Michaels’ contract with NBC is up after this game which means he’ll be a free agent in the broadcasting field.

If Michaels isn’t back with NBC for next season, Mike Tirico would likely take over for him. The network hired Tirico in 2016 and he has called some games when Michaels has been out.

Before Tirico was with NBC, he was with ESPN and was the lead play-by-play announcer for Monday Night Football.
