The first "Sunday Night Football" game of the season will kick off 7:20 tonight and feature the Dallas Cowboys vs. Los Angeles Rams. As a pregame warm-up, "Football Night in America" will air at 6 p.m. on NBC.
"Sunday Night Football" has been primetime television’s No. 1 program for an unprecedented nine consecutive years.
