The Los Angeles Rams head to Tampa to take on the Buccaneers in the Divisional round on Sunday. They will have long time referee Shawn Hochuli leading the officiating crew.

Below, we’ll break down how Hochuli has stacked up against his peers in penalties called and how each team ranks in penalties called against them. His crew isn’t exactly the same as during the season, but as the lead, the referee can set the tone on how a game is called.

DraftKings Sportsbook currently has the Buccaneers as 2.5 point favorites in this matchup.
