A big comeback. A blown call. And New Orleans Saints Erik McCoy Jersey , finally, a booming kick that sent the Los Angeles Rams to the Super Bowl.After rallying from an early 13-0 deficit, the Rams stunned the New Orleans Saints with Greg Zuerlein‘s 57-yard field goal in overtime for a 26-23 victory in the NFC championship game Sunday 鈥?an outcome that might not have been possible without an egregious mistake by the officials in the closing minutes of regulation.Los Angeles cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman committed聽a blatant interference penalty聽with a helmet-to-helmet hit on Tommylee Lewis well before the pass arrived inside the 5, forcing the Saints to settle for Wil Lutz‘s 31-yard field goal that made it 23-20 with 1:41 left in regulation.“Came to the sideline, looked at the football gods and was like, ‘Thank you,'” Robey-Coleman said. “I got away with one tonight.”After the no-call, Jared Goff had enough time to lead the Rams down the field for Zuerlein’s tying field goal,聽a 48-yarder聽with 15 seconds remaining.New Orleans won the coin toss and got the ball first in overtime. But, with Dante Fowler Jr. in his face and striking his arm, Drew Brees fluttered up a pass that was picked off by John Johnson III, who was able to聽hang on to the interception聽while stumbling backward. Johnson hopped up and celebrated by doing with the “Choppa Style” dance popularized by New Orleans rapper Choppa, whose namesake song had become a Saints’ rallying cry and was even performed during the halftime show.The Rams weren’t able to do much offensively, but it didn’t matter. Zuerlein聽booted through the winning field goal聽from just inside midfield with plenty of room to spare. The NFL said it the longest game-winning kick in playoff history.“It’s unbelievable, man. I can’t put it into words,” said Goff, who at 24 became the youngest quarterback to win an NFC title. “The defense played the way they did to force it to overtime. The defense gets a pick and Greg makes a 57-yarder to win it. That was good from about 70. Unbelievable.”The Superdome, which had been in uproar all afternoon, suddenly turned eerily silent. It was the first home playoff loss for the Saints with Brees and coach Sean Payton, who and been 6-0 in those games since their pairing began in 2006.This one really hurt.If the pass interference penalty had been called, the Saints could’ve run most of the time off the clock to set up a winning field goal from chip-shot range.“Being that it happened right there in front of the person who would be the one to make the call, and everyone in the stands saw it, everyone watching at home on TV saw it Womens Erik McCoy 2019 Jersey , that makes it even more difficult to take,” Brees said. “Because of this, I’m sure there will be a lot of talk about reviewing penalties, perhaps game-changing penalties.”The Rams (15-3) and their 32-year-old coach, Sean McVay, capped聽a remarkable risesince moving back to Los Angeles three years ago. The team will be appearing in its first Super Bowl since the 2001 season, when the “Greatest Show on Turf” was still in St. Louis.The team hasn’t won an NFL title in Los Angeles since 1951, well before the Super Bowl era. The team moved to St. Louis in 1995, only to return to Southern California two decades later.“Shoot, I don’t even know what day it is,” McVay said. “All I know is we’re NFC champs, baby!”It was another bitter end for the Saints, who lost the previous season in the divisional round on the “Minnesota Miracle” 鈥?the Vikings’ long touchdown pass on the final play of the game.This time, New Orleans (14-4) couldn’t hang on to the lead or overcome that officiating mistake.Payton said he talked to the NFL office after the game and was told that Robey-Coleman should have been flagged.“Not only was it interference, it was helmet to helmet,” the coach said. “”I don’t know if there was ever a more obvious pass interference.”The Saints were on the verge of blowing out the Rams, scoring on their first three possessions and taking advantage of an interception when Todd Gurley let a pass slip through his hands.Then a fake punt early in the second quarter gave Los Angeles its initial first down of the game. Sparked by that gutsy call, the Rams finally came to life offensively and drove into position for the first of four field goals by Zuerlein.Gurley made it 13-10 at halftime on a 6-yard touchdown run just before the intermission.New Orleans restored its double-digit lead on Brees’ 2-yard scoring pass to third-string quarterback Taysom Hill, the first TD catch of the super sub’s career. Goff countered with a 1-yard touchdown toss to Tyler Higbee, setting up a wild fourth quarter.Zuerlein tied the score at 20-all with a 24-yard field goal after McVay passed on a shot at the go-ahead touchdown with fourth-and-goal from inside the 1. A delay of game while lining up for the kick scuttled any thoughts of leaving the offense on the field.BREES’ FUTUREThe 40-year-old Brees made it clear he’s got no plans to retire.“I plan on being here next year and making another run at it,” said Brees, who was denied a shot at adding to the Super Bowl title he won during the 2009 season.He hopes another gut-wrenching loss in the playoffs will spur the team to even greater heights.