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