Referee for Seahawks-Eagles: Bill Vinovich

The Seahawks’ relationship with officials this season has been, shall we say, a little frayed.

Sunday’s game against the Eagles, though, will be refereed by an official who the last few years has overseen some of Seattle’s biggest wins — Bill Vinovich (that news courtesy of FootballZebras.com).

This is the second Seattle game this season for Vinovich’s crew, the first coming in the 26-20 overtime win over Denver (a game in which Seattle got seven penalties for 37 yards to four for 27 for the Broncos).

And as I wrote prior to that game, Vinovich refereed three other Seattle games in the 2012 and 2013 seasons — blowout wins over San Francisco and Jacksonville at home and at Atlanta — contests the Seahawks won by a combined 120-40.

Also potentially encouraging for the Seahawks, Vinovich’s crew ranked near the bottom of the NFL in flags thrown per game after week 12 at 14.5 per game.
