Fox Sports officially revealed its No. 1 NFL crew for the upcoming football season on Tuesday.

Kevin Burkhardt will handle play-by-play duties along with analyst Greg Olsen.
Olsen and Burkhardt were the network’s No. 2 team last season and were elevated when Joe Buck and Troy Aikman left to broadcast “Monday Night Football” on ESPN.
Longtime sideline reporter Erin Andrews returns along with Tom Rinaldi and rules analyst Mike Pereira to complete the crew.
The announcement comes at a critical time for Fox as the network will broadcast two of the next three Super Bowls, including Super Bowl 57 set for Feb. 12 at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. The network also has Super Bowl 59, scheduled for Feb. 9, 2025 at the Caesars Superdome in New Orleans.

MNF: Joe Buck, Troy Aikman ready for new challenge on ESPN.
POST CAREER: Tom Brady to join Fox Sports as lead NFL analyst when playing career ends.
It’s not clear how long this new crew will stay together, as Fox announced earlier this month that seven-time world champion Tom Brady will join the network as its lead NFL analyst whenever he decides to retire.
Brady announced his retirement on Feb. 1, only to change his mind and return for a 23rd season.
Brady will reportedly be paid $375 million over 10 years for his broadcasting services.
