We still have a couple of weeks to go before we see and hear their rendition of “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night,” a riff off of Joan’s “I Hate Myself for Loving You,” but Carrie is, obviously, as excited for us to see it as we are, so she offered up a tiny peek of the finished product on her Instagram page. “Tune in September 8th! @JoanJett @SNFonNBC” she writes.

From the few seconds of footage, we can see that they have given the promo piece a face lift and include shots of Joan, as well as Carrie and her band, interspersed with NFL greats, and the energy is as amped up as previous incarnations of the song.
