According to Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer, the Most Popular Referee in the NFL, Ed Hochuli, aka, Eddie Muscles, has been assigned the scintillating Bengals/Jaguars game Sunday. On an afternoon with a plethora of snoozers – among the 1 pm and 4 pm games, there’s only one matchup that involves two teams with winning records – Bengals at Jaguars might be the worst. How bad? According to these coverage maps at 506.com, Cincinnati and Jacksonville will probably be seen by the fewest number of viewers in the country. Miami (1-2) and Arizona (3-0) won’t be seen (thankfully) by many folks, either.
Marv Albert and Rich Gannon have the call, and since Marvelous will be hurting for material, , there will probably be at least half a dozen riffs on Hochuli.
