NFL games going into overtime aren’t exactly common. Yes, they do happen but not all that frequently (despite it happening twice in Week 12).
That’s likely why so many players continually fail to understand the rules of overtime, despite how shocking it might be to fans.
It happened again on Sunday when some Green Bay Packers players admitted that they thought their game against the Minnesota Vikings would roll over into a second overtime.
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.
A handful of the Packers players who admitted to not knowing the rules went unnamed though tight end Andrew Quarless was thrown under the bus, suggesting he thought the game would just continue:
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.”
The Vikings and Packers tied at 26-26.
