Pete Morelli, shown here in last year’s playoffs, will have the duties on the ESPN game Thursday night.
Unfortunately, our ability to report the officiating assignments has run up against a buzzsaw. Despite a redundant system of sources, Football Zebras has only been able to confirm a small number of assignments heading into the Thursday night kickoff. We will update this post as we find more, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we still have blank spaces when some games kick off.
All times are Eastern.
