All tied up at 23-23 in overtime, the New Orleans Saints had the ball and were driving downfield when Drew Brees threw an interception to John Johnson III.

Brees was hit by Dante Fowler Jr. on the play.

His pass was significantly altered. Johnson was literally falling down as he made the play.

This gave the Rams the ball near midfield with a chance to win the game on any score.
