    NFL Officiating Crews for the 2022 NFL Season

    The NFL officiating crews for the 2022 NFL season have been set, but which officials are teamed up with each of the 17 referees?

    As the 2022 season continues, the NFL officiating crews are firmly locked in place. At the start of the season, we had a number of changes, including a new referee and 10 new officials. Each officiating crew has at least one change from last season, be that the addition of a brand new official or one moving over from another team.
