NBC has officially released its Sunday Night Football schedule for the 2013 NFL season. One of the most critically acclaimed sports broadcasts in the country, SNF tends to get the most prestigious matchups of the week, and this year promises to be no different.

Divisional matchups headline the early stages of SNF this season. Eli Manning faces Tony Romo to start, and Russell Wilson will take on Colin Kaepernick in Week 2. The Broncos hit the road to take on the Colts in Week 7, with Peyton Manning finally be playing in Indianapolis on the opposing side.

An AFC Championship rematch will come in Week 16 between the Patriots and Ravens. Bill Belichick will also see his former wide receiver in prime time, as New England hosts Denver and Wes Welker in Week 12.

The Giants, Cowboys and Patriots all appear in three Sunday night games. Here's the complete schedule, week-by-week:
