Judge dismisses fans' request to replay NFC championship game after missed call
- New Orleans fans had filed suit over team’s loss to LA Rams
- Sunday’s Super Bowl will be between Rams and Patriots
A federal judge has refused to order the NFL to replay the NFC Championship game, in which the Los Angeles Rams defeated the New Orleans Saints and gained entry to the Super Bowl after a critical missed call by officials.
Judge Susie Morgan said the Saints season-ticket holders who sued had no right to compel the NFL to enforce league rules that could reverse the game’s outcome or force a replay. Morgan ruled on an expedited basis, as the Rams will play the New England Patriots in Sunday’s Super Bowl.
