The Saints were once again robbed on a crucial pass interference call late in a crucial game, except this time replay couldn’t have helped them out.
Late in Sunday’s game against the 49ers, Saints coach Sean Payton called a fake punt.
According to NFL rules, pass interference cannot be called on a punt play.
Which is beyond silly considering that it’s no longer a punt play when the punt is faked and a forward pass is attempted.
Nonetheless, NFL rules treat the punt entirely differently and as a result, the Saints got screwed, again.
