Damn Bears kicker made it but time called before the snap 10 seconds left. Hits the up right & cross bar - Philly wins

I still consider myself a Bears fan although I’m not nearly as diehard about them as I used to be.  Yesterday stung harder than I expected.  Sometimes it seems as if sports were invented just to disappoint me personally. :'(

Try following Cleveland Teams thru the years - even the Cubs century of bad luck ended against us

Patrick Mahomes is the first Big XII quarterback to win a playoff game, since the Big XII became a thing in 1996.

That's insane that it took 22 years for a QB from that pass happy conference to have a single postseason win.

For comparison, during that same time: the Pac 12 has had 14 QBs combine for 63 wins; the Big Ten has had 5 QBs combine for 48 wins; the SEC has had 7 combine for 30; the ACC has had 5 combine for 8.  Even Conference USA, the MAC, the Mountain West; and the FCS CAA and Big West have had multiple QBs win postseason games.

Mmm.  Big pass play from Brees to Ginn puts the Saints in great position at the 2:00 warning.  I thought #20 (Joyner) had a great chance at a pick or at least to break it up.  He made a really poor play on the ball.

And now a big no call on a clear PI keeps the Rams alive.

never saw an angle to see if the ball was past the WR when contact was made

Really?  I thought the angle they kept showing from directly behind the WR clearly showed contact before the ball got there.

That DB no.23 for LA got away with Interference at the beginning of the 4th QTR.NFL has got to make some rule changes.Not saying NO would have won but the right call allows LA to run out of time.That referee FOX has on hand said he could have been called for going high also

The pass was still well on it’s way when the DB blew up the Saints WR. A hugely blown call by multiple officials from multiple viewpoints. This is the badly blown kind of call where people start asking “is the NFL fixed?”

Fixed?  It was a shit call, that benefitted a no name QB in a city with no fan base.  I'm guessing Goodell would have rather had Brees in the Super Bowl, so fixed?  No

I have no idea if Edelman touched that ball.  They can’t overturn that.

Is there ever a circumstance when a key bad call late in the game can’t be attributed to game fixing?  Do the refs ever just legitimately make mistakes late in games?

There just isn’t enough to overturn that, imo.

I don't believe that's a touch but how could anyone guarantee the opposite on review and overturn it? So it's the wrong call but is acceptable and will stand

Shocker, NFL helping the Pats again.  I'm sure they'll delete the tape again too
