Here’s all the information you’ll need to catch the broadcast of Sunday afternoon’s game between the Chiefs and Cowboys.
The sight of Tony Romo should make Kansas City Chiefs fans say, “Oh, no!”
The first two times Romo has called games, the Chiefs have lost—their only losses, in fact. Kansas City has withered in primetime on CBS broadcasts yet prospered in other primetime formats like Monday Night Football or Sunday Night Football. Here’s hoping they can right the ship on another Romo-led broadcast against the Dallas Cowboys.
It’s silly, of course, to blame a broadcaster for the Chiefs woes. The proper culprit would be the team’s inability to keep their opponents out of the end zone in recent weeks. Last week, they were gifted a win at home against the Broncos as Trevor Siemian decided to throw several passes directly at Chiefs players, and Vance Joseph abandoned a running game late despite averaging 5.7 yards/rush.
Prior to last week, the Pittsburgh Steelers and Oakland Raiders both toppled the previously undefeated Chiefs, souring fans at the midway point after riding high as the NFL’s top team through much of the season’s first half. Fortunately they’re still very much in the mix among Super Bowl contenders despite the recent skid. A win against Dallas as they slide into the bye next would go a long way toward making a strong second half run.
That said, Dallas has much more to play for here as they are in a tight NFC East race in which every win counts. The Chiefs have already defeated the Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Redskins, so Dallas knows that a win could help positioning in the NFC East. Plus they can ill afford to fall further behind the Eagles in the division, who are already 2.5 games ahead of the Cowboys, who are 4-3. A win gives the Cowboys a very respectable 5-3 record in their first half season.
Back to Romo for a second. It should be interesting to hear his insights after playing so many years in Dallas. In what should be a tough game between two of the NFL’s better teams, Romo’s analysis could make an already solid broadcast that much more enjoyable—if the Chiefs win, of course.
