Former President George W. Bush will open this Sunday's "NFL Sunday" on Fox via a taped two-minute piece. Sunday is the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks and the audience for this broadcast -- Fox's first NFL telecast of the season -- should number in the many dozens of millions.

There aren't many details, but the Hollywood Reporter says members of the FDNY, the NYPD, and the Port Authority police will also be included; in addition, Robert De Niro will do a voice-over for a tribute from Shanksville, Pa., too.

Times are expected to be noon and 12:57 respectively.
