She spent the past two seasons as a down judge after starting out as a line judge, and was named an alternate for the Atlanta Falcons-Los Angeles Rams' wild-card playoff game in 2017.

Sarah Thomas will make history this weekend when she becomes the first woman to officiate an NFL Playoff game. Thomas is no stranger to making history. She was also chosen as the first woman to officiate a college football bowl game.

Thomas, who is listed as a sales representative from the University of Mobile in Alabama, will be part of crew for Ron Torbert, a referee she commonly works with.

Terri Valenti was the replay official in Saturday's playoff game between the Chiefs and Colts, also a first.

At the time of her appointment to the National Football League in 2015, Thomas, a native of MS, said she "was speechless" when an National Football League official called her and offered her the job. "So tucking my hair, I blend in and I'm just another official". The title of her position was recently changed from "head linesman" to "down judge" by Senior VP of NFL Officiating Al Riveron to be more inclusive.

Thomas says she wants to focus on "being the best official I can be".

Thomas's career has been an ongoing blitz against sexism in the NFL.

"I've just been doing this truly because I love it", she said.
