  1. Carl Cheffers for San Diego @ Denver
    Bill Vinovich for Chicago @ New England

  2. Lorenzo Antonio says

    Chicago@NewEngland Bill Vinovich


    Tony Corrente is confirmed for JAX.


    Scott Green is in DAL on MNF. This will be his only game this season. He will be filling in due to injury.

    • If there was an injury at the R position (which there isn’t as of this post), they would get a ref who was previously scheduled on bye week. Refs don’t just come out of retirement?

      • It happened a few years ago with Tony Corrente and Scott Green out. The referee who had a bye took one crew, and the Thursday night referee pulled double duty. Green returned before Week 17 which is when there is a real crunch: all games on Sunday with only 1 crew on a bye.

        • Yes I can understand double-duty when there is a crunch, that makes sense if it is absolutely needed. But they wouldn’t pull a guy, such as Scott Green, out of retirement now to do a game, would they? I mean this IS coming from Lorenzo, plus I hadn’t ever heard of this happening. There are two crews scheduled off in week 8 and I still have yet to hear of any R that is injured. That is all I am saying…

    • Who is injured?

  5. David Herrera says


    The SEA@CAR game has been cross-flexed from Fox to CBS…

  6. David Herrera says

    ANOTHER FLEXIBLE SCHEDULING CHANGE: The HOU@TEN game has been cross-flexed from CBS to Fox. Like the aforementioned SEA@CAR game, the kickoff time will remain at 1:00 p.m. EDT…


    Wrolsrad confirmed in JAX. He will be working with Hochuli’s LJ. Confirmed on both Jags flip card and Andrew Catalon’s Twitter as he has the call on CBS.

    • Gerardo Perez says

      I can’t find the Jaguars flip card, and you are not the REAL David Herrera because I can tell by the gravatar. He has a gravatar and you don’t, so why can’t you GET OFF THIS WEBSITE!!

  8. David Herrera says

    Based on previous Monday night assignments, the “one referee per stadium per season,” “two referee per team per season” and “five-week rules,” Allen, Corrente & Torbert are the only three referees that are eligible for WAS@DAL.

    Four referees have yet to have a bye: Vinovich, Boger, Anderson & Cheffers. Something tells me that the latter two will be off this week; otherwise, we would have received an advanced (1-2 week) confirmation from Mark and/or “Opposite of Lorenzo.”

    With Coleman officiating MNF in Week 7 and the possibility of Anderson being off (see previous paragraph), the SD@DEN Thursday night game has been narrowed down to four eligible referees: Boger, McAulay, Morelli & Triplette.

    GB@NO (SNF) has been narrowed down to Coleman, Hochuli, Leavy, Morelli & Wrolstad.

  9. Lorenzo Antonio says

    Im guessing that Bill Vinovich will be in New England but ill check the pats flip card if it will be for sure if he will be in New England

  10. Wonder who is in London for an earlier start time game

  11. old men should not be refs! just look at the Carolina packer game today. reminds me of that wrent a wref when green bay played Seattle

  12. Joe Platania says

    Thanks to the trolls and impersonators, this will be the ONLY time I post this week… The pivotal BAL-CIN game this week will have CLETE BLAKEMAN at the helm, who was in BAL for the preseason Parkway clash against Washington…

    • Thanks a lot Joe but u really should treat the trolls as ghost. The ones that been here a long time knows who is who regardless of what those trolls try to do! Get an AVI like David & Mark is a great solution.

  13. Anyone have a feel for the suddenly best game this week (Eagles at Cardinals)?

  14. Drew Thurman says

    Triplette in Denver for TNF

  15. Lorenzo Antonio says

    NE@CHI is gonna be between Vinovich, Triplette or Brad Allen

  16. Herrera Antonio says

    NE@CHI Bob Frederic

  17. Anderson has Philadelphia/Arizona

  18. Gerardo Perez says

    According to the Titans game release, BILL LEAVY will work the Texans @ Titans game. He will be with Wayne Mackie HL106 and Undrey Wash U96. The latter’s normal officiating crew is confirmed to be off this week. Here’s the link:

    • David Herrera says

      That points to Cheffers being one of two referees who will be off this week. Since Mark indicates that Anderson is headed to Glendale, AZ, this means that either Boger or Vinovich (one or the other, but not both) will likely be off this week.

  37. any updates today. i don’t see one official thing written down on the list

  38. Dean Simone says

    Hi Walt, regarding the officiated in the Cards – Eagles game yesterday. How does your crew mate get the call correct and then get talked out of the call by another ref…when it is CLEAR it was a horse collar on Cooper towards the end of the game? And also not calling McCoy’s horse collar at all?

    Why is an illegal pick called on the Eagles bringing back a huge play …and then you allow the Cards to do the same pick for a TD and don’t call it.

    Why was Polk spotted incorrectly after clearly getting the first down if not the touchdown on the goal-line.

    How about the Maclin’s helmet to helmet shot? How blatant was that…yet why was that not called? This almost injured two players seriously. Shame on your crew,

    Please give me a logical explanation on all these questions that is supported by the film. To the eye of the observer you and you crew would appear to have had an agenda. It seems from week to week you NFL control games to set up favorable match-ups in the weeks to come. That’s the only explanation I could reach as to why you all seem so skewed to a given team week to week. Please Walt, as lifelong 53 year old NFL fan, player of game and coach, convince me how guys at your level could be so blatantly bad…or skewed…or, well just plain wrong.
