Week 16

Houston at Indianapolis – Jerome Boger

Denver at Buffalo – Walt Anderson
Arizona at Cincinnati – Terry McAulay
Jacksonville at Tennessee – Gene Steratore
Oakland at Kansas City – Mike Carey
Miami at New England – Al Riveron
NY Giants at NY Jets – Pete Morelli
St. Louis at Pittsburgh – Clete Blakeman
Minnesota at Washington – Tony Corrente
Tampa Bay at Carolina – Carl Cheffers
Cleveland at Baltimore – Walt Coleman
San Diego at Detroit – Ed Hochuli
San Francisco at Seattle – Ron Winter
Philadelphia at Dallas – Bill Leavy

Chicago at Green Bay – John Parry

Atlanta at New Orleans – Jeff Triplette

Off: Scott Green


  1. I’m going to guess Steratore in Pittsburgh since it’s Christmas and he hasn’t done a Steelers game at all this year.

  2. I have a feeling Triplette is going to work the Atlanta-New Orleans MNF game. Him and Parry are the only two refs who have not done a Monday Night Game and Parry is ineligible for this game.

  3. Joe Platania says

    Thanks to Preth’s explanation on the Week 15 page, my guesses for CLE-BAL are Coleman, Triplette, Steratore and Carey, although the point made about Steratore not doing PIT all year is valid…

  4. Well, what do you know? My ref source within the Ravens has told me it’s COLEMAN for CLE-BAL. First on the board this week!

  5. Hey, I didn’t pay my $599.00 for nothing this season !!! lol

  6. Joe, 2nd time for the Milkman doing a Ravens game !!! Worked the week #9 game against Pittsburgh !!! Preth that makes it the 4th crew to work the Ravens 2 times this season. {reg. season}

  7. Any idea who will be doing the eagles @ biys game?

    • Not until the middle of the week.

    • One of Anderson, Corrente, Cheffers, Triplette, Leavy or Steratore.

      Each of these crews, except Triplette have had two or three PT games …neither Leavy or Corrente has had had SNF, while Cheffers and Steratore had it twice. While flex scheduling does mess up PT assignments I’d venture a guess at Triplette who only has one PT game, and has not had it since wk 5….also, Triplette has only had Eagles once, and not yet had Dallas

      • and you can ignore all that primetime info because I forgot next week is Christmas, and all the games are Saturday except for Chi-GB. But those 6 crews are eligible.

  8. Also, I’ll venture that Parry takes the Christmas Day game next week. He’s only had one primetime game as well, lives close-ish to Wisconsin and has had neither GB or Chicago all season

  9. SportingBecky says

    Guess for WK #16 2011 – Ed Hochuli

    Dolphins VS Patriots
    Jaguars VS Titans
    Falcons VS Saints

  10. ok couple guesses Based on Minimal Primetime exposure John parry will indeed be in Greenbay and Jeff Tripplette in New Oreleans guesses only from me

  11. From BTFS

    Buffalo – Anderson
    Pittsburgh – Blakeman
    Indianapolis – Boger
    Detroit – Hochuli
    Cincinnati – McAulay
    Tennessee – G. Steratore

  12. David first you have to win out and hope Pittsburgh looese and then it won’t be in Baltimore even if they do it will be in Foxboro home of the Patriots

  13. Scott Green must have the bye week since Blakeman and McAulay are working

    • and Riveron must be in New England

    • and Morelli must be in the Meadowlands for Giants-Jets, as he is the only eligible ref for it

    • and thus, finally, these are my guesses for what is not known, nor is a given with process of elimination:

      OAK-KC — Carl Cheffers
      MIN-WASH — Tony Corrente w/ Scott Green (if Parry and Leavy play out, this is the only possibility)
      TB-CAR — Mike Carey
      SF-SEA — Ron Winter
      PHL-DAL — Bill Leavy (if Parry is in GB, he has to be in DAL)
      CHI-GB — John Parry (would be $$$$)
      ATL-NO —Jeff Triplette (would bet $$)

  14. Al Riveron is in New England. Confirmed from Patriots PR and Media Notes.

  15. Zach Zaidman, sideline reporter for Chicago Bears, just announced via Twitter that Parry is indeed in for CHI @ GB on Christmas night.

  16. Parry’s first game ever in Green Bay. He still has yet to work in Chicago and Denver

  17. Preth or anyone, Does anybody REALLY know how Tony Corrente is really doing? He was supposed to ref Seattle-Chicago but Hochuli ended up subbing for him.

    • I’ve got the distinct impression that he’s hanging in there – well enough that he had a legitimate shot to work last week’s game. Otherwise Hochuli would have been scheduled to work that game from the very beginning.

      Unfortunate that it didn’t work out, but maybe he’ll be able to recover during the offseason and be in good health for the start of next season.

  18. Neither Boger nor Carey has done a west coast game yet this year. Furthest Carey has been is Denver and Boger Arizona

  19. SportingBecky says

    Niceeeeeeeeeeee….. I my other Photog friend from Facebook and Twitter who took photos of Ed Hochuli during the AFC Championship game 2011 Jets VS Steelers……….

    >>>>> Will be at the Chargers VS Lions game WK #16 2011… YES!

    I received some nice ones this past week and they are posted on NFL85.com site!!!

  20. I was actually right and im thinking well see Carey in Kansas City and Cheffers In Carolina hope im right 2 times this week 😀

  21. Mike Carey in Kansas City. Confirmed by Chiefs PR.

  22. Joe, Gerry, and Ryan – the spam filter is a bit wonky right now, sorry that your posts didn’t go instantly.

  23. Just FYI….according to my sources at Ashburn Park for the Skins Tony Corrente is a game time decision. There was mention from Carl Johnson that a replacement might be named at the last minute to fill in for Corrente. That replacement was not named at this time but one would conclude with Green living in the VA/DC area with his job that he would be more than likely to be that fill-in as most have already stated.

  24. Did anyone notice the Vegas line went down 4.5 points last week in the Chiefs – Packers game ???

  25. Would like to give Cheffers some kudos for calling maybe the best game of the year. Quick and clean.

  26. Just came up with this strange stat lol , Scott Green who is off this week has not worked a game in the “south” , the three cities in Florida and Atlanta since 2008

  27. Hey Tom, you had an excellent answer to one of the questions for you the other day. I’d give it a 50 on a scale of 1-10.


  28. tony is working his game glad to see him back and able to give it the go hes a pro! Merry christmas to all

  29. Good to see Corrente back in action in Washington this week
