INSIDE THE NFL
January 29, 2019  | By David Bianculli

Showtime, 9:00 p.m. ET

 

This Sunday, the New England Patriots face the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LIII. Tonight, the players and analysts at Inside the NFL preview the game – and spend a lot of time, surely, on the already infamous non-call in the fourth quarter of the Rams’ NFC championship game against the New Orleans Saints. Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman dove into Saints receiver Tommylee Lewis near the end of regulation play, while Lewis was in the end zone awaiting what would have been a go-ahead touchdown reception – had he not both been plowed down while the ball was in the air, a clear case of pass interference. The furor over the penalty that wasn’t called will not change the lineup in the Super Bowl Sunday. It may, however, lead to a change in NFL rules, allowing for penalties, and non-penalties, to be enforced differently.
