For the next two weeks, all you will hear about is the great storylines of the February 3 Super Bowl LIII at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta that pits the New England Patriots against the Los Angeles Rams. That was good from about 70. That's how strong his leg is. With the clock winding down, they drove for a tying field goal.
In testimony before a U.S. House of Representatives committee on September 27, NFL Executive Vice President Jocelyn Moore asked Congress to let professional sports leagues and gambling regulators ban prop bets that involve the performance of individual athletes over the course of a game. Brees' long pass was deflected high into the air and into the arms of Rams safety John Johnson III at the Rams' 46.
An egregious mistake by the refs overshadowed the Los Angeles Rams' moment of triumph. Then there is the question of Bill Belichick's run for Don Shula's most career wins.
Mahomes, seeking to do in his second year what Russell Wilson did as a sophomore - reach and win a Super Bowl - was not allowed to fire in OT. Those teams, though, were based in St. Louis.
Sean Payton and the New Orleans Saints have heard from the National Football League, which admitted the officiating crew blew the call in the fourth quarter of Sunday's NFC Championship. That was all the points they'd get in the third quarter, but they would figure out some things defensively as they held the Patriots to just three points in that quarter.
Apparently not - but the Goff and the Rams' offense did have to overcome some significant adversity early on in the game. "This shrine here, we cannot take it down".
Trailing 13-0 after the first quarter, momentum flipped when McVay called a fake punt that worked. On the other hand, the Patriots ranked fourth in scoring (27.2), eighth in passing (266.1 yards per game) and fifth in rushing (127.3 yards per game).
The Saints offence, in contrast, came out of the halftime locker room on fire. But Goff wasn't really using that as an excuse, noting that he wouldn't have said anything to the media about the communication issues had the Rams lost.
"Ever since he came onto the scene back when I was younger, I've always just loved him", said Brown, 27.
"I thought it was a bang-bang type play".
It's the first time both conference title games went to overtime.
