New Orleans Saints fans aren't going down without a fight after their team lost to the Los Angeles Rams in Sunday's NFC Championship Game.

Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman ran into Saints wide receiver Tommylee Lewis before the ball was thrown to him with under two minutes remaining in the fourth quarter and the game tied at 20 apiece, but no penalty was called.

If pass interference was called, the Saints would've been able to run the clock down for what would have been a game-winning field-goal attempt. Instead, the contest eventually went to overtime and the Rams won on a 57-yard field goal.

A fan named Terry Cassreino addressed a change.org petition to Roger Goodell in the slim hopes of staging a rematch.

"Refs missed a blatant pass interference call against the Los Angeles Rams late in fourth quarter of Jan. 20 NFC Championship Game, possibly costing New Orleans Saints a trip to the Super Bowl. Due to refs' inability to properly officiate at the game, we the undersigned want a rematch against L.A. on Sunday, Jan. 27. It's the only fair solution to this travesty of epic proportions," Cassreino wrote.

Over 250,000 people have signed the petition as of Monday afternoon, but the Super Bowl will go on as planned, between the Rams and New England Patriots.
