Following the Los Angeles Rams' big win over the New Orleans Saints in the NFC Championship Game, Rams cornerback Marcus Peters started a little bit of trouble.

After the game was over, Peters was seen running across the field to Saints head coach Sean Payton.

The Saints players responded by confronting Peters, starting a scrum that required multiple people to break up.

The Rams were reasonably excited after pulling up an upset that sent them to their first Super Bowl since Kurt Warner led them there in 2001.

They did get a little bit of help along their way though.

A very controversial call non-flag on a Rams defender in the fourth quarter held the Saints to a field goal on their final offensive drive.

Led by quarterback Jared Goff, the Rams tied the game on their ensuing drive, forcing the game into overtime.

In overtime, the Rams managed to pick off Saints quarterback Drew Brees, and on their first possession, set up Greg Zuerlein for a 57-yard game-winning field goal.

The Rams will be taking on either the New England Patriots or the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl. The Chiefs and the Patriots are playing on CBS.
