TAMPA, Fla.–The officiating crew for Sunday’s game between the Washington Redskins and Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium has been announced.

Al Riveron is the referee, heading the seven-man on-field crew.

Paul King is the umpire; Jim Mello is the head linesman; Julian Mapp is the line judge; Steve Zimmer is the field judge; Mike Weatherford is the side judge; and Richard Reels is the back judge.

The NFL’s regular officials are working a full slate of games Sunday after ratifying their eight-year labor deal with the league Saturday.

The regular officials worked Thursday night’s game in Baltimore after the league and the NFL Referees Association agreed to the deal Wednesday night.

That ended the sport’s use of replacement officials.
