Telemundo announced Tuesday that it has extended its six-year partnership with the National Football League through the 2013 season.

Along with NBC Sports, Telemundo will offer season-long, Spanish-language coverage of the NFL, which includes three simulcasts of NBC's Sunday Night Football. Sept. 25 will be the first broadcast, featuring the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Indianapolis Colts; the network will also air an NFL Hispanic Heritage special prior to the game for Hispanic Heritage Month. The other two games will be Dec. 11 (New York Giants-Dallas Cowboys) and Dec. 18 (Baltimore Ravens-San Diego Chargers).

Jessi Losada will serve as the host for the simulcasts, with René Giraldo and Edgar López will call the play-by-play.

"Telemundo's continued partnership with the NFL is one that our viewers and advertisers expect and have embraced. Deportes Telemundo is committed to lead and innovate in our industry and this expanded relationship with the NFL and NBC Sports is another example of that commitment," said Jorge Hidalgo, senior EVP of Telemundo Sports.

Along with the games, the new agreement will bring three live specials to the network: 2011 NFL Kickoff Presented by Verizon on Sept. 10 at 5 p.m., an NFL Playoff special on Jan. 7 and a one-hour Super Bowl special on Feb. 4.
