There's a joke to be made at Donovan McNabb's expense here.

After an ugly game against the Detroit Lions finished in a 16-16 tie, Pittsburgh Steelers rookie running back Najee Harris admitted that he wasn't aware you could tie in the NFL:

To be fair to Harris, games can't end in ties in college, and it's not as though Alabama would have been in danger of tying too many games anyway.

The Steelers were seemingly going to have a chance to attempt a game-winning field goal in the waning minutes of overtime Sunday, but tight end Pat Freiermuth fumbled the ball on the Lions 38-yard line, and Detroit recovered the ball.

A first-round pick in 2021, Harris ran for 105 yards on 26 carries in Week 10. On the season, he's rushed for 646 yards. The Steelers -- who played without Ben Roethlisberger Sunday, after he was placed on the COVID-19 reserve list -- are now 5-3-1 this season.
