    Where's Hochuli? Not at Broncos-Chargers

    SAN DIEGO (AP) Looking for Ed Hochuli to work another Denver-San Diego game, this one with the AFC West title on the line?

    Forget it. Hochuli, whose blunder helped decide the first game between the Broncos and Chargers - in favor of Denver - will be a couple thousand miles east in Indianapolis on Sunday for the Titans-Colts game. The Broncos and Chargers play at night in the AFC West showdown that concludes the regular-season schedule.

    Hochuli and his crew will be officiating in Indianapolis because the schedule is drawn up before the season. In any case, by league policy, officiating crews do not do two games between the same teams in any season.

    The referee at the Broncos-Chargers game will be John Parry.

    In the final minute of the first meeting in Denver in Week 2, Hochuli ruled that a ball that slipped from Broncos quarterback Jay Cutler's grasp was an incomplete pass instead of a fumble.

    The ball was recovered by the Chargers and Hochuli later acknowledged his decision was wrong.

    However, by rules the call could not be changed, Denver kept possession and eventually scored on a fourth-down pass, then made a 2-point conversion and won 39-38.

    If the Chargers (7-8) had won the game, they would already have clinched the division over the Broncos (8-7). Now the winner of Sunday night's game will be the champion.

    Per this NFL rule, the same officiating crew wouldnt be doing a game between the same 2 teams again anyways. :bolt:

    So, all the fans that would have liked to see this occur, per policy, it aint happening!
