As is the case almost all of the time with NFC NFL games, when the Atlanta Falcons host the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, football fans across the country can catch the televised action on FOX.

And on the call for the NFC Championship Game will be the network’s No. 1 broadcast team — veteran play-by-play announcer Joe Buck and color analyst Troy Aikman.

Kickoff is set for 3:05 p.m. Eastern from the Georgia Dome.

Buck has been with FOX since 1994, serving in a number of capacities. He became the network’s lead play-by-play man in 2002, when he replaced Pat Summerall.

Aikman joined the FOX NFL team in 2001 and was elevated to the No. 1 crew with Buck and Cris Collinsworth the following season. Collinsworth left after the 2004 season and since then it’s been Buck and Aikman, who received an Emmy nomination for his work in ’04.

Buck and Aikman have called four Super Bowls — XXXIX, XLII, XLV and XLVIII — and will do so again for this year’s game in Houston (LI) on February 5 as FOX has the TV coverage.

On Super Bowl Sunday as well as this weekend in Atlanta, the sideline reporters are Erin Andrews, who joined the duo just before the 2014 season when she replaced Pam Oliver, and longtime FOX personality Chris Myers. Myers was added to the team for the playoffs.

The crew has worked both of the Packers’ 2017 postseason games so far — the 38-13 Wild-Card win over the Giants and last weekend’s 34-31 thrilling upset over No. 1 Dallas.
