METAIRIE, La. (AP) — Saints owner Gayle Benson says she pledges to aggressively pursue changes in NFL policies that will promote more "fairness and integrity."

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

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A big comeback. A blown call. And, finally, a booming kick that sent the Los Angeles Rams to the Super Bowl.
After rallying from an early 13-0 deficit, the Rams stunned the New Orleans Saints with Greg Zuerlein's 57-yard field goal in overtime for a 26-23 victory in the NFC championship game Sunday — an outcome that might not have been possible without an egregious mistake by the officials in the closing minutes of regulation.
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Sean Payton was glassy-eyed, calm and shrugged his shoulders at times, seemingly resigned to New Orleans' bitter fate — as unfair as he thought it was.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The Saints have placed receiver Ted Ginn Jr. on their active roster, making him eligible to play when New Orleans hosts Pittsburgh on Sunday.

METAIRIE, La. (AP) — The New Orleans Saints have activated returner and receiver Tommylee Lewis from injured reserve.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The history of the New Orleans Saints now includes another memorable Atlanta Falcons punt in a Monday night game. This one won't be recalled as fondly as Steve Gleason's memorable block nearly 10 years to the day earlier.
