Albert-Gannon get the call
By Mike Reiss
The Patriots visit the Bills on Sunday in a battle of 2-0 teams, and the game will be on CBS. Marv Albert (play-by-play) and Rich Gannon (analysis) are on the call.
As detailed in this ESPN.com piece, this is Albert's first year calling NFL games for CBS. He worked for NBC Sports from 1977-97 and announced the NFL on NBC for 19 years. He was the play-by-play voice for Westwood One Radio's coverage of Monday Night Football from 2002-09 alongside Boomer Esiason.
A look at this year's broadcast teams on Patriots games:
at Dolphins: Mike Tirico/Ron Jaworski/Jon Gruden (ESPN)
vs. Chargers: Jim Nantz/Phil Simms (CBS)
