The Saints had their eyes set on making the Super Bowl, jumping out to an impressive lead on the Rams. Only to see the Rams claw their way back into the game and tie up the score 20 - 20 with less than 2 minutes to play in regulation with the Saints in field goal range. On third down the Saints attempted a pass, the receiver was knocked down by the defender and no penalty flag was thrown. The TV commentators, the coach, and everybody watching couldn't believe there was no penalty called on the play. Had there been a penalty it would have been first down and the Saints could have run down the clock and attempted a game winning field goal from inside of twenty yards. But no, without the call, it became 4th down and the Saints had to kick the go ahead field goal with a minute and a half remaining on the clock giving the Rams time to win the game with a Touchdown or retie the score with a field goal. Wouldn't you know it. The Rams tied the game and won in overtime. Being an Atlanta Falcons fan, the number one rival of the Saints, I didn't want them to win and then play for league championship in our building. But I didn't want them to lose this way. That was bad officiating.
The Rams didn't win, the refs gave them a shot and they won by default.
