For the second week in a row, the Broncos got away with one, and this time, it bite the Saints big time. Don’t think it won’t go unnoticed, as Saints coach Sean Payton is filing a complaint to the league about a critical no-call late in Sunday’s loss to Denver. Payton says (and is right) that Broncos linebacker Jamie Winborn was lined up offside on a third-and-short play that preceded the missed field goal by Saints kicker Martin Gramatica late in the game.
Ref Ron Winter totally missed the call, and if he would have called Winborn offside like he should have, the Saints would have had a first down inside the Broncos 20. Last week the Broncos got a win due to a no-call on what was a Jay Cutler fumble, and this week it seems like once again those wearing the stripes were on the side of those in the Mile High City.
