How Did Boomer and TJ Pick Right Up Where They Left Off? Go Behind The Scenes of ESPN+’s NFL PrimeTime

In September, Chris Berman and Tom Jackson resumed their distinctive Prime Time take on Sunday's NFL games, an ESPN staple from 1987-2005. Here's how the show all comes together.

NFL PrimeTime on ESPN with Chris Berman and Tom Jackson was a must-watch show for football fans from 1987-2005. For 19 years, ESPN’s legendary duo recapped every Sunday afternoon NFL game with expanded highlights and in-depth analysis in a fun and fast-paced 60-minute program.

In September 2019, Berman and Jackson came “back, back, back” together, reuniting for a new version of ESPN+ NFL PrimeTime that now gives a new generation of fans the opportunity to experience the show for the first time – either live on Sunday nights or available on-demand through Wednesday each week.

Berman and Jackson will immediately recap this weekend’s NFL Conference Championship games and look ahead to the Super Bowl LIV matchup on Sunday night (10 p.m. ET, ESPN).

HERE’S A CLOSER LOOK AT HOW NFL PRIMETIME ALL COMES TOGETHER.
