Twitter Goes Ham Over Missed Pass Interference Call Late In Rams-Saints Game

With the game tied at 20 and less than 2 minutes remaining, the Saints were driving deep in Rams territory, with a chance to kill the clock and attempt a potential game-winning field goal.

On a third down play, Drew Brees threw a pass to Tommylee Lewis, only Lewis was hit by Rams’ corner Nickell Robey-Coleman way too early. Unbelievably, there was no flag on the play.

The missed call would set up the following sequence: the Saints were forced to kick a field goal, which they made. Up 3 with over a minute left to play, Jared Goff drove the Rams down the field for a game tying field goal as the clock expired.

The rest was history as Brees threw an interception on the first drive of OT, giving the Rams the chance to kick a game-winning field goal.

But twitter users, NFL players, NFL fans from around the world were absolutely egregious about the missed call.
