This is the only week anybody is going to care, but as the NFL's real referees return to the field, presiding over Sunday night's Giants at Eagles game will be Ron Winter, your Eagletarian has learned.

Winter, who wears No. 14 (go out to Modell's and see if you can buy his jersey!) has been an NFL ref since 1995. He is retired from his other job, as a phys ed professor at Western Michigan University. He lives in Kalamazoo, Mich.

Winter gained Youtube fame last year when he got caught in a pileup as Ravens and Bengals players scrambled for a fumble.
