It's also the case that the team with home field is almost always the team that posted a better regular season record, and so simply the better team (most of the time, anyway - records aren't a perfect determiner of team quality). I'm guessing there's been a time or two when a wild-card team with a better record played a conference championship game on the road against a division winner with a poorer record, but I can't recall any specific examples.

At least, this is the case since the mid-1970s. Before that, home field was by a pre-determined rotation, which is why the 14-0 Dolphins had to go on the road to beat the 11-3 Steelers in the AFC game that year.

That touchdown drive by Los Angeles with 23 seconds left is huge for the Rams. The Saints defense held tough, allowing the Rams just 94 yards total offense until the drive started. Before that drive started, the Rams were sitting at 0-5 for third down conversions.ADD- Another stat that is worth noting is that the Saints only had 13 yards rushing for the half. It's been all Drew and his arm.

Rams get the ball at the start of the 3rd quarter as they won the coin toss and deferred.

LA can do this thing man. Goff can shootout with the best of them.

Coleman's hit on the New Orleans Saints wide receiver Tommy Lewis in the end zone is going to be replayed-and replayed-and replayed. As clear a penalty of pass interference as one could have. 1:41 left in the game--ball on the 3 yard line. Right now I'm watching Sean Payton going bonkers on the side judge 3 plays later. Gawd, this is not good.

Dirty rotten officials again. That should have been a huge penalty.

One of the biggest miscalls ever, wonder if the league just wants a LA team in the big game.

Hey man, stuff happens. Saints fans can still come to Atlanta and watch with us Falcon's supporters.

I really didnít care who won this game, until that bad no call. Then I did not want LA to win. Now, this SB will have a cloud over it, especially if LA goes on to win.

That was two blown pass interference calls that should have gone against the Rams. Once again refs determine the game.
