The scoreboard operator will be busy Sunday night when the Indianapolis Colts and Arizona Cardinals square off on NBC.
It's a match-up of two high-powered offenses, so expect a shoot out, says NBC's Sunday Night Football experts.
"Peyton Manning is going to have to throw the ball a lot to try to outscore Kurt Warner and the Cardinals out there", said NBC commentator and former head coach of the Colts.
NBC's Rodney Harrison agrees, and says Manning will prove a great challenge for Arizona's secondary. "They're young, they're very athletic, led by Adrian Wilson", Harrison said. "So he'll have a lot of action back there deep with Reggie Wayne as well as in the run game".
NBC's Dan Patrick wonders if a high scoring game could bring up to 80 combined points and asked Dungy which team will bring the better defense.
"Both defenses are good, but I don't know that they can keep up with these offenses", Dungy said. "Warner played great this past week. Peyton Manning has got Reggie Wayne and Dallas Clark and a lot of weapons, so I just think the offenses are going to be a little ahead of the defenses".
Be ready to watch for yourself as the Colts square off with the Cards on NBC's "Football Night in America". It all begins Sunday night at 7 pm (ET/PT).
