Before Josh Allen and Ryan Tannehill let it rip on "Monday Night Football," Dan Orlovsky seemingly offered something of a preview.

Orlovsky is known for being a beloved gasbag for ESPN; the former NFL passer has emerged as one of the network's more appreciated and reasonable football analysts, leading to more opportunities in the booth for ESPN and its sister networks.

During the Titans-Bills pregame show, viewers pointed out that Orlovsky seemingly passed gas — that's right, breaking wind, bottom burping — while delivering a preview. Take a listen for yourself:

So The Sporting News will close this very important investigation at: No, Dan Orlovsky did not fart during "Monday Night Football."

After all, it would be a slight surprise if the ESPN mics are that sensitive to pick up the motor revving.

As for Jimmy Johnson on Fox's NFL pregame show on Sunday?

That one was a lot more obvious.

Hopefully the Titans and Bills don't put on a stinker of a game.
