Whether they studied game tactics with Donovan McNabb or just slept through the rookie symposium, reports are coming from the Green Bay-Minnesota game this afternoon that many Packers players thought that there would be a second overtime, and that NFL games couldn’t end in a tie. Of course the game ended after one OT, 26-26. As per NFL rules, which players are paid big money to know.
This is nothing new but still hard to believe: I heard multiple Packers admit they expected a second overtime, didn't know they could tie.

One of the Packers who didn't know OT rules was starting TE Andrew Quarless: "I thought we was gonna go to another overtime. I never knew."

First time points scored on OT, yet game ends in a tie. Packers/Vikings first team to tie after OT under modified OT rules.

Guys, it’s not like the terms of service agreement when you purchase new software off the Internet: you actually have to read the NFL rules. It’s your job.
