STAMFORD, Conn. – Sept. 6, 2022 – Beginning with the first Sunday of the NFL season this weekend (Sept. 11), Peacock will exclusively bookend NFL coverage every Sunday with the debut of Fantasy Football Pregame with Matthew Berry at 11 a.m. ET and the return of its exclusive postgame show, Peacock Sunday Night Football Final.
Fantasy Football Pregame, featuring co-hosts Matthew Berry and Michael Smith, will stream live exclusively on Peacock from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. ET each Sunday throughout the NFL season, providing the latest fantasy football news and advice to help viewers set their lineup before the early games kickoff just after 1 p.m. ET.
The show will also feature Jay Croucher, who co-hosts the daily “Fantasy Football Happy Hour with Matthew Berry” program on Peacock (Monday-Friday, Noon ET) and will provide sports betting advice. Additionally, Rotoworld analysts Patrick ‘RotoPat’ Daugherty, Denny Carter, and more will join the show as regular guests. Berry, the celebrated fantasy football commentator and industry pioneer, made his NBC Sports debut earlier this month on a special Football Night in America ahead of the 2022 Hall of Fame Game on NBC and Peacock. Smith is also the co-host of Peacock original Brother from Another.
This season also marks the return of Peacock’s exclusive postgame show, Peacock Sunday Night Football Final, following each Sunday Night Football game. Peacock Sunday Night Football Final, which debuted last season, provides instant reactions to each Sunday game along with highlights and interviews. Returning as co-hosts are NBC Sports’ Kathryn Tappen and Chris Simms.
Football Night in America commentators Jac Collinsworth and Rodney Harrison will also provide recaps and insights into the day’s biggest moments from the site of each week’s SNF game, and Mike Florio will provide injury and news updates. Berry will also join the show to provide advice and an early look at the fantasy waiver wire. Smith will offer his NFL ‘take of the day.’
