NFL Admits Blown Call To Sean Payton After NFC Championship Game

What a tough loss for the New Orleans Saints!

In a late drive during the NFC Championship Game, Saints wide receiver Tommylee Lewis was clearly interfered with during a pass play, along with helmet to helmet contact, but was a no call by the NFL officials.

In the end, the Los Angeles Rams used that blown call, and a late Drew Brees interception,  along with a field goal in overtime earning their spot in Super Bowl LIII.  Let’s use the term ‘earning’ loosely!

During the postgame press conference, head coach Sean Payton was on the phone with the NFL, who admitted the officials were wrong.

“We’ll probably never get over it,” Payton said.

There were many reactions on Twitter following the game too!

It’s still so hard to say ‘Wait till next year!’
