My prediction: Tony Corrente's crew to officiate Sunday's game
Corrente's crew is one of only 5 NFL crews NOT to have done a Patriots game this year as they have had a different crew for each of the 12 games. Of the remaining 5 crews, only Corrente's crew has not officiated either a Steeler or Patriot game.
The other 4 crews that have not officiated a Patriots game are
Gerry Austin (East-Crew B) officiated Pittsburgh week 3
Ron Winter (East Crew J) officiated Pitt week 10 (too soon to do Pitt again)
Terry McCauley (East -Crew G) did Pitt week 5
Bill Leavy (West D)- only worked 8 games the whole season.
Assuming that the crews truly randomly are assigned, it seems logical that they would get this game..........
Corrente's crew was the one that correctly call the unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on Gibbs for trying to freeze the kicker with a second timeout.
Just my $0.02,
