Is There an NFL Plot Against the Saints? [VIDEO]
KEEL's Greg Atoms talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about the controversy surrounding the New Orleans Saints playoff loss Sunday to the Minnesota Vikings.
Once again, a non-call on a pass play did the Saints in. An overtime pass from Vikings QB Kirk Cousins to Kyle Rudolph, a play in which Rudolph appeared to push off Saints defender PJ Williams, was ruled a game winning touchdown after officials both on and off the field declined to make a pass interference call against the Minnesota tight end.
It was another pass interference non-call in last season's playoff game against the Los Angeles Rams that doomed Who Dat Nation's Super Bowl hopes.
Atoms makes the case that, going back to the the Saints' "Bounty Gate" troubles, the NFL front office has made it a point the get back at Coach Sean Peyton's team at ecery opportunity, and the last two playoff games are evidence.
