Fifth Pats game for top CBS team
By Mike Reiss
The Patriots' game against the Colts on Sunday will be broadcast on CBS, with the top team of Jim Nantz (play by play) and Phil Simms (analysis) calling the action.
This marks the fifth of 10 Patriots games that Nantz and Simms will work.
Coincidentally, Belichick mentioned Simms when asked a question Monday on whether he pays attention to "expert" predictions in the NFL.
"To be honest with you, I don’t really spend a lot of time analyzing that or listening to it," Belichick responded. "I think sometimes somebody with a totally objective point of view, whether it’s Cris Collinsworth or Phil Simms or whoever it is ... guys with experience, guys that really understand how the teams really do match up or how they see each other, I think sometimes they can give you some interesting insight into the game, particularly if they have some inside information."
Here is this season's Patriots broadcasting lineup:
Patriots-Bengals: Jim Nantz/Phil Simms
Patriots-Bills: Kevin Harlan/Solomon Wilcots
Patriots-Dolphins: Mike Tirico/Ron Jaworski/Jon Gruden
Patriots-Vikings: Thom Brennaman/Troy Aikman/Pam Oliver
Patriots-Browns: Bill Macatee/Rich Gannon
Patriots-Steelers: Al Michaels/Cris Collinsworth/Andrea Kremer
