This is going to be one of those weird seasons. For the second consecutive week, the NFL had a game end in a tie.
In a game that already saw the refs steal a win from the Green Bay Packers on an awful penalty, it all came down to Minnesota Vikings rookie kicker Daniel Carlson.
After missing two field goals earlier in the game, including one at the start of overtime, Minnesota set its rookie kicker up for a 35-yard field goal to win it. Instead, disaster struck for the Vikings once again.
After Carlson’s shocking miss, Twitter erupted to another disasterous performance by an NFL kicker, and the second tie in two weeks.
Game of the year so far ends in … a tie. Woof.

After that joke of a call on Matthews, the Packers deserved at minimum a tie. Luckily, Ray Finkle kicks for the Vikings.

If we don’t have a tie every week this season, what’s the point of even playing?
