Settle in for a Sunday of lengthy explanations. Ed “Guns” Hochuli is the lead official for Patriots-Bills today at 4 p.m.
In a season of refereeing disasters that left fans and announcers begging for further on-field explanation, Hochuli personifies the other extreme.
He doesn’t shut up. Which – along with his lantern jaw and swollen arms which are always ready for display – is part of his charm.

-- Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts have the call for CBS.
-- For those who like to watch their money run up and down the field, the Patriots are eight-point favorites and your Las Vegas total is 46.5.
