Lions Vs. Saints, NFL Playoffs 2012: Cris Collinsworth and Al Michaels To Call Late Game on NBC

The Detroit Lions will take on the New Orleans Saints in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans on Saturday Night in the prime time game of the day. Both of the Wild Card matchups on Saturday are on NBC, but the Lions and the Saints will get the "A-team" for NBC, with Cris Collinsworth and Al Michaels with Michele Tafoya on the sidelines giving updates.

Collinsworth, Michaels, and Tafoya are the standard NBC Sunday Night football crew, so it's only natural that they would handle the evening game. The game will kickoff at 8:00 p.m. ET in New Orleans and will be aired nationally on NBC. The game will also be live streamed on-line at NBC.com.
