Tony Romo will be in your living rooms this Sunday, New England Patriots fans.
Don’t worry — the Dallas Cowboys quarterback-turned-broadcaster won’t be hogging your guacamole. Instead, Romo will be on CBS’ broadcast team for the Patriots’ Week 2 matchup against the New Orleans Saints, according to ESPN’s Mike Reiss.
Jim Nantz, Romo and Tracy Wolfson are CBS’ lead NFL broadcast trio, so it makes sense why they’d be assigned to arguably the most prominent AFC game in the 1 p.m. ET time slot: A matchup of superstar quarterbacks in Tom Brady and Drew Brees.
For Patriots and Saints fans, it means they get to see for themselves what all the Romo fuss is about. The 37-year-old was by many accounts a success in his NFL broadcasting debut last Sunday, conveying an extensive knowledge of the game and showing an uncanny ability to call out plays before they happened in the Week 1 matchup between the Tennessee Titans and Oakland Raiders.
Patriots vs. Saints should be another great fit for Romo, as the veteran of 14 NFL seasons can go inside the minds of two of the most successful QBs in league history. He can spare Brady any broadcasting tips, though.
