I didn't see the actual game, but my guess from what you said is GB kicked a field goal. And then Minn must have kicked one for the tie.
The rules are, the first team to score a TD (even off a fumble or interception) wins. Game over.
However, if the one team scores a FG, they will win if the other team cannot score on their possession. If the other team can score a TD they will win. If only a FG it's a tie.
Both teams get a possession this way, which I like a lot more. It's up to the first team with the ball if they only want to kick a field goal or really try for a touchdown and the win.
