The Missed Pass Interference In The 2018 NFC Championship
What happened in the 2018-2019 NFC Championship game between the New Orleans Saints and Los Angeles Rams would be the proverbial “Exhibit A” for any irate football fan who wonders what the heck referees are actually doing or seeing on the field. With less than two minutes remaining in the 4th quarter, and the game tied at 20, New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees lofted a pass towards receiver Tommy Lee Lewis.
Had Lewis caught the ball, he would’ve been inside the five yard line of Los Angeles. But Rams’ safety Nickell Robey-Coleman totally wiped Lewis out from the play, with no regard to the incoming pass. The referees shockingly missed the blatant pass interference on the play, and the Rams would go on to win the game and advance to the Super Bowl.
