CBS announced that Jim Nantz and Tony Romo will call the Bengals' AFC Championship Game against the Chiefs in Kansas City next Sunday, with Tracy Wolfson and Evan Washburn as sideline reporters, Jay Feely as kicking analyst and Gene Steratore as rules analyst.

CBS and Paramount Plus will broadcast the Bengals-Chiefs game, with kickoff set for Sunday at 3:05 p.m. Eastern.

Nantz did play-by-play and Romo was a color analyst for the Chiefs' overtime win against the Bills - won on a touchdown catch by former Cincinnati Bearcats standout Travis Kelce - on Sunday night. Washburn and Steratore worked the Bengals' win against the Titans in Nashville on Saturday, with Ian Eagle and Trent Green.

From @cbssportsgang via Twitter:

Nantz said he'll announce the PGA Tour's Farmers Insurance Open from the site of the AFC title game. Arrowhead Stadium is hosting the game for the fourth con

"Next week, the week of the AFC Championship game, will debut our season coverage of the PGA Tour, I'm going to call Friday and Saturday night's action from the stadium, wherever the AFC Championship game is being held," Nantz told reporters during a conference call last Wednesday.

In Feb. 2021, former Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden suggested he could do a better job than Romo at predicting which plays will happen, saying Romo is "only right like 30 percent of the time."

In Jan. 2020, Colin Cowherd said he was already convinced that Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow "is Tony Romo" as a passer.
