RB Najee Harris after tying Lions: I didn't even know that you could tie in the NFL ...

The Steelers finished 16-16 in a very sloppy football game from Heinz Field. The Detroit Lions rookie named Najee Harris seemed prepared to take a step further to fight for a win, but was unaware that the NFL recognizes ties if nobody leads after overtime. The Steelers and Detroit Lions won 16-16 in an odd football game.

The Lions recovered the fumble and ran an ill-fated hook-and-ladder with their final snap, and that was that.

I've never had a tie before,' Harris said on the bench with a smile after the game. "I don't even know you could tie in the NFL," Harris said in the post. "I was sitting on the bench on a bench with a friend waiting for the game, but a friend came to me and said: "You have another quarter to go."

This tie ends the 0-17 talk and 12-game losing streak for the Lions (0-8-1), while the Steelers (5-3-1) dominates the AFC playoff race.

Despite the fact that the rookie ran back was shocked by the result, many people who knew what was coming struggled to explain what had just happened too. Lions coach Dan Campbell said that he was in this twilight zone, unsure how to feel.

And I didn't know what it was because I didn't remember for sure, whether it wasn't, or it was, that I knew, or that I would know my own best-educated player, so I really know I had already been in the tidal and moaned that way they wrangled. They were better than we were two weeks ago, and now we had to improve from this week and find a way to beat Cleveland next week.

Jared Goff added that he thought this was the first tie of his career, but it was also the first he got into his career.

The first tie with my remembering is with me, Goff said. I am not feeling well, but I am not being right. Feels better than losing it, but still not where we need to be.

Since 1955, the Lions have the right to go to Pittsburgh to end their winning streak in the league. Detroit has lost its last nine trips to the Steel City, while the Lions are currently tying twice since now. These two games are the third-place tie for the Lions, with two of the most recent ties in the league acquainting the Lions.
