Tony Romo on Patrick Mahomes’ MVP candidacy: You don’t luck your way into that
CBS Sports announcer Jim Nantz told ESPN Cleveland last week that his network was finalizing the broadcasting assignments for the start of the 2019 NFL season.
Nantz thought he and Tony Romo would work either the Chiefs’ opener at Jacksonville or the Titans-Browns game in Cleveland.
CBS picked the Titans-Browns game.
The Chiefs-Jaguars game will be called by Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts with sideline reporter Evan Washburn.
Nantz and Romo will be in Oakland the following week for the Chiefs-Raiders game. Tracy Wolfson will work as sideline reporter.
CBS Sports announced Gene Steratore is back as NFL rules analyst. James Brown will continue as host of “The NFL Today” with Boomer Esiason, Bill Cowher, Phil Simms and Nate Burleson. Jason La Canfora will return as the network’s “NFL Insider.”
