We did some thinking, and we can’t find another instance where this has ever happened.
Just when you thought this game couldn’t get anymore exciting…during the coin toss that comes to decided which team gets to choose who gets the ball in over time, the head referee working the Cardinals vs Packers game literally forgot to flip the coin…
Here’s a zoomed in view of the coin in mid flight:

The Cardinals ended up with the ball to start OT, and did not look back, scoring on 3 plays which gashed the Packers defense with WR Larry Fitzgerald, who eventually won the game with a TD.
