FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Sarah Thomas is the first woman to work an NFL playoff game as an on-field official.
Thomas was the down judge in Sunday's Divisional Round game between the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Chargers. That's a first, according to the league's Twitter account.
Thomas was hired in 2015 and was already the league's first female full-time official.
