Here's the Sunday Night Football Schedule for the 2023 NFL season

Old and new rivalries alike will head to NBC on Sunday Night Football throughout 2023

NBC Universal, Inc.

Sunday nights in the NFL were reserved for rivalries this season. 

The Sunday Night Football action started out in the NFC East when the Dallas Cowboys demolished the New York Giants in Week 1. In Week 2, the AFC East took center stage when the New England Patriots hosted the Miami Dolphins, though Tua Tagovailoa and Co. took an early lead and never gave it back to Mac Jones and Co.

Week 3 featured a rivalry decades out of its prime -- the Pittsburgh Steelers and Las Vegas Raiders -- and was followed by a Week 4 matchup that saw Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs narrowly beat the New York Jets.

The San Francisco 49ers, fresh off their second straight appearance in the NFC Championship Game, hosted the Cowboys in Week 5 and won 42-10.

The rest of the season continues with a series of matchups that don’t pack the same historical punch, but have the makings of a modern rivalry. 

In Week 6, Tyrod Taylor and the Giants went upstate to try to defeat the Buffalo Bills, but fell short 14-9 on the very last play.

Three weeks after in Week 9, the Bills headed to Cincinnati for the first time since Damar Hamlin suffered cardiac arrest at Paycor Stadium.

The last third of the season marked a return to traditional divisional rivalries starting with the Philadelphia Eagles and the Cowboys in Week 14, Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings in Week 17, and Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins in Week 18.

NBC's coverage continued into the playoffs with three wild card contests and a divisional round showdown.
