NBC has a new opening for its Thursday Night Football package and the Dallas Cowboys will be part of their schedule of games.

Grammy Award-winning recording artist Pentatonix, an a cappella group from Arlington, will sing and perform “Weekend Go,” the new opening theme. “Weekend Go” is inspired by their original hit “Sing,” which has amassed nearly 17 million views on YouTube. “Sing” is from Pentatonix’ self-titled certified gold album that debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 last fall.

The show open celebrates the start of the NFL weekend, with game highlights and player cameos. It kicks off the nine NBC-produced TNF games, beginning Thursday, November 3, when the Atlanta Falcons visit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on NFL Network.

The Cowboys will be part of the game lineup when they visit the Minnesota Vikings on Dec. 1.
