We're tied! Let's just quit.

Week 10 in the NFL saw something that it hasn't seen since 2008. A tie. Yes a tie.  The San Francisco 49ers and the St. Luis Rams went into overtime tied.  They played a whole 15 minute quarter and tied.
A tie to most athletes is like a loss, when in reallity it messes up the standings.  This will become more evident at the end of the season when a team that wasn't involved in the tie misses the playoffs.  This happened back in 2008.  The NFL really needs to change this rule and let them finish the game.  Billy Bob Thorton said it best in the remake of the Bad News Bears, "A tie is like kissing your sister", and nobody wants to do that.  The NFL won't even think about changing the tie rule until it neggatively affects one of its babbied high profile franchises like the Cowboys or the Patriots.
