NFL Refs Make Triumphant Return to STANDING OVATION

The NFL's regular referees returned to the gridiron tonight to a thundering applause from the crowd -- and even got a personal welcome-back hug from the scariest man in football ... Ray Lewis.

As you know by now ... the NFL reached a deal yesterday with the real refs -- ending the Reign of Error ... courtesy of the infamous replacement refs.

As the entered the field for tonight's Ravens-Browns match up, the refs each tipped their caps in a show of appreciation for fans' support.

Now it's only a matter of time before they screw up a call and we can trash them too. Watch TMZ Sports on FS1 Get the new TMZ Sports app!
