NBC was geeked to show off new L.A. Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford on Sunday night football (Sept. 12), but they made a big mistake.
During Stafford’s debut game with the Rams, NBC showed a split screen of Stafford and his wife watching the game.
The problem was the woman on the screen wasn’t Stafford’s wife, Kelly Stafford. Oops.
This... was not Matthew Stafford's wife, Kelly. pic.twitter.com/yRAuR3G6NO— Awful Announcing (@awfulannouncing) September 13, 2021
NBC corrected themselves later in the game, with broadcaster Al Michaels stating that Kelly was wearing a yellow shirt with the No. 9 on it.
NBC (and Al Michaels) admitted their mistake soon thereafter 😳 pic.twitter.com/BugVMGkx9f— Awful Announcing (@awfulannouncing) September 13, 2021
The L.A. Rams beat the Chicago Bears with a 34-14 final score.
