Referees may have cost Saints and Chiefs their Super Bowl destinies

Referees may have cost Saints and Chiefs their Super Bowl destinies

Then, on second-and-goal from the two-yard line, Patriots' running back Rex Burkhead ran it up the middle for a game-winning touchdown, which sent the Patriots to the Super Bowl for the third-straight year and the ninth time since 2001.

The NFL may be considering adjusting its rules in response to a blown call in Sunday's NFC Championship game that likely cost the New Orleans Saints a Super Bowl berth. He had no issue with it. "I was sorry." He finished with four carries, three targets, 13 total yards and a score. Anderson ran for 44 yards on 16 carries, so it's not as if he shredded the Rams.

The two teams advanced on a thrilling Sunday of championship games, both of which went to overtime. Los Angles won in overtime on a 57-yard field goal.

Rams nickel cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman blasted Saints wide receiver Tommylee Lewis and admitted after the game he wasn't concerned about the penalty - he thought is was a certainty - but was focused exclusively on not allowing a game-ending touchdown.

Said coach Sean McVay: "Jared's mental toughness was a big part of us being able to win that today". The penalty gave the Patriots 15 yards and a first down instead of what would've been third-and-7. Stop them from getting the game-tying field goal!

Social media accounts for both schools lauded their National Football League alumni following the championship games Sunday. The game has already become used to the time stoppages; there's no going back, just forward, for a little justice.

Rams supporters have some outs - "Stop them in overtime!" The team moved to St. Louis in 1995, only to return to L.A. two decades later. But Goff wasn't really using that as an excuse, noting that he wouldn't have said anything to the media about the communication issues had the Rams lost. Some Chiefs fans might still believe Julian Edelman got a finger on a punt that skipped by him in the fourth quarter, but at best it was too close to call.
