Shannon Eastin is set to make NFL history.
Eastin is listed as the line judge in Sunday's St. Louis Rams-Detroit Lions game, making her the first woman to be an official in a regular-season game.
She became the first female official to work an NFL preseason game last month as the line judge when Green Bay played at San Diego. The Pro Football Hall of Fame has her cap and whistle from that preseason game, which will be put on display yet in Canton, Ohio.
The 42-year-old Eastin has been a referee in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference - college football's second-highest level - and has 16 years of officiating experience.
