Amazingly, there are apparently still NFL players who are unfamiliar with the league's overtime rules. According to Robert Klemko of Sports Illustrated, there were "several" Green Bay Packers players who expected a second overtime session after the first one against Minnesota on Sunday ended with the teams still tied.

After the teams both scored field goals in the extra period, the game ended in a 26-26 tie.

One might think that every player in the league would know the deal ever since Donovan McNabb infamously admitted in 2008 after a draw that he didn't know a game could end in a tie.

Maybe not.
