Yes that’s true. But the Saints would have run the game clock down easily and hence they would have passed with out the need for an OT. The Saints did blow the game in OT. But it has been debated and is generally accepted that with that missed PI call, the game would have not needed OT. Also, one can easily argue the best team won when the game was mediocre at best. Furthermore, after such blatant favorable calls for the Pats in the Chief’s game. All in all, we got what Goodell wanted for a Super Bowl. That said, the end result is we got a boring and mediocre game as teams not meant for it were given the chance.
