BOSTON (CBS) — Among the biggest surprises for football fans in Week 1 was the outstanding color commentary provided by Tony Romo in the Raiders-Titans game.

This week, Patriots fans will get a firsthand experience of the Romo phenomenon, as he’s been assigned to the Patriots-Saints game in New Orleans.

Paired with lead play-by-play man Jim Nantz, Romo provided viewers a glimpse into what a quarterback sees at the line of scrimmage and the adjustments that are made before the snap.

Romo announced his retirement in April, after a back injury sidelined him in the 2016 preseason and opened the door for rookie quarterback Dak Prescott to take over the Cowboys’ QB job. Romo’s job with CBS was known at the time of his retirement, and given his lack of experience, many football fans had questions about his abilities.

But he put forth an impressive performance in Week 1, and he figures to have an even larger audience for Week 2.

  1. I really appreciate the game more now then ever when Tony calls the game. You can hear the passion, love and respect for football. Sometimes he gets so excited it rubs off on me! I’m not a cowboy fan,but I am a big Romo. Keep up the excellent work.
