Best Answer

NBC, which airs Sunday night football contests during the NFL regular season, traditionally televises back-to-back games on "Wild Card Saturday." Meanwhile, CBS, the network of the American Football Conference, and FOX, the network of the National Football Conference, handle all other postseason contests through the league Championship Games.

The Super Bowl rotates among the three networks. FOX will televise Super Bowl XLV at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas on February 6, 2011. NBC will televise Super Bowl XLVI at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis on February 5, 2012. CBS has the rights to Super Bowl XLVII, tentatively scheduled for

February 3, 2013 at the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans.

ESPN, which airs Monday night football games, and the NFL Network, which airs Thursday and Saturday contests near the end of the season, are not presently in the mix for Super Bowl telecasts.

Coverage of the Super Bowl rotates among three of the networks that televise National Football League games -- FOX (which airs National Football Conference contests), CBS (American Football Conference contests) and NBC (Sunday Night Football). According to the latest NFL's broadcast agreement with the networks, each will televise three Super Bowls between 2014 and 2022.
