CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Oct. 3, 2005) -- Mike and Don Carey became the first
brothers to officiate an NFL game together when they were part of the
crew of the game between
the Carolina Panthers and Green Bay Packers.
Mike Carey was the referee, while Don Carey was the back judge. Their
assignments prevented them from getting too close to one another for
most of the game.
Mike Carey came into the league in 1990. Don, his older brother, got his
first NFL assignment in 1995.
