The rest of the Cheffers Arizona crew will consist of umpire Roy Ellison, down judge Jerod Phillips, line judge Jeff Bergman, field judge John Jenkinsside judge Eugene Hall, back judge Dino Paganelli and official Mark Butterworth.

Ellison, Bergman, Hall and Paganelli also worked two other Super Bowls. Phillips, Jenkins and Butterworth will work in the Super Bowl for the first time.
