Referees appeared to miss a blatant Pass Interference call late in the Rams’ 26–23 win over the Saints in the NFC Championship on Sunday.
The no-call came with under two minutes left in the game with the Saints on the Rams 13-yard line. On a third-and-10 situation, quarterback Drew Brees threw an incomplete pass to Tommy Lee Lewis. But the Rams’ Nickell Robey-Coleman appeared to interfere.
The Saints then settled for a field goal to make the score 23–20 and gave Los Angeles one last drive attempt. The Rams then tied up the game with a field goal with 15 seconds to play. The game then went to overtime and Los Angeles sealed it with a 57-yard field goal from Greg Zuerlein.
Several NFL players and writers criticized the no-call on Twitter.
The Rams will face the AFC Championship winner in the Super Bowl on Feb. 3.
