NFL fans watching the Dallas Cowboys take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in their first game of the regular season on Sunday night expressed concern about Cris Collinsworth.
Collinsworth, the longtime NBC broadcaster, took on his regular role as a color commentator alongside Mike Tirico, calling the match for the first “Sunday Night Football” broadcast of 2022. It sounded like Collinsworth was sick, though.
His hoarse voice was in the mind of those watching the match. It was enough for Tirico and Collinsworth to check his health in the first quarter of the game.
“I feel great,” Collinsworth said.

Tirico replied: “You feel fine, it’s only two games, three days, red eyes, a lot of travel. My husband is playing hurt.”

Still, Collinsworth was talked about on social media.
The Buccaneers led the Cowboys 12-3 at halftime. Both teams had problems with their offensive lines as both teams have injuries to their staff groups.
The Cowboys sacked Tom Brady twice in the first half, even allowing him to go 11-for-16 for 160 yards. The team did lose Chris Godwin to a hamstring injury.
