NEW ORLEANS (AP) — In the legal equivalent of a Hail Mary pass , two New Orleans Saints season ticket holders asked a judge on Tuesday to order the NFL commissioner to reverse the results of the NFC championship game that sent the Los Angeles Rams to the Super Bowl, or schedule a do-over.Their lawsuit, filed in state court, says Commissioner Roger Goodell should implement a league rule governing “extraordinarily unfair acts.” Remedies include reversal of a game’s result or the rescheduling of a game — in its entirety or from the point when the act occurred.At issue is the failure of officials to call interference or roughness penalties when a Rams player leveled a Saints receiver with a helmet-to-helmet hit at a crucial point in Sunday’s game. The NFL hasn’t yet responded. A hearing is tentatively set for Monday — six days before the Rams meet the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl in Atlanta.“Why is the rule there if it’s not going to be implemented?” asked attorney Frank D’Amico, who filed the suit in state Civil District Court in New Orleans on behalf of Tommy Badeaux and Candis Lambert.No penalty was called after the Rams’ Nickell Robey-Coleman hit Saints receiver Tommylee Lewis while a pass was in the air with less than two minutes to go in regulation on Sunday. A flag would have meant a first down for the Saints, who could have run down the clock and won the game with a field goal. Instead, the Saints kicked a go-ahead field goal with 1:41 left. The Rams came back to tie with a field goal before winning in overtime.There appears to be no dispute that a penalty should have been called. Robey-Coleman later said he expected a flag. Saints coach Sean Payton said the NFL office acknowledged the error to him after the game.The question is whether an officiating mistake — even an egregious one — is the type of “club action, non-participant interference Drew Brees Jersey White , or calamity” that merits the remedy D’Amico’s clients seek.Mike Pereira is among the doubters.“I understand the frustration,” the former vice president of officiating for the NFL, now a Fox Sports analyst, said in an interview. But, he doesn’t believe the rule applies in this case. The New Orleans Saints won their first game without Drew Brees as their starting quarterback since November 21, 2005 last Sunday with a 33-27 road victory over the Seattle Seahawks. The Saints gained a total of just 265 yards in the game, but made key plays when it counted and controlled the ball well after special teams and defensive touchdowns sparked a 20-7 halftime lead. New Orleans will likely be without Brees for at least five or six more games, so the offense will be expected to continue to manufacture points in different ways. The 2-1 Saints now host the 3-0 Dallas Cowboys this Sunday Marcus Davenport Jersey White , a team that contained their offense and held them to only 10 points last season with Brees in the lineup. With Teddy Bridgewater again under center for the New Orleans offense, let's see how they match up against a Dallas defense that's given up just five touchdowns so far.

Bridgewater played a solid and mistake-free game against Seattle, completing 19 of 27 throws for 177 yards with 2 touchdown passes and no interceptions. The 26-yr. old signal caller didn't throw a pass over fifteen yards, but smartly took what the defense gave him underneath. He was particularly effective on drives to end the first half and beginning of the third quarter. Bridgewater was 11-14 for 116 yards and two touchdowns on those 2 drives, extending his team's lead to 27-7. The Saints leading receiver on the year is of course Michael Thomas, who has 25 catches for 266 yards and a score so far. Thomas caught five balls for 54 yards and that touchdown against Seattle, but did not have his first reception until the final drive of the first half. Running back Alvin Kamara, as expected Womens Marcus Davenport Jersey , was heavily involved in the passing game against the Seahawks, and finished with 9 receptions for 92 yards and a touchdown. Kamara, arguablythe best receiving back in the league, has caught 17 passes for 179 yards and a score thus far this season. Wideout Tre'Quan Smith may miss his second straight game with an ankle injury, but the Saints must get both tight end Jared Cook and receiver Ted Ginn Jr. more involved in the offense. Bridgewater may need to step out of his comfort zone to take downfield shots to Ginn, who has only two catches in the last two games after 7 receptions for 101 yards in the season opener. Cook, arguably the offense's biggest early season disappointment, has 3 drops and has caught only five of his 12 targets for 69 yards. Bridgewater did a nice job moving around the pocket against the Seahawks Tre'Quan Smith Jersey White , but he was the beneficiary of great protection. Saints tackles Ryan Ramczyk and Terron Armstead did an outstanding job of eliminating the Seattle edge rush, while rookie center Erik McCoy keyed an interior effort that prevented inside pressure. The offensive line will have to repeat that performance against a Dallas rush that had alot of success against them last year, a game Armstead missed with injury.

Similar numbers to last year, but they have had sizable leads in each of their three games, forcing opponents to throw more often. Despite increased passing attempts, only five teams have less then the five sacks the Cowboys have accumulated so far, 3 of which came against the Dolphins last week. Dallas does have a disruptive edge Womens Alvin Kamara Jersey , with Demarcus Lawrence and Robert Quinn (combined 2.5 sacks this season), but may be without end Tyrone Crawford with a hip injury for the second consecutive game. Lawrence and Quinn are both capable of harassing quarterbacks into mistakes, and are even more effective when tackles Christian Covington, Kerry Hyder,and Maliek Collins provide inside push. Linebackers Jaylon Smith (a very good blitzer) and Leighton Vander Esch are two of the most athletic 'backers in the league, and are capable of staying with any back or tight end in coverage. The Cowboys secondary is a very physical crew, but the knock on them is the lack of turnovers they create. Dallas has yet to record an interception in 2019 after picking off just nine passes last year. Cornerback and New Orleans can win the physical battles both up front and at the second level of the Dallas defense.
