A couple of eye doctors have offered the NFL crew that officiated the Saints-Rams NFC championship game free eye exams after a botched pass-interference call at the end of the game.
The Saints lost 26-23 in overtime after referees didn’t call pass interference on Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman, who made illegal contact with Saints receiver Tommylee Lewis with less than two minutes left in the game.
New Orleans had to settle for a field goal and missed an opportunity to potentially run out the clock.
Louisiana Family Eyecare posted on Facebook that it would “gladly provide a no-cost exam to all NFL officials prior to next season to prevent the atrocity that occurred …”
Crystal Vision Center out of College Station, Texas, offered a similar deal, saying it “would like to extend free eye exams and glasses to any NFL referee in need.
“You know who you are.”
In light of the atrocious lack of calls during the New Orleans Saints game we would like to extend free eye exams and glasses to any NFL referee in need.
You know who you are.

If the referees had called a penalty, the Saints likely would have won the game and would be heading to Atlanta for Super Bowl 53.
