The AFC and NFC Championship Games are set with the San Francisco 49ers, Philadelphia Eagles, Kansas City Chiefs and Cincinnati Bengals all vying for a chance to play in Super Bowl LVII.
But who will run these games? This has become a more urgent question for fans over the past five years, since the 2019 Saints-Rams NFC Championship Game loss.
on Monday, NFL announces referee assignments for Championship Sunday. John Hussey will be in charge of the NFC Championship game early in the day, while Ron Torbert will be in charge of the AFC Championship game.
Hussey has been an NFL official since 2002 and has worked three Championship Sundays and one Super Bowl.
Torbert has been an NFL official since 2010 and was the referee for Super Bowl LVI last year.
As you can imagine, NFL fans who know the stats already have their complaints about these referees. Curiously, all four fans feel equally disrespected by the two referees and their respective staff.
Unfortunately there’s no full officiating crew, so fans are being left to clench their fists at the first sign of suspicious activity from the referee. Too many sports these days have been replaced by Tic-Tac calls for fans to rely on them.
Will there be some shenanigans on the part of the officials on Championship Sunday?
