We’re not sure what’s more expected, a Cleveland team in the World Series, or the instance of ties in back to back weeks in the NFL.
The Cardinals and Seahawks found themselves at 6-6 when the clock struck zero in overtime and the Bengals and Redskins brought a tie to the UK in their game in London.
Regardless, the two do have a connection. The last time the NFL saw two ties in a single season was 1997, the same year the Cleveland Indians lost in seven games to the Florida Marlins.
2 ties in the #NFL this season. Last time that happened? 1997. The same year the Indians lost the World Series in 7 games.

The Chicago Cubs of course won Sunday night at Wrigley Field, holding off elimination and climbing somewhat back into the series at 3 game to 2 heading back to Cleveland for the final two games.
