With the game tied at 20 and less than 2 minutes remaining, the Saints were driving deep in Rams territory, with a chance to kill the clock and attempt a potential game-winning field goal.
On a third down play, Drew Brees threw a pass to Tommylee Lewis, only Lewis was hit by Rams’ corner Nickell Robey-Coleman way too early. Unbelievably, there was no flag on the play.

The missed call would set up the following sequence: the Saints were forced to kick a field goal, which they made. Up 3 with over a minute left to play, Jared Goff drove the Rams down the field for a game tying field goal as the clock expired.
The rest was history as Brees threw an interception on the first drive of OT, giving the Rams the chance to kick a game-winning field goal.
But twitter users, NFL players, NFL fans from around the world were absolutely egregious about the missed call.
Bro what was that lmao

Not only was that pass interference, the DB could have had a pick 6 if he would have played sound coverage looking for the ball.

I'm as big a Rams fan you will find and that is one of the worst no-calls I've ever seen. Abhorrently bad.
