That put the Rams in the Super Bowl for the first time since the "Greatest Show on Turf" teams played in two Super Bowls in three years, in 2000 and 2002. Because Los Angeles is a detestable community that has no soul and doesn't deserve to triumph?
According to NFL.com, Gurley's 13 total yards and five total touches were both career lows, as the Rams leaned on veteran backup CJ Anderson to carry the load in the backfield during their 26-23 overtime victory.
In a game marred by a late-game blown no-call of obvious defensive pass interference that, if flagged, might have won the game for the Saints, the other hero for the Rams was third-year quarterback Jared Goff. New Orleans scored a touchdown to take a 20-10 lead, but Goff led the offense right back down the field, capping it with a one-yard touchdown to Higbee.
Theresa May refuses to rule out ‘no-deal’ exit from EU
He said: "I think my solution to the Brexit blockage would be a Second Referendum with two options, No Deal or No Brexit". This week, the Labour leader refused to enter into talks with Mrs May unless she completely ruled out a no deal Brexit.
Just three seasons after moving back to Southern California from St. Louis, the Rams completed a remarkable rise to prominence, led by their 32-year-old wunderkind of a coach, Sean McVay, and the youngest QB ever to win an NFC title.
After the game, Payton said he spoke to the league and they admitted they blew they call.
Zuerlein earlier had hit field goals from 36 and 24 yards.
The controversial no-call came in the Saints' final drive in the fourth quarter. And yet, he won't shed the "California cool" demeanor - even when he's just played a big part in helping a team advance to one of the biggest stages in all of sports. Then they added a massive infusion of talent: receiver Brandin Cooks and cornerbacks Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib in offseason trades; Ndamukong Suh in free agency; pass rusher Fowler in an in-season trade. Unlike the CFL, however, pass interference isn't on the list of reviewable infractions so all Saints head coach Sean Payton could do was go all Jason Maas on the sideline.
