Attorney Files Lawsuit to Have Ending of Rams/Saints Replayed

Frank D'Amico Jr. filed the suit with the Civil District Court of Orleans Parish on behalf of Saints season-ticket holders, saying NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has the power to put time back on the clock and allow the game to resume.

Connick sent the letter after the controversial officiating during Sunday's NFC Championship game between the L.A. Rams and the New Orleans Saints that sent the Rams to the Super Bowl and the Saints to the locker room.

Shortly after the Los Angeles Rams celebrated punching their ticket to Super Bowl LIII largely due to a series of terrible non-calls, a New Orleans area reporter revealed that one of the referees who officiated the game actually used to play for the Rams! Of course, the controversy is over the non-pass interference call late in the fourth quarter. That was good from about 70. They have played in three previous Super Bowls, beating the Tennessee Titans 23-16 in Atlanta in 2000 when they were the St. Louis Rams. In doing so, Pereira made it abundantly clear that the atmosphere in the league office won't be a positive one following the obvious blown call.

If the penalty had been called, the Saints would likely have won the game. Next up is a date on February 3 in Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium to face the seemingly unstoppable New England Patriots.

Kansas City, which fell 37-31 in overtime to New England on Sunday night, will pick 29th due to overall regular-season record.

Gurley rushed for 10 yards and a touchdown in four carries and caught one pass for 3 yards in the Rams' 26-23 overtime victory.

After the game the National Football League confirmed in a call to Payton that referees made the wrong call, according to USA Today.

According to the Washington Post, the NFL's competition committee will consider altering is instant replay review rules so that pass interference calls could potentially be overturned.

It's been two days since the no-call in the Rams-Saints game, and it feels worse than ever.

He hopes another gut-wrenching loss in the playoffs will spur the team to even greater heights.
