The NFL has assigned Walt Anderson as referee for Sunday's Patriots vs Broncos game. Why is that news...well, it will be his first Patriots games since he was referee for the Pats v Colts playoff game that led to Deflategate.

Anderson is in his 20th year as a NFL official, his 13th as a referee. Anderson has worked nearly 20 playoff games. He is a native of Texas.

The playoff game that Patriots fans remember is that January 18th, 2015 AFC title game.

NOTE: The Patriots vs Broncos game is live on Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket with pregame coverage beginning at 1:30pm.
