Sunday's Week 10 game between the St. Louis Rams and San Francisco 49ers ended 27-27 in overtime, becoming the NFL's first draw since November 16, 2008 (Eagles-Bengals).
Each team had their chance to snatch victory, but missed field goals in the final stanza.
On the Niners' first possession in OT, following a Rams punt, they drove down the field to St. Louis' 23, setting up a 41-yard field goal attempt which David Akers pulled to the left.
Then, on the ensuing drive, the Rams moved the ball to San Fran's 35. From there, Greg Zuerlein was successful on a 52-yard attempt, but it was negated by an inexplicable delay of game penalty.

Danny Amendola's first game in a month for the St. Louis Rams was a huge success. And that's without the 142 yards on a pair of big plays that were nullified by penalty.
A day after repeated mistakes cost the Rams an upset at San Francisco, the wide receiver said he'd try to take the positives out the NFL's first tie game in four years.
Easy to say, hard to swallow...

Yesterday, the San Francisco 49ers and the St. Louis Rams game ended in a 24-24 tie, the first since 2008.
While most NFL fans knew the possibility that the game could end in a tie, it appears that 49ers safety Dashon Goldson and Rams wide receiver Danny Amendola weren't aware of that fact:
“I didn’t know you could tie,” Goldson said, per Cam Inman. “When I saw...

But regardless of his play, Moss has never been afraid to speak his mind. On Sunday, Moss took part in an interview...
