It turns out, CBS broadcaster Tony Romo isn’t right all the time. He’s actually not even close to being right all the time.


The Wall Street Journal did an analysis of all the games that Romo color commentated this season. There were 2,599 of those plays, and WSJ looked at all the ones that Romo attempted to predict what the offense was going to do. The study showed that the former Cowboys quarterback made a prediction on 72 different plays and was right about what would happen 68 percent of the time.

To put that into perspective, Romo’s career completion percentage in the NFL was 65.3 percent. So he is more likely to predict a play in the broadcasting booth than complete a pass. Still pretty impressive.
