Saints fans are upset over a missed call in the NFC championship game that they’re certain cost their team a ticket to the Super Bowl. Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman committed a blatant pass interference penalty that wasn’t called, leading to a tie score in regulation play and an overtime loss for the Saints.
Saints coach Sean Payton talked to the NFL office after the game and was told a penalty should have been called.
