NBC broadcaster Cris Collinsworth found himself trending for the wrong reasons on social media Sunday night.

While calling the Dallas Cowboys vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers game, fans chimed in wondering if Collinsworth was sick due to the sound of his voice during the broadcast.

A repeated call for cough drops was a popular request on Twitter. Even his fellow commentator Mike Tirico got a playful jab in at his expense.

“You feel fine, it’s just ... two games, three days, red-eyes, a bunch of travel ... my man’s playing hurt!” Tirico said.

Some commended his effort for battling through an apparent illness to call the game.
