NFL. First game with two female coaches. Female official too. Washington @ Cleveland

Washington-Browns will be first NFL game with female coaches on both sidelines, female official on field

Women will be making NFL history this Sunday in Cleveland.

When the Washington Football Team and Cleveland Browns take the field in Week 3, it will mark the first regular-season game in NFL history that features female coaches on opposing sidelines and a female official on the field.

With the honors are Jennifer King, a full-year intern with Washington, Callie Brownson, the Browns' chief of staff, and NFL official Sarah Thomas.
