With 1:49 left in a 20-20 game, Drew Brees threw a pass to Tommylee Lewis up the right sideline, but the receiver was blasted out of bounds by Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman before the ball arrived.
Everyone — including the Rams — knew it should’ve been pass interference. The Saints should’ve been set up with a first down at about the 6-yard line. It would’ve given them the chance to run out the majority of the remaining clock to set up a chip shot for Wil Lutz to win the game.
There is now talks of making Pass Interference a Reviewable Play
A high-ranking official with one NFL team confirmed that making pass interference reviewable will be considered, adding: “And there will be discussion on [replay] review of calls and non-calls.”
Saints coach Sean Payton — who was obviously irate about the missed call and immediately called the league office — is a member of the NFL Competition Committee.
