Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman controversially wasn't flagged for pass interference in the final two minutes of regulation.
Referees missed what appeared to be a blatant pass-interference call against Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman on Sunday, a critical play in Los Angeles' 26-23 victory over the Saints in the NFC Championship Game.
The missed call forced stalled a late drive by the Saints, forcing them to kick a field goal and giving the Rams time to even the score to force overtime. In overtime, Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein nailed a 57-yard field goal for the win after New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees threw an interception.
A slate of players and media members around the league chimed in on Twitter about the missed call.
