The New Orleans Saints and Buffalo Bills are set to square off Thanksgiving night at the Caesars Superdome. Who is on the call for this NFC-AFC showdown? 

As everyone around the country enjoys their Thanksgiving festivities, the New Orleans Saints have some business to attend to. They’re hosting the Buffalo Bills on what’s usually known as “Sunday Night Football” but with a holiday twist, as it’ll be on Thursday night.

Both teams are looking to rebound this week and for the Saints, a win would go a long way. This team was 5-2 after they shocked the world with an upset of the Buccaneers. Since then, they’ve dropped three straight games and look like a shell of themselves.

As for Buffalo, they entered the season as a Super Bowl contender, having made the AFC title game a season ago. While the Bills have looked really good at times, they’ve also looked pathetic in their fair share of games too. They’re coming off a blowout loss to the Colts and two weeks before that, fell to the Jaguars. The Jaguars!

This game looked like an interesting one ahead of the season but now it’s a matchup between two desperate teams. Who gets to be on the call for it?

Who is calling the Saints vs Bills matchup in Week 12?

It brings me great joy that Drew Brees will be in the broadcast booth for this game, which I believe is the first NFL game that he’ll be calling. He’s joined by Mike Tirico and Michelle Tafoya as part of the NBC crew.

Traditionally, Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth call the Sunday night games but due to the holidays, we get a different crew with Tafoya. Tirico tends to be one of the replacements and sometimes it’ll be Herm Edwards with him, but this year, with Brees joining NBC and teaming with Tirico for Notre Dame games, it makes sense that he’s on the call.

Not only will Brees get to make history by calling his first NFL game, but he’ll also be honored by the Saints. He never got a true send-off, as the Dome was mostly empty last year when he played in his final game, but now, he’ll get a true chance to wave goodbye to the crowd and soak it all in.
