Officiating crew announced for Detroit Lions vs. Minnesota Vikings

On Monday night, the Detroit Lions were shafted by an NFL officiating team captained by Clete Blakeman.

Blakeman and his crew ended up stealing a win from the Lions by making multiple calls that my seven year old son would get right 100% of the time.

That being said, we (and the Lions) are putting that game behind us and looking forward to Week 7 at Ford Field against the Minnesota Vikings.

According to Football Zebras, the Week 7 officiating assignments have been revealed and the Lions vs. Vikings game will be officiated by a crew led by Brad Rogers.

If the past six weeks are any indication, you can expect to see a lot of penalties called this week as Rogers’ crew averages 16.83 penalties called per game, nearly two more than the league average.

As far as Clete and he crew go, the will be officiating the San Francisco @ Washington Redskins game.
