Conference Championship Sunday will determine which teams will play for the Lombardi Trophy.
Will it be Tom Brady’s Bucs or Aaron Rodgers’ Packers representing the NFC? Can Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs repeat and come out of the AFC again? Or will Josh Allen and the upstart Bills take the crown? Those questions will be answered on Sunday. In the meantime, check out who will be officiating on Super Bowl Sunday:

History will be made at Super Bowl LV.
Sarah Thomas will become the first woman to officiate in the Super Bowl. Thomas will be the Down Judge on referee Carl Cheffers’ staff. Super Bowl officiating crews are made up of the year’s best and highest-graded officials. So to see Thomas here is a sign of an excellent season of officiating. Good work!
And if all goes well, we’ll not hear any officials names brought up on Super Bowl Sunday. Because if that’s the case, it means everyone suiting up is doing a good job. So here’s hoping that’s the case.
