The first NFL regular season game to air on Amazon Prime is not simply tonight's game. Kirk Herbstreit and Al Michaels are making their collaborative debut as well.

NFL work with the Worldwide Leader has previously been done by Herbstreit, ESPN's top college football game analyst.

In contrast, he will be hosting Thursday Night Football for Amazon on a weekly basis in addition to his weekend college football obligations for ESPN.

Throughout the first half of tonight's football game, Herbstreit was a popular topic on football Twitter.

"Herbstreit is vastly underappreciated! He's right behind Aikman as the second best pro or college player in my opinion "said Ike Reese, a former Eagles linebacker and current radio host.

Much of the reaction to Herbstreit's performance tonight seems to be people talking about how well he's doing or how strange it sounds to hear him call an NFL game.

Some people thought Herbstreit should have done Cris Collinsworth's patented slide in.

Herbie sounds as solid as ever. He's a pro, and he should be able to handle this job well throughout the season.

Kirk Edward Herbstreit is an American analyst for ESPN's College GameDay, a college football television show.
