Although Darren and Rocky are on-site for the earlier game, it won't be Nat and Greg commentating on the later fixture. They'll be presenting with commentary coming from a US broadcast.

In which case, it will be Howard David and Tony Boselli of Westwood One (which I accidentally omotted from my US list).

Indeed it was, meaning the full 5LSE details were:

Sunday 18th December - BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra

NFL on 5 Live with Darren Fletcher from Arrowhead Stadium, followed by Nat Coombs (in London) and Greg Brady (in Toronto, Ontario) presenting from 9.05pm

American Football: NFL Week 15
Green Bay Packers @ Kansas City Chiefs - Darren Fletcher and Rocky Boiman (6pm GMT commentary)
New England Patriots @ Denver Broncos - Howard David and Tony Boselli, with Scott Graham in the studio (9.15pm GMT commentary provided by Westwood One)

The early game finished just after 9pm meaning coverage of the two live matches dovetailed nicely with no clash. 5LSE will be doing an NFL commentary on Saturday (Christmas Eve), the New York Giants @ New York Jets, from 6pm our time with Greg Brady among the presenting team.

New Year's Day - BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra

NFL on 5 Live with Greg Brady and Danielle Michaud (in Toronto, Ontario)

American Football: NFL Week 17
Kansas City Chiefs @ Denver Broncos - Kevin Kugler and Mark Malone, with Scott Graham in the studio (9.15pm GMT commentary provided by Westwood One)
Baltimore Ravens @ Cincinnati Bengals - Rich Cellini and John Robinson, with Troy West at pitchside (commentary on the conclusion provided by Sports USA Radio)

5LSE took commentary on the final 11 seconds of the Ravens @ Bengals match but didn't stick around to carry news of the San Diego Chargers @ Oakland Raiders finish, a game key to the Broncos' playoff hopes. It was mentioned at the end of the broadcast that 5LSE will be doing a double header of games from the Wild Card round of the playoffs next Sunday beginning at 6pm.

Think they are doing the Saturday games as well from 9:30pm.

From Charles Sale's Sports Agenda column in today's Daily Mail:

Allen joins 5 Live's F1 coverage

The motor racing commentators merry-go-round sees James Allen, who lost his position behind the microphone when F1 switched from ITV to BBC in 2009, replacing Sky-bound David Croft as grand prix racecaller for Radio 5 Live.

Former BBC commentator Jonathan Legard will be the stand-in.

Sunday 8th January - BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra

NFL on 5 Live with Tony Husband (from London, UK not Ontario) and Greg Brady (in Toronto, Ontario)

American Football: NFL Wild Card Playoffs
Atlanta Falcons @ New York Giants - Ian Eagle and Trent Green, with Laura Okmin at pitchside (6pm GMT commentary provided by Westwood One)
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Denver Broncos - Kevin Harlan and Dan Fouts, with Steve Tasker at pitchside (9.30pm GMT commentary provided by Westwood One)

To clarify a detail from above, 5LSE didn't carry commentary on either of Saturday night's Wild Card Playoffs. Both had been erroneously listed on the 5LSE website's schedule page but NFL on 5 Live producer Phil Spooner confirmed on the show's Facebook page that "the online schedule is wrong and I'm trying to get it sorted".

For the record, here's what Westwood One did on Saturday:

Cincinnati Bengals @ Houston Texans - Howard David and Tony Boselli, with Mark Malone at pitchside (9.30pm GMT commentary)
Detroit Lions @ New Orleans Saints - Dave Sims and James Lofton, with Hub Arkush at pitchside (1am GMT commentary)
