Breaking down Ravens' 'official' record

In an effort to improve officiating next season, the NFL has spent this past year grooming 21 officials in its newly created developmental program with the idea that these officials will be better prepared to step into games as early as next season, a league source told ESPN. The belief is many of these officials can step in and provide immediate results.

When I heard this news, I started thinking about how the Baltimore Ravens have fared against particular officiating crews. Here's a breakdown of the Ravens' record over the last six seasons (the John Harbaugh era) against each current NFL referee and the average penalties called on the Ravens by his crew:

Referee: Record (Average penalties)

Ed Hochuli: 5-0 (5.6)

Bill Vinovich: 1-0 (3.0)

Walt Anderson: 4-1 (7.2)

Jeff Triplette: 4-1 (8.6)

Tony Corrente: 4-1 (5.4)

Carl Cheffers: 5-2 (6.0)

Pete Morelli: 4-2 (6.3)

John Parry: 4-2 (4.8)

Clete Blakeman: 2-1 (7.0)

Mike Carey: 2-1 (7.6)

Terry McAulay: 2-1 (7.0)

Scott Green: 4-3 (6.7)

Bill Leavy: 3-2 (6.2)

Gene Steratore: 4-4 (6.75)
