Saints owner vows to pursue changes in NFL policies

That's what some celebrating Los Angeles Rams players were calling their heroic kicker, Greg Zuerlein, on Sunday after he kicked the Rams into the Super Bowl with two clutch, long field goals.

Then they lost the coin flip to begin overtime.

Speaking maybe a half hour after Zuerlein's game-winning kick sailed through the uprights, Goff said he hadn't quite processed the fact that the Rams will be playing in Super Bowl LIII.

Rams nickel cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman blasted Saints wide receiver Tommylee Lewis and admitted after the game he wasn't concerned about the penalty - he thought is was a certainty - but was focused exclusively on not allowing a game-ending touchdown. On Los Angeles' practice squad since Week 3, Allen won't receive a Super Bowl bonus, but he will continue to get paid his weekly salary for an extra couple of weeks - which is a minimum of $15,200.

But no. We have more fetid stew coming from the New England Patriots.

When is the last time the Bears faced both teams that reached the Super Bowl in a season as they did this year with the Rams and Patriots? Some Chiefs fans might still believe Julian Edelman got a finger on a punt that skipped by him in the fourth quarter, but at best it was too close to call.

Zuerlein's 57-yard game victor obviously takes the cake, but he also hit a 48-yard field goal to send the game into overtime with 15 seconds left. They're already won five in that span, and Brady, 41, has collected four Super Bowl MVP awards.

Unfortunately, a lot of the talk after both games centered around missed/bad referee calls.

The same goes for plays like the phantom roughing-the-passer call that helped the Patriots defeat the Chiefs in the AFC title game last night.

Mahomes finished the game 16 of 31 for 295 yards and three touchdowns, but it was the plays he made on the run, when things had broken down, and on third down that are what made his first season so special. After the game, Sean Payton rightfully admitted the Saints may never be able to get over the officiating error. But the Rams are still using old Jeff Fisher tricks like passing out of punt formation (Bothell High School's Johnny Hekker, we salute you) and 57-yard field goals, and Sunday were beneficiaries of arguably the worst non-call in National Football League playoff history. It will be the third Super Bowl in Atlanta, and the first at the stadium, which opened in 2017.
