The Carolina Panthers' 19-14 victory over the New York Jets didn't just see Zach Wilson's highly anticipated debut under center for the Gang Green.
Maia Chaka was the first Black woman to work as an official in an NFL game.
Prior to the occasion, Chaka said the game would be a "proud moment for myself" and those around her:
Maia Chaka is making history today.<br><br>She will be the first black woman to officiate an NFL game. 👏👏👏<br><br>📺: <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/NYJvsCAR?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#NYJvsCAR</a> -- 1pm ET on CBS<br>📱: NFL app <a href="https://t.co/EaYYsuEA2J">pic.twitter.com/EaYYsuEA2J</a>
The league announced in March she would join the list of game officials for the upcoming season. She had previously entered the NFL's Officiating Development Program in 2014 and officiated games in the Pac-12 and Conference USA.
Now, Chaka has etched her name into history.
