The New Orleans Saints may have walked away with a win on Sunday, but Sean Payton was not happy.
The Saints head coach took a shot at officials over a pass interference review at the end of Sunday’s win over the Carolina Panthers that went against his New Orleans Saints.
The Saints and Panthers were tied at 31 late, with Carolina having the ball with a 3rd-and-goal from the five. Panthers challenged a play in hopes of getting an incompletion overturned to a pass interference.
We’ve seen worse plays not get overturned, yet the refs came back to do just that and gave the Panthers a fresh set of downs.
Panthers kicker Joey Slye would go on to miss a chip shot and the Saints drove and kicked a field goal to win it 34-31.
After the game, Payton let the refs know he was upset.
The New York part is in direct reference to the NFL’s replay center in New York, where challenges are reviewed.
It’s just kind of messed up that the league overturned a pass interference call in New Orleans when they couldn’t even get a PI call during the playoffs last year that cost them a chance at advancing to the Super Bowl.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
