Referee, Announcers revealed for Eagles season opener against Atlanta
The Eagles look to be in good hands for their season opener on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons. This week’s refereeing list was released recently alongside the announcing schedule, and luckily Philly landed a pretty solid duo.
The lead ref for Sunday will be Scott Novak. With refs, no news is good news and after an in-depth Google search, nothing controversial emerged regarding Novak. His last game working that involved the Eagles was against the New York Giants in 2019.
Covering Sunday’s game on FOX will be Kevin Burkhardt, Greg Olsen, and Pam Oliver. Olsen is new to the broadcasting booth so it’ll be exciting to see how the former player does. Meanwhile, Burkhardt and Oliver are a solid duo and it could be a lot worse for Philly fans.
Kick off is slated for 1:00 in Atlanta. There is a lot of excitement from everyone in the city for this new era of Eagles football. So hopefully, everything can get off to a good start on the road.
