Telemundo to air NFL game

Dolphins-Jets game on Sept. 26 to reach specific cities

The NFL, Telemundo and NBC Sports have teamed up to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with a special presentation of the "Sunday Night Football" Miami Dolphins-New York Jets game on Sept. 26 at 8 p.m. ET.

Telemundo will broadcast its first ever "Sunday Night Football" game on its New York, Los Angeles and Miami Telemundo stations with its own Spanish-speaking commentators, Jessi Losada, Rene Girardo and Edgar Lopez. Latin superstar and Dolphins' limited partner Marc Anthony will perform the national anthem.

NFL players will also participate in local community outreach and recognize their Hispanic fans, players, coaches, and local communities.

NBC Sports and the NFL are attempting to reach the league's fast-growing Hispanic audience. The 2009 NFL regular season averaged 1.1 million Hispanic viewers per game, more than any other U.S. sport.
