    The NFL shortened overtime to 10 minutes and people want to make sure Donovan McNabb knows

    First reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter, the NFL owners have voted today to shorten overtime from 15 minutes to 10 minutes as a move to reduce playing time to aid in player safety.

    People on Twitter wanted to make sure Donovan McNabb knows about the change.


    Although nearly nine years have passed since the Eagles and Bengals played to a 13-13 tie, it seems the former Eagles' QB still hasn't lived down the fact that he didn't know that could happen in the NFL.

    "I've never been a part of a tie," McNabb said after the game ended. "I never even knew that was in the rule book."

    McNabb wasn't alone, as several other of his teammates, including DeSean Jackson and Correll Buckhalter also did not know the game could end in a tie.

    Now, more games will likely end in a tie and fans probably won't ever let McNabb forget it.
