Week 9 referee assignments




Thursday’s battle in Ohio featuring the undefeated Bengals hosting the Browns will be officiated by first-year referee John Hussey. This week six teams have byes (Cardinals, Ravens, Lions, Texans, Chiefs, and Seahawks), which means that four officiating crews will get the week off: Walt Anderson, Pete Morelli, John Parry, and Jeff Triplette.

[Editor’s note: A previous version of this post had Carl Cheffers listed as the Thursday night referee, verified by information published by the NFL public relations department (twice!). Football Zebras has confirmed that John Hussey is the Thursday night referee and that Carl Cheffers has the Dolphins-Bills game on Sunday. We take pride in providing accurate and timely information on the assignments, and I apologize that we were incorrect.]
