The Rams beat the Saints 26–23 on a 57-yard field goal in overtime in Sunday's NFC Championship. Greg Zuerlein made the kick for Los Angeles to send the team to Super Bowl LIII.

The Rams never led in the game until the end. In the final minutes, the game was tied 20–20 as the Saints led a drive downfield. On a third-and-10 situation with the Saints on the Rams 13-yard line, quarterback Drew Brees threw an incomplete pass to Tommy Lee Lewis. But the Rams’ Nickell Robey-Coleman appeared to interfere. The Saints then settled for a field goal to make the score 23–20 and Los Angeles had one last drive attempt.

Los Angeles sent the game to overtime after making a field goal in the last 15 seconds. Brees threw an intereption in overtime to give the Rams back the ball to set up the Zuerlein kick.

The wild ending, including a controversial no-pass interference call, sent Twitter into a frenzy.

The Rams will next face the winner of the AFC Championship between the Chiefs and Patriots.
