Cris Collinsworth’s “slide” into the broadcasting booth has become a viral Sunday Night Football tradition over the years.
The longtime NBC NFL analyst slides up next to his play-by-play announcing partner – usually Al Michaels, sometimes Mike Tirico – with kickoff moments away.
It didn’t happen this Sunday night, though.
Fans were disappointed by the lack of a pregame slide ahead of Sunday night’s game between the San Francisco 49ers and Indianapolis Colts.
No Collinsworth slide? It’s about to be a strange week

Some have joked that Collinsworth had to audible out of the pregame slide due to the bad weather in the Bay Area.
“Collinsworth slide would of been wind assissted. Good on the producers for avoiding controversy,” PFT Commenter joked.

The weather is pretty bad in San Francisco, tonight. There are heavy winds and storms throughout the area.

San Francisco is currently leading Indianapolis, 12-7, midway through the second quarter on Sunday evening.
The game is airing on NBC.
