Seattle Seahawks, Arizona Cardinals manage to tie 6-6 in bizarre Sunday Night Football debacle

The Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals somehow managed to end their game in Glendale on Sunday night in a 6-6 tie, after each team missed potentially game-winning field goals in overtime. It was only the 21st tie in NFL history, or at least since current overtime rules were put in place in 1974, and the lowest-scoring tie on the books, the NFL says. Each team had 3 points and lots of failed plays going into overtime, and each kicked a field goal. The wheels seriously started coming off the bus when Cardinals kicker Chandler Catanzaro managed to bounce a second overtime field goal attempt off the left upright.

The Seahawks' Stephen Hauschka returned the favor, missing a 28-yard field goal attempt entirely, and the game ended with a Hail Mary pass by Carson Palmer. "Two hundred games, including playoffs," Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald said after the game, "I have never played in a game as crazy as this one before."
