The Super Bowl 53 broadcasting crew has received almost as much attention in the last week as the game itself.
The reason? Tony Romo. The former Cowboys quarterback and current prognosticator/color commentator has been almost unanimously loved by America for his enthusiasm and innate ability to correctly predict what play is coming next.
Romo will be calling his first Super Bowl on Sunday, but there is plenty more coverage planned leading up to and into the contest between the Patriots and Rams.
Here’s everything to know about the Super Bowl broadcast in 2019, including how to watch the game live on TV or stream online plus the list of announcers.
