NFL moves referee crew off Colts’ Sunday night game
(Dec. 1, 2015)– The NFL has moved referee Pete Morelli’s crew off the upcoming Sunday night game between Indianapolis and Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania.
Instead, the crew will work an afternoon game between the Eagles and Patriots.
Morelli’s group was heavily criticized by both sides after the 49ers-Cardinals game Sunday. Arizona coach Bruce Arians said the officials “can’t count to three.”
Earlier this season, side judge Rob Vernatchi from Morelli’s crew was suspended for one game for not properly keeping track of the clock in a Pittsburgh-San Diego matchup. At the time, the league said the error would affect the full-season evaluation of Morelli’s crew.
