Everyone Said Same Thing About Cris Collinsworth On Sunday

NBC had the Sunday afternoon NFC Divisional Round game between the Los Angeles Rams and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

It was pretty weird to hear Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth broadcast a game in the afternoon. NFL fans are so used to hearing Michaels and Collinsworth on Sunday night.

"Hearing Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth in the daytime feels very strange, like seeing your teacher at a restaurant," one fan tweeted.

Well said.

They got to broadcast a legendary game, though.

The Rams topped the Bucs, 30-27, after holding off an epic comeback from Tom Brady and Tampa Bay. Matt Stafford and the Rams are off to the NFC Championship Game, where they will face Jimmy Garoppolo and the 49ers.

Kickoff between the Rams and 49ers is set for 6:30 p.m. E.T. on FOX.
