This will be his 14th postseason assignment and his fifth Conference Championship. He also worked 5 Wild Card Playoffs, 3 Divisional Playoffs, and Super Bowl XLI.

I don't recall any controversy over officiating from last year's game, so this could be a good thing. Seattle is a very physical team; how tight they are on defensive holding calls may play a big part in the outcome.

I think I read that Corrente is flag happy, which could draw a few more of those holding/PI in the secondary on them. I don't expect this crew to allow a very physical game, like in Buffalo.

His crew is. This isn't his normal crew though.
