It all started when Mike Tirico left ESPN...

Something here is off
"2018 was also the year that Fox took over Thursday Night Football, turning Tirico into a studio host and fill-in play by play broadcaster. Fox’s TNF deal also forced Joe Buck and Troy Aikman to increase their workload, calling two games per week throughout much of the season. Fox was reportedly interested in (who else?) Tirico to call the package."
Tirico has not worked with FOX. He has filled the role as decribed for NBC on occasion.

Nothing was off, it's just how you interpret the wording.
Tirico called TNF games for NBC in 2017, when they shared the package with CBS. When FOX took TNF over, it meant Tirico no longer had a regular PBP gig with NBC, which put him in a studio/backup PBP role.
