But Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman appeared to interfere.

New Orleans Saints tight end Ben Watson is calling on Commissioner Roger Goodell to address the blown call in the NFC Championship Game that cost his team a good shot at reaching the Super Bowl. On a third-and-10 situation, quarterback Drew Brees threw an incomplete pass to wide receiver Tommylee Lewis.

The Rams then drove 45 yards and kicked a game-tying field goal to send the game to overtime, where they won to punch a ticket to Super Bowl LIII. Robey-Coleman was infamously not penalized for either defensive pass interference or a helmet-to-helmet hit on the crucial play late in the title game.

That play indeed changed the game, forcing New Orleans to hit a field goal instead of scoring a potential touchdown.

"I don't think there's anything short of replaying the game that would make New Orleans Saints fans happy", said David Haydel, one of the bakery owners.

Barty had said she was "all good" and had no concerns following her third-round win over Maria Sakkari on Friday. "Thank you guys. Kvitova will start this match as the favourite to win - this is a given. "Looking forward to the next match".

"The Commissioner has the sole authority to investigate and take appropriate disciplinary and/or corrective measures if any club action, non-participant interference, or calamity occurs in an NFL game which the Commissioner deems so extraordinarily unfair or outside the accepted tactics encountered in professional football that such action has a major effect on the result of the game".

Los Angeles Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman has been fined $26,739 by the National Football League for a helmet-to-helmet hit on New Orleans Saints wide receiver Tommylee Lewis that was not flagged during the NFC Championship Game, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter on Friday.

This probably won't sit well with fans of the New Orleans Saints, especially due to all the legal issues taking place over this matter.

One Saints fan went as far as paying for a series of billboards in Atlanta, where the Super Bowl is being played, to display his frustration with the loss. We did enough to put ourselves in a position to win this game.
