|10.25.13 at 8:15 am ET|
Walt Anderson will work as the referee for Sunday’s Dolphins-Patriots game, according to our friends at FootballZebras.com.
Anderson, a retired dentist and current Big 12 coordinator of officials, has worked two Super Bowls over the course of his career, Super Bowl XXXV (where he worked as a line judge) and XLV (where he was the lead official).
When it comes to New England, this is his second Patriots game of the 2013 season — he worked as the referee for the regular-season opener against the Bills in Buffalo. (In that one, New England was flagged for four penalties for a total of 36 yards, while the Bills were hit with 10 penalties for 75 yards.) Prior to that, his last game involving New England was the second contest of the 2011 season when the Patriots met the Chargers at Gillette Stadium. He also worked the 2004 AFC title game in Pittsburgh between the Patriots and Steelers, a game that had just three penalties (one on New England, two on Pittsburgh) all afternoon.
