The Whole Internet Shared The Same Reaction To Cris Collinsworth’s Absence From Sunday Night Football

The Patriots vs. Broncos “Sunday Night Football” matchup won’t feature the usual crew tonight.

Veteran sports broadcaster Cris Collinsworth won’t be in the commentator’s seat for this game. NBC made an intriguing move by assigning their regular Sunday Night Football duo, Mike Tirico and Cris Collinsworth, to cover the game between the Bills and Chargers on Saturday, a historic occasion as it marked Peacock’s exclusive coverage of an NFL game.

As a result of this scheduling change, Collinsworth will be absent tonight, and it seems that his absence hasn’t gone unnoticed by fans.

Collinsworth has been a familiar face on Sunday night NFL broadcasts since the late 2000s, and this season marked his remarkable 15th year with the NBC program. This impressive tenure set a record for the most seasons served by an analyst on the NFL’s broadcast primetime package, as confirmed in his NBC biography.

Outside of the football commentary world, Collinsworth is known for dedicating quality time to his family.
