WATCH: Tyler Higbee shushed Saints fans after TD

Tyler Higbee came through big late in the third quarter of the NFC Championship Game between the Los Angeles Rams and New Orleans Saints.

Catching a one-yard touchdown pass from the right arm of Jared Goff, Higbee pulled the Rams to within three points, 20-17.

The play itself was beautifully designed by Sean McVay. Off play-action, Higbee was wide open in the front right of the end zone. After making the catch, he shushed the pro-Saints crowd at the Superdome.

A game that started out being all Saints, all the time, has swiftly evolved into a compelling contest in which it’s anyone’s game.
