continue each week of the season to kick off Sunday Night Football, culminating with a special opening theme for NBC's broadcast of Super Bowl XLIX on February 1, 2015.
Eleven NFL players, who have accounted for 44 Pro Bowl selections, five Super Bowl rings, three Super Bowl MVP trophies and eight first-round draft picks (five in the top 10), will participate in the open; nine, denoted with an asterisk* below, took part in a shoot this past June.
