Sudbury’s Chris Evans will narrate “America’s Game,” the NFL Network’s story about the Patriots’ 2014 Super Bowl win.

Actor Chris Evans of Sudbury will narrate “America’s Game,” the NFL Network’s story about the Patriots’ 2014 Super Bowl win, he said in a tweet Tuesday night. The show will air Sept. 8 at 10 p.m.

In the trailer for the show, Julian Edelman, Rob Gronkowski, and Devin McCourty all comment on the season as scenes from the Super Bowl play. A highlight is when Malcolm Butler’s game-winning interception is spliced together with Tom Brady emitting a high-pitched scream and jumping up and down. Evans’s voiceover does not appear.

“No matter what happens in the rest of your football career,” said McCourty, “you can say, ‘I was a Super Bowl champion, I felt the confetti fall on me.’”

Evans, best known for his role as Captain America in the “Avengers” movies, is somewhat of a Patriots superfan. He made a 2014 Super Bowl bet with Seattle fan Chris Pratt. When Pratt (and Seattle) lost, Pratt had to dress as his character from “Guardians of the Galaxy” — but sporting a Tom Brady jersey — and visit children at a Boston charity. Evans also appeared in Jimmy Kimmel’s “Locker Room Guy” video with other Boston-area celebrities, such as Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, mocking Deflategate.
