The NFL had its first all black officiating team at last night’s game between the Los Angeles Rams and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The seven members of the crew have a combined 89 seasons of NFL experience and have worked six super bowls.

The league was the first of any major sport to hire a black official in 1965.
