If a tie is like kissing your sister, then America got treated to possibly the most awkward three-hour make-out session of all-time on Sunday when the Lions and Steelers game ended in a 16-16 tie.
The tie had basically everything you could ever want from an NFL game…. well, it didn’t have a winner and the quality of play on the field was pretty low, so I guess it actually had nothing you would ever want from an NFL game.
