Twitter roasts Jason Witten for latest announcing gaffe at Pro Bowl
ESPN’s Jason Witten has taken a lot of criticism for his uneven performances in the Monday Night Football booth this season, and he had another forgettable moment early on in Sunday’s Pro Bowl.
After AFC quarterback Patrick Mahomes found tight end Eric Ebron for the game’s first touchdown, Witten remarked that Ebron “was his guy all year” despite the fact that the two play for rival teams.

Not only are Mahomes and Ebron on different teams, but the quarterback’s Kansas City Chiefs actually beat the tight end’s Indianapolis Colts in the divisional round of the playoffs, so it’s hard to know what was going through Witten’s mind at that point.
Twitter certainly didn’t let him off the hook for his gaffe.
Jason Witten can’t even commentate the most irrelevant game of the year.

Hey Witten, that’s enough.

Who's gonna tell Jason Witten that Ebron and Mahomes don't play for the same team during the regular season?? LOL!

Witten has made light of some of his previous mistakes in the booth this season. Expect him to do the same here or ignore it entirely.
