Rams Advance to Super Bowl With Overtime Victory Over Saints

The Rams Got Away With A Blatant Pass Interference Against The Saints Officials Miss Blatant Pass-Interference Penalty, Possibly Costing Saints The Game

New Orleans won the coin toss and got the ball first in overtime. Instead, they settled for a field goal with 1:41 remaining, the Rams responded with a game-tying field goal of their own and the Saints ultimately lost in overtime. "The defence played the way they did to force it to overtime".

The missed call has drawn up many complaints from Saints players, to fans online, to former head coaches, and from players on other teams.

A trip to the Super Bowl in just their third season back home is an awfully good way to send that process into warp speed. Getting to the Super Bowl is incredibly hard to do and takes such an unbelievable commitment from a team and support from its fans.

Giuliani's media blitz draws ire of Trump and some allies
Trump said in November that he saw nothing wrong with running for president and pursuing a business deal simultaneously. Trump's lead counsel, Rudy Giuliani , certainly wants to portray it this way.

Now, the Rams have a very similar high-powered offense under Sean McVay.

It was the first interception for Goff in 123 pass attempts, and the Rams' first turnover in 211 snaps, spanning three games. He engineered couple of touchdown drives, and he put the Rams in the red zone to help them get much-needed field goals. A team that you would look at and laugh at the roster most years has not found a way to turn it around completely in two years and have made the Super Bowl. It's easy to make a case that he outplayed Brees in the second half.

Then a fake punt early in the second quarter gave Los Angeles its initial first down of the game. The 37-year-old Whitworth, a versatile blocker and locker-room leader, has been a major key to the Rams' offensive success over the past two years. They will not be able to establish the run game against the Patriots, which is critical.

McVay on Monday reiterated his claim that Gurley is fully healthy even though the running back missed the Rams' final two regular-season games with an injured knee. One week after getting his first career playoff victory, he'll try to reach his first Super Bowl. I have been in touch with the National Football League regarding yesterday's events and will aggressively pursue changes in National Football League policies to ensure no team and fan base is ever put in a similar position again.
