Officiating helps determine Super Bowl teams

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The last thing the NFL would ever want is for an officiating mistake to decide the Super Bowl.

On Sunday, the league might have gotten enough errors to determine both teams that will play in the championship game in two weeks.

The most egregious gaffe came in the NFC title game in New Orleans. The Saints were in position to put away the Rams when Tommylee Lewis blatantly was interfered with inside the Los Angeles 5-yard line by cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman. Not only did Robey-Coleman hit Lewis early, he did so helmet to helmet. Next weekend, we'll hear about Robey-Coleman being fined for the collision - even though, incredibly, no flag was thrown.
