TV: Nantz and Simms on the call

By Mike Reiss

The New England Patriots visit the Denver Broncos in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday (3 p.m. ET), and the game will be broadcast on CBS, with Jim Nantz (play-by-play) and Phil Simms on the call.

This will mark the fifth Patriots game of the season for Nantz and Simms, tying CBS colleagues Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf for the top spot. Those are viewed as CBS' top two tandems, which reflects how the Patriots are viewed by the network.
