On 19 September 2019, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady tweeted that he was turning off the Thursday Night Football game because he couldn't watch the "ridiculous penalties" for offensive holding Two days later, Riveron held a conference call with 17 NFL referees to discuss the frequency with which holding was being called. The next day, holding penalties were called an average of 2.9 times per game, down from a rate of 5.7 times per game over the previous three weeks, leading to speculation that Brady may have influenced how NFL referees officiate games.


During the 2018 season, Riveron received criticism for the manner in which NFL officials implemented penalties for roughing the passer, which had been deemed an area of emphasis the previous off-season. Critics of the new emphasis on the rule included former NFL Vice President of Officiating Dean Blandino as well as Mike Pereira. Riveron admitted in an interview that at least two of the roughing the passer penalties applied the first week of the season had been called incorrectly. In response, the NFL competition committee held a conference call to discuss the implementation of the rule. After the conference call, the competition committee issued a rule clarification, which led to a dramatic reduction in roughing the passer penalties in the following weeks.


Riveron has a wife, Patricia, and two sons, Tyler (died 25 September 2016) and Austin. He had a weekday job as a sales associate for Florida Storm Panels when he first started officiating.


On 19 February 2013, Riveron was promoted to the league's Senior Director of Officiating, a newly created position as a second-in-command under the league's former Vice President of Officiating, Dean Blandino.

Despite a shaky start the NFL announced that it would retain Riveron as its senior vice president of officiating for the 2018 season.

In 2004 the National Football League (NFL) hired Riverón as a side judge. Mike Pereira, the NFL's vice president for officiating, said "You can't teach the confidence and decisiveness with which he does things." He was the first Hispanic to officiate the NFL. Before every game he dedicates over 35 hours watching footage, studying the rules and meeting with his crew. He also spends hours in the gym to keep his fitness up.


His interest in officiating began in 1977 when he was invited to attend a football officials' clinic. After six weeks of training he began officiating in Pop Warner, taking up to six games a day. He moved onto high school games and by 1990 was officiating in college games. He started in the now-defunct Southern Independent Collegiate Officials Association, which included teams such as Miami and Notre Dame. In 1993 Riverón joined the Big East Conference officiating for six years as a field judge and a side judge. In 2000 Riverón moved to Conference USA, and spent the next three years working as a referee. His supervisor was veteran official Gerald Austin, who recommended him for the now defunct NFL Europe.
