NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The Saints just missed out on a Super Bowl berth last season. So in 2019, the Black and Gold got prime billing by the schedule makers.

The Saints will appear in primetime on four occasions this upcoming season.

They will also travel to the L.A. Rams in week two for a much-anticipated rematch of the “NOLA no-call.”

When the teams last met, the referees blatantly missed pass interference call late in the fourth quarter of the Saints-Rams NFC Championship game.

Rams defender Nikell Robey-Coleman steamrolled Saints receiver Tommylee Lewis well before the pass arrived.

No penalty was called, and the Saints were forced to kick a field goal with enough time remaining for the Rams to tie the game. The NFL changed its replay rules during the offseason to help ensure a mistake like that would not happen again.
