The Cleveland Browns are taking on the Baltimore Ravens on NBC's Sunday Night Football this evening.

While the game is getting a lot of attention on social media, so, too, is the performance of NBC analyst Cris Collinsworth.

Every week, fans take to social media to react to Collinsworth's performance, mainly his opening game slide.

This week's was pretty good.

Collinsworth is working with NBC's No. 2 announcer - Mike Tirico. The veteran announcer is expected to land the full-time Sunday Night Football gig at some point in the coming years, perhaps as early as 2022. "Tonight’s slide-in rating: 7.9/10 The tight zoom on Tirico’s opener made velocity difficult to judge. While lacking the usual positive energy, Cris hit us with another lip bite (2 consecutive weeks) and excellent post-slide proximity with a dominant lean in," Collinsworth's official slide rater tweeted.

Michaels is off this week, with Tirico filling in.

The Browns and the Ravens, meanwhile, are tied, 0-0, on Sunday night.

Tonight's game is airing on NBC.
