Hochuli first dropped by in week 10 against the New York Giants, in what was a nerve-wrackingly close game. This play took place:

The Patriots then saw Hochuli in the season finale against the Miami Dolphins, which the Patriots promptly lost through an interesting coaching decision to run down the clock for the entire first half of the game.
Now the Patriots will see Hochuli in Denver against the Broncos. The Patriots are 2-3 over the past five games with Hochuli at the helm, including last season's loss against the Green Bay Packers (coincidentally also on the road).
Hochuli's known for calling a tight game where he calls a penalty more per game than the average official, 3% fewer penalties on the home team, and the home team wins a hair more than average.
This should be interesting.
