NFL Chiefs v Patriots Chiefs Patriots American Football

Any time Patrick Mahomes plays on CBS and gets the "Romo Game" with Jim Nantz and Tony Romo on the call, it's worth tuning in. Well let's be honest: Watch Mahomes play whenever you can. It's incredible viewing. But Romo certainly makes it even better.

Since joining the CBS booth in 2017, Romo has become the best color commentator in football. He mixes an innate ability to predict plays and analyze the football game with humor and enthusiasm that draws the viewer in. That's never more on display than when the former Cowboys QB gets to announce a game with top-end quarterback play.

In Week 4 of the 2020 NFL season, Romo and Nantz will call the New England Patriots at the Kansas City Chiefs. It'll be without Cam Newton due to a positive COVID-19 test, and it's delayed a day due to follow-up testing. But you can still watch on CBS at 7:05 p.m. ET on Monday night. Before the Mahomes-Romo reunion, we took a look back at some of Romo's most entertaining calls of Mahomes doing extraordinary things.

'Look at the magic'

The Ravens-Chiefs game in 2018 was a fun one, and the firs

t two plays on this list come from that. Late in the first half, Mahomes scrambled before looking one way and throwing another - a no-look pass. He connected with Demarcus Robinson for a first down. 

"Look at the magic of the quarterback," Romo begins when the replay starts. "Just dancing, moving around, and then throws it almost no-look."

Just reading Romo's words isn't enough - give it a listen and hear how excited he gets. His voice almost cracks when he says "no-look."

'I'm not sure anybody else... can make this play'

Down seven late in that Dec. 2018 game against Baltimore, Kansas City faced a fourth-and-nine from its own 40-yard line. Mahomes was chased out of the pocket to his right and, while sprinting toward the right sideline, chucked the ball back against his body toward the middle of the field. He threw it pretty much from his own 35 to the Baltimore 27, where Tyreek Hill swooped back in and caught the ball.

"I'm not sure anybody else, Aaron Rodgers maybe, in the National Football League can make this play," Romo said. "And if it's not Tyreek Hill, no one else gets open on this play."

The Chiefs would score on that possession and win the game in overtime, 27-24. 

"All the way across the field when your body weight is falling out," Romo adds in amazement as the replay runs. 

Comparison to Michael Jordan

We couldn't track down the exact video clip of Romo comparing Mahomes to Michael Jordan, but it came directly after Mahomes threw a jump pass to Tyreek Hill for a touchdown on Nov. 10, 2019. His call of that play is fun, too.

He starts with some onomatopoeia, a sound we won't even attempt to spell. 

"I'm gonna jump to buy a tenth of a second, and you know what that is?" Romo continues. "It's spatial awareness to say if I jump here, I can get this ball off for sure because I need that tenth of a second because if I keep moving foward I'm gonna run into my linemen. He has these really unique knacks. Who's accurate then after that?"

One Twitter commenter congratulated MJ for having Mahomes compared to him.

'A level you just don't see very often'

Playing against Tennesse in last year's postseason, Mahomes managed to tip-toe down the sideline and power his way into the end zone for a 27-yard rushing touchdown. It's actually Nantz who gets the most excited at first on this play, finishing his touchdown call with "Out of this world!"

Romo goes on to use one of his more endearing commentary traits, describing the replay as it happens with his own silly play-by-play.

"Watch this," Romo said. "I'm like, OK, he's probably down, he's gonna run out. Oh, gives him a little shake. Oh, he's definitely out now. No, I'm gonna keep going, come back in, three more guys, nope. This quarterback has played at a level you just don't see very often."

'Wow'

Trailing to the Chargers in 2020's Week 2, Mahomes rolled to his right before uncorking an absolute dime down the field to Tyreek Hill for a 54-yard touchdown. Romo normally lays out and lets Nantz finish his call first, but Romo couldn't help himself and slipped a "Wow" in.

Romo went on to say, "I mean, the throw is only this guy, I think. Maybe, I'm trying to think of somebody else. You're about to get hit. You're throwing it 50, 60 yards down the field in the only spot Harris can't touch it, only Hill."

The Chiefs went on to win this game as part of a 3-0 start to the 2020 season.
