Social media went crazy Sunday night over Romo’s call of the game as he showed his ability to read plays before they happened. The former Dallas Cowboys quarterback’s work has been on display since he joined CBS in 2017 and was paired alongside lead play-by-play broadcaster Jim Nantz.

However, last night’s game grabbed the attention of viewers across the United States as the Patriots faced the Chiefs in the AFC Championship and the last game before the Super Bowl, not including the Pro Bowl.

Fans were in awe throughout the game as they listened to Romo analyze the game and correctly predict plays before the snap of the ball. Twitter was full of praise for the former quarterback.

Luckily for football fans, they will get to hear more from Romo before the season officially ends. He and Nantz will be calling Super Bowl LIII from Atlanta as the Patriots take on the Los Angeles Rams.

You can watch that game starting at 5:30 p.m. only on CBS 11 with pregame coverage running throughout the day.

“Have no idea who will win this Super Bowl, but I do know who the MVP will be… Tony Romo,” CBS 11 Sports anchor Bill Jones tweeted.
