After 35 years ESPN will televise an NFL playoff game.

The sports network announced today that it will air a wild-card playoff game beginning this season.

According to ESPN.com the NFL has an option to air a wild-card game on ESPN as part of the eight year deal the network reached with the league in 2011.

“We’re thrilled to televise our first wild-card playoff game and we thank the NFL for the opportunity,” ESPN President John Skipper said in a statement. “This game will be among the highest-rated  programs of the year on cable and it is compelling content that will help us better serve football fans during the postseason.”

ESPN will also broadcast the 2015 Pro Bowl from University of Phoenix Stadium as part of the network’s rights agreement.

ESPN is announcing that both the wild-card game and the Pro Bowl will be called by the broadcast team of Mike Tirico, Jon Gruden and sideline reporter Lisa Salters.
