CBS NFL commentator Tony Romo recently discussed what he expects to see this coming Sunday during the Super Bowl.

Romo won’t be calling the game this Sunday with Jim Nantz. But he did offer his opinion on the game in a recent interview. He believed there were six teams he thought could have been Super Bowl-bound. But, he thinks that the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadephia Eagles were the two best.

“They’re the two best right now because they’re both here, but there were six teams that I thought could win the Super Bowl throughout the year,”  Romo told Inside Hook. “I think the final four [Chiefs, Eagles, Bengals, 49ers] were correct, but you could have put Buffalo or Dallas in with those four. This was probably the most teams we’ve seen that could have really won the Super Bowl.”

Romo thinks that the Eagles should be favored to win. But, you can never count out the Chiefs because of Patrick Mahomes.

“I think the Eagles should be favored. Does that mean they’re gonna win? No, because the Chiefs have Patrick Mahomes. He’s just different,” he said.

Speaking of Mahomes, Romo brought up what another Super Bowl win could mean for his legacy.

“Patrick, in my opinion, is chasing Brady,” Romo said. “There’s almost nothing else. He could retire tomorrow and still be a top-five quarterback ever. I would maybe take him No. 4 in a draft of all-time quarterbacks, and if he keeps playing like this for three or four more years he might be No. 2.” Romo continued, “He’s just rare with all of his traits and gifts and he’s also a perfect ambassador for the sport because he’s humble.”

“He’s giving, he’s competitive and he’s gifted. He’s a guy that you tune in to watch, like Michael Jordan. You want to watch him regardless of who is playing or anything else. There are a few other quarterbacks who are really good, but what he’s done since his arrival in the league has been special.”

A win on Sunday, and Patrick Mahomes will have solidified his position as the best in the game today. Even ahead of the likes of Aaron Rodgers.
