BALTIMORE (AP) -Back in action after his admitted incorrect call last week, NFL referee Ed Hochuli worked Sunday's game between the Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens.
Hochuli's call last Sunday played a key role in Denver's 39-38 win over San Diego. Denver quarterback Jay Cutler dropped back to pass, the ball slipped from his hand and a San Diego player recovered. But Hochuli, who has refereed two Super Bowls, ruled it an incomplete pass.
Denver retained possession, scored a touchdown and then won with a successful 2-point conversion.
In his return Sunday, Hochuli spoke with confidence on the loudspeaker during the first half.
During the days leading up to the game, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said, ``Mistakes are a part of our game. We do everything we can to avoid them, but Ed's a fantastic official, and he'll continue to be a great official.''
