The Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs faced off in last season’s AFC Divisional game and it turned out to be one of the greatest games in NFL history. It was a back and forth affair with plenty of drama that needed overtime to decide the outcome.
The Chiefs would tie the game at 36 with a last second field goal to send the game to an extra frame. The way the two offenses were clicking in the fourth quarter, matching each other score for score, everyone knew whoever won the coin toss in overtime would likely come away with the victory.
And as we all know by now, Kansas City ended up winning the toss and easily marched down the field for the game winning touchdown.
Bills Quarterback Josh Allen recently appeared on the “Bussin With The Boys” Podcast and explained how he felt he was jinxed during a pre-game production meeting regarding the coin toss.
Up to that point I think I was 9-0 throughout the season. In our production meeting, it was jinxed, and I was 0 or 2 in that game,” Allen said. “They brought up that stat, you’re 9-0 on the coin toss….So I go 0-2 on coin tosses that game.”
Allen can be heard speaking about the coin toss at the 43 minute mark in the video below.
It’s a shame that Josh Allen and the Bills offense was not able to possess the ball in overtime, as they were performing at a very high level.
There have been numerous calls for the NFL to change the overtime rules to allow each team to have at least one possession. This game was further proof that a tweak is much-needed, especially in the playoffs.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
