On Sunday night in San Francisco, NBC will be televising a preseason game between the Vikings and the 49ers. It’s unknown whether quarterback Brett Favre will play.
It is known that halftime of the Vikings-Niners game will feature Bob Costas interviewing Redskins coach Mike Shanahan.
Shanahan returns to the NFL in 2010 after being unexpectedly fired by the Broncos after the 2008 season. Shanahan’s Redskins host the Cowboys on the first official Sunday night game, on September 12.
Also, 49ers coach Mike Singletary will wear a microphone during the game, and Tony Dungy and Rodney Harrison of Football Night in America will visit with Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth in the booth during the second half of the game.
