Chris Simms Suffers From Unreal Brain Fart, Completely Butchers About 75% Of An Ad Read On-Air

Chris Simms Butchers Ad Read On-Air During Thursday Night Football

Despite making a career out of speaking on-air in recent years, NBC Sports’ NFL analyst Chris Simms absolutely butchered an ad read during the Thursday Night Football pregame show ahead of the game between the Los Angeles Rams and Buffalo Bills.

Prior to the first game of the 2022 NFL season, Simms — the son of Super Bowl champion Phil Simms and a former NFL quarterback who played for the Tampa Bay Bucs, Denver Broncos, and Tenessee Titans during his seven-year-long career — completely botched a promo for FanDuel as he stumbled through and mispronounced about 75% of the ad’s script.

“Now — and let’s — if you want to be an expert like in crush… like your friends on your grape (?), listen to Matthew Berry, alright. Now, downlude [sic] FanDuel app. Sportsbook app, excuse me. New customers get a guaranteed $150 of free bets with a single $5 bet on any Week 1 any-FL [sic] game,” Simms said during the trainwreck of a FanDuel promo.

Following the embarrassing moment, Simms — and NBC’s NFL broadcast in general — was getting thoroughly roasted on Twitter:

The Thursday Night Football game saw last season’s Super Bowl champions, the Los Angeles Rams, take on this season’s betting favorites to lift the Lombardi Trophy, the Buffalo Bills.

Josh Allen and the Bills certainly backed up their status as preseason favorites as they absolutely smoked the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday night, who looked like a shell of their Lombardi Trophy-winning selves. Allen, the favorite to win the NFL’s MVP award, also looked like he’s prepared to live up to evert ounce of hype that he’s received during the offseason.
