Patriots, Rams to play in Super Bowl LIII

Rams vs. Patriots Super Bowl LIII: Who Is Going to the Super Bowl? Jared Goff's in-the-huddle speech that got the Rams rolling...

Tempers flared during today's NFC championship game between the New Orleans Saints and Los Angeles Rams at the Super Dome after a controversial non-call on a potential pass interference penalty and head-to-head hit by L.A. defensive back Nickell Robey-Coleman, who slammed into Saints pass receiver Tommylee Lewis on a crucial third-down play.

After winning the coin toss and electing to receive the ball to start overtime, New England went to work on their game-winning drive.

The Rams began to find their footing and slowly crept back into the game.

The Superdome, which had been in uproar all afternoon, suddenly turned eerily silent.

"Just got off the phone with the league office", Saints coach Sean Payton said.

A high-ranking official with one National Football League team confirmed that making pass interference reviewable will be considered, adding: "And there will be discussion on [replay] review of calls and non-calls". While in St. Louis, the Rams won the Super Bowl against the Tennessee Titans in 2000.

"Ah, hell yeah, that was [pass interference]", a smiling Robey-Coleman said when he watched a video of the play after the game.

After the Saints took an early 13-0 lead in the first, the Rams cut the deficit to just three before halftime.

Rams fans would point out that the referees also missed calls on their behalf, such as a blatant face-mask against Los Angeles quarterback Jared Goff. Instead, the Saints were forced to settle for Wil Lutz's 31-yard field goal that made it 23-20 with 1:41 left in regulation.

Zuerlein tied the score at 20-all with a 24-yard field goal after McVay passed on a shot at the go-ahead touchdown with fourth-and-goal from inside the 1.

"I plan on being here next year and making another run at it", Brees said, via Luke Johnson of the New Orleans Times-Picayune. "But I plan on being here next year and making another run at it".

He hopes another gut-wrenching loss in the playoffs will spur the team to even greater heights. Both teams had opportunities they took advantage of, and both had opportunities either squandered or thwarted by their opponent.

An egregious mistake by the refs overshadowed the Los Angeles Rams' moment of triumph. Williams scored his second touchdown of the quarter with 7:45 remaining on a 23-yard passing play to give the Chiefs their first lead of the night, 21-17.
