Louisiana eye doctor offers free exams for officials after Saints loss

Louisiana eye doctor offers free exams for officials after Saints loss

For all the constant whining Los Angeles Rams fans did about Bill Vinovich officiating in Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the New Orleans Saints, his crew helped them advance to Super Bowl LIII.

So in case football isn't your thing, the New England Patriots also clinched another Super Bowl berth with a 37-31 win over the Kansas City Chiefs in overtime of the AFC championship game.

Goodell could tell the Rams "sorry" and send the Saints to the Super Bowl, or he could make them play the NFC Championship Game again.

The ending of the game has already led to gambling sites refunding money to bettors who lost out after betting on the Saints. When the group convenes in late March for the Annual League Meeting, there is expected to be a discussion regarding opening up instant replay to pass interference and other judgment calls or no-calls.


New Orleans won the coin toss and got the ball first in overtime.

The Los Angeles Rams had pulled into a tie with the Saints at 20-20 with 5:03 left to play in the game. "I got away with one tonight". Saints quarterback Drew Brees threw for 346 yards and four touchdowns.

It was the first home playoff loss for the Saints with Brees and coach Sean Payton, who had been 6-0 at the Superdome since their pairing began in 2006.

McVay on Monday reiterated his claim that Gurley is fully healthy even though the running back missed the Rams' final two regular-season games with an injured knee.


The league's competition committee generally ramps up its discussions shortly after the Super Bowl and any proposal for a rule change is traditionally made prior to the March league meetings. "Because of this, I'm sure there will be a lot of talk about reviewing penalties, perhaps game-changing penalties". New Orleans got out to a 20-10 lead on their first possession of the third quarter, but Los Angeles responded with drive of their own, capped off by a Tyler Higbee one-yard touchdown reception from Jared Goff.

"But for a game as important as the NFC (National Football Conference) championship, it sickens me to know that the people who are assigned to fairly officiate the game seemingly had no regard for not only a unsafe penalty but one that would certainly have changed the outcome of the game, " he vented.

Until then, Benson, Saints players and sympathizers and fans worldwide are left to wonder: What if?

"Shoot, I don't even know what day it is", McVay said.
