After the game, wide receiver, Danny Amendola said he did not think the game was over after the end of the first overtime. Amendola said he was surprised when the game was over after the first quarter of overtime. “We’d never practiced or talked about going into a number of overtimes,” Amendola said, in an interview with USA Today’s Mike Garafolo. So I was just getting ready for the next one. I honestly didn’t know a game could end in a tie. Call me stupid, but I don’t give a [expletive]. Today, Amendola told reporters he was willing to do anything if it meant another game did not have to end in a tie. “I don’t agree with ties. It is what it is, I guess. I’m upset we tied. We should’ve won and they could’ve put it away. Either way, we could’ve had an outcome. I don’t know. Maybe they should change the rule.” Asked for a preferred method, Amendola suggested “Play until somebody wins the game,” although that flies in the face of player safety. “I don’t care. Then have a shoot-off or something,” he said. “It’s just not a good feeling at the end of the game when nobody wins,” he continued. “We put all this time and this effort in, put our bodies on the line for five hours. Essentially, something needs to happen so somebody wins. That’s just how I feel about it.” The NFL needs to adopt college football’s rules for overtime. If college players can play until someone wins, why can’t professionals do the same?
