Here's a look at the referees for both the AFC and NFC Championship games

By John Breech | CBS Sports

The NFL has officially announced the two officiating crews that will be working the AFC and NFC title games this weekend, and if there are any conspiracy theorists out there who also happen to be Rams fans, they're probably not going to like the decision the league made for the NFC Championship.

The lead referee in the Rams-Saints game will be Bill Vinovich, who also happened to be the ref when the two teams met earlier this season. Back in Week 9, Vinovich and his crew basically kept their flags in their pockets during the Saints 45-35 win over the Rams. There were only six accepted penalties in the game with four going against Los Angeles and two against New Orleans. ...

One reason the Rams might not be thrilled to see Vinocvich is because they always seem to struggle when he's officiating. Of the Rams' three losses in 2018, Vinovich was the referee in two of them, including that Saints game. They also have an ugly record over the past six year with him, which you'll see below.
