The championship games were great entertainment and proved to be some great fun for football fans as it is some of the last meaningful games until September. Even though the deserving teams seemed to have won what looms large is the calls that more or less decided the wins. The NFC Championship game between the Los Angeles Rams and the New Orleans Saints was called by Bill Vinovich and his staff while the AFC Championship game between the New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs was called by Clete Blakeman and his staff. Let’s examine some of the crucial missed calls.
The Los Angeles Rams will represent the NFC as they will advance to the Super Bowl following their 26-23 win over the New Orleans Saints. This being a rematch of the top two seeds in the NFC who had already met in Week 9. It was a great game full of momentum swings and amazing plays but was not without its share of controversy.
The Los Angeles Rams come off a run-heavy game where they decided to let C.J. Anderson and Todd Gurley take over for a 30-22 win against the Cowboys to get to the NFC Championship game. It wasn’t as easy for the New Orleans Saints, who had to rally from down fourteen against Nick Foles and the defending champion Philadelphia Eagles to eke out a win on a last-minute interception just to host this NFC Championship Game. This game will kick off championship weekend and will be played at 3:05 ET on FOX.