“Last year really brought us together as a team and strengthened us,” Brees said. “I hope this will too.”INJURY REPORTThe Saints lost tight end Josh Hill to a concussion in the first quarter.Hill was injured after hauling in a 24-yard pass from Brees. While making the tackle New Orleans Saints Erik McCoy Jersey , Los Angeles Rams linebacker Cory Littleton delivered a forearm to Hill’s head.No penalty was called, but Hill staggered off the field to be evaluated by the medical staff. Just before halftime, the Saints announced he was done for the game.The loss of Hill led to a much bigger role in the offense for Garrett Griffin, who spent most of the season on the practice squad. He caught a 5-yard pass for his first career touchdown.UP NEXTThe Rams head to Atlanta in about a week for the Feb. 3 Super Bowl at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. They will face either the Kansas City Chiefs or the New England Patriots, who met Sunday night for the AFC title. What a week for Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Norman.There was a benching during a 24-point loss. Criticism from a former teammate. Biting Twitter barbs from an opposing receiver.What better way to cap it all off than a matchup for his Redskins (2-2) on Sunday against Cam Newton and the visiting Carolina Panthers (3-1), the club that abruptly parted with Norman about 2陆 years ago."Old friends. They're coming to town, and I get to see them and go at each other. They know how I am. Trust me. I know how they are. So it's going to be quite an exciting time," Norman said. "I'm looking forward to them. I know (Newton's) got something special cooked up for us."Norman was coming off an All-Pro season and a Super Bowl appearance when the Panthers put the franchise tag on him in March 2016, a move many figured was a precursor to a long-term deal. Fast-forward six weeks, though, and Carolina rescinded the tag offer, allowing Norman to become an unrestricted free agent.Within a couple of days, he signed a $75 million, five-year contract with Washington. For whatever the reason 鈥?and there are various theories out there 鈥?things have not gone all that well for Norman, who turns 31 in December and is currently up to 19 games in a row without an interception.The downswing culminated in Washington coach Jay Gruden's decision to play a rookie instead of Norman coming out of halftime during a 43-19 loss at New Orleans on Monday night.Then came all sorts of theories about what might be wrong with Norman, from his age (courtesy of Saints receiver Michael Thomas) to his interest in becoming a celebrity (brought up by ex-Redskins defensive back DeAngelo Hall) to the shift from Carolina's zone coverage to Washington's man-to-man principles (referenced by Panthers coach Ron Rivera).Newton, a friend who participates in Norman's charity volleyball tournament, maintains that QBs still need to be wary of the guy."He's not a person who hesitates to take chances, and that's his gift and his curse," Newton said. "I still go into each and every game pointing out who the impact players are on every defense, and he's definitely one of those players."Here are some things to know about the Panthers and Redskins:COUNT ON CAMA Redskins defense that had zero answers against Drew Brees now goes up against Newton, who is having a so-so season thus far but always comes up big against Washington. The 2015 NFL MVP is 4-0 against the Redskins, with nine TDs and zero INTs Cheap Erik McCoy Youth Jersey , a passer of rating of 115.4 and two rushing scores. "Cam is a beast, man. He can do it all. He can pass. He can run it. He's an extra running back when he's back there," Redskins safety D.J. Swearinger said. "They've got a long list of good playmakers, man. So we've got our hands full."ROLL TIDEDefensive linemen Jonathan Allen and Daron Payne played together at Alabama, were first-round draft picks the past two years, and account for nearly half of Washington's sacks this season. "They are two guys that I never have to worry about: 'Hey, hustle. Hey, run to the ball.' These guys are always playing hard, playing fast, playing physical," Gruden said, "and you can build around those two cats for a long time."BAND IS BACKThe Panthers are hoping to get back three-time Pro Bowl tight end Greg Olsen; he broke his right foot in Week 1. "The band is back," Newton said with a big smile. The QB's favorite target for quite some time, Olsen strung together a trio of 1,000-yard seasons before initially injuring his foot in 2017 and missing nine games. If some wonder whether Olsen might be rushing back, he said: "I wouldn't put myself out there if I couldn't help the team."DAVIS RETURNS, TOOCarolina is counting on linebacker Thomas Davis, who returns from a four-game suspension under the league's policy on performance enhancers to give a big lift to a defense that struggled to pressure the quarterback last week. Davis is the team's all-time leading tackler and joins Luke Kuechly to provide what Gruden called "the best linebacking duo in pro football, in my opinion."AP Sports Writer Steve Reed contributed to this report.
