The following is a detailed list of results and scores from National Football League games aired on NBC under the game package NBC Sunday Night Football. The list includes both regular season and post-season game results, both produced by NBC Sports, from the 2006 NFL season to the present.

The NFL instated a new "flex-scheduling" policy in which the NFL could choose a game to be aired in primetime on NBC based on the team's current performance and record. Previously, ESPN broadcast Sunday night NFL games from 1987-2005.

Starting with the 2006 NFL season, NBC was awarded the rights to air Sunday night primetime American football games, as well as the rights to air two Wild Card playoff games from the first round of the NFL playoffs. In February 2009, NBC will conclude their third season of the game package by broadcasting Super Bowl XLIII and the 2009 Pro Bowl from Honolulu, Hawai'i. The game package also includes broadcast rights to the NFL Kickoff game and Pro Football Hall of Fame Game.

2006

NBC Sunday Night Football wrapped up its inaugural season [in 2006] averaging 17.5 million viewers, 1.2 million viewers better than ABC Monday Night Football in 2005 and the best viewership number for the network primetime NFL package in six years (18.5 million on ABC in 2000).[1] The season featured pop singer Pink singing the anthem for SNF called "I've Been Waiting All Day For Sunday Night."

In the 2006 season, there was no game played on the first Sunday night which overlapped with the World Series (October 22 in the 2006 season), along with Christmas Eve night; NBC broadcast that week's game (Eagles at Cowboys) on Christmas afternoon instead. However, the broadcast of Football Night in America continued at its regular time on both occasions each Sunday, with a half-hour version of the program airing before the Christmas game and the two "Wild Card Saturday" games.

2007

In 2007, there was no game broadcast on NBC for Sunday, October 28 due to Game 4 of the 2007 World Series, although Football Night in America aired at its usual time that week. Also, a tentative full-season schedule was unveiled, including games in the last seven weeks of the season. Those games could be replaced under flexible scheduling if the need arose. Three of the games in the last seven weeks were eventually replaced with more compelling matches. This resulted in the unprecedented situation--twice--of having a team playing consecutive Sunday nights. New England had consecutive Sunday nighters: the November 18 New England at Buffalo game was moved to prime time and was followed on November 25 by the already-scheduled Philadelphia at New England game. Likewise, the Washington Redskins played a scheduled game at the New York Giants on December 16, and their December 23 game in Minnesota was moved to prime time. The same rules under which CBS and FOX protect games for their own packages still apply.

2008

NBC Sunday Night Football's 2008 schedule began on Thursday, September 4 with the defending-Super Bowl champion New York Giants defeating the Washington Redskins in the NFL Kickoff game. On Sunday, September 7, the Indianapolis Colts hosted the Chicago Bears in the first game at Lucas Oil Stadium. 2008 marked the third consecutive year that both the Colts and Giants would be featured in the NBC Sunday Night Football opening week games. As a result, the Manning brothers were used in commercial advertisements.

The 2008 schedule, released April 15, continued the current practice of a scheduled game possibly being moved in favor of a more compelling one during Weeks 11 through 16 (November 16 through December 21), but left the slot open on the final Sunday, December 28. The NFL Kickoff Game between the Washington Redskins and defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants that was played on September 4 started at 7:00 p.m. instead of the normal 8:30 p.m. time in order to avoid conflict with the nomination speech that John McCain gave at the Republican National Convention that night; the game ended at 10:01pm EDT, averting any conflict. As in previous years, one Sunday night (October 26) featured no game broadcast due to Game 4 of the World Series, although Football Night in America aired as usual that week.

The October 19 Seahawks-Buccaneers game featured Cris Collinsworth substituting for John Madden as the color commentator, the first time Madden had missed calling a game in 28 years. He had taken the week off because he would have had to make three straight cross country trips after calling games in Jacksonville and San Diego. (He travels by bus because of a fear of flying.)[2] The Patriots-Seahawks game on December 7 was dropped in favor of a Redskins-Ravens flex schedule game. The Chargers-Buccaneers game on December 21 was dropped in favor of a Panthers-Giants game to determine home-field advantage in the NFC playoffs. The Week 17 game was purposely not chosen when the schedule was initially released, and the Broncos-Chargers game was picked up for it to determine the winner of the AFC West division.

On wildcard weekend, the Atlanta Falcons and Arizona Cardinals both made their debuts on SNF in the 4:30 EDT game on January 3. The Chargers hosted the Colts in the primetime game later that evening.
