Seahawks Call Tails During OT Coin Flip, Lands On Heads, Seattle Given Ball Anyway

Ladies and gentleman, NFL officiating…

Blatant errors by the referees has been a pressing topic this season, just like every other year, and Monday night’s game may be the egregious of them all.

During the overtime coin toss of Seahawks-49ers, Seattle backup QB Geno Smith was sent out to call the toss, to which he proclaimed “tails.”

The referee then announced that Smith called “heads,” and the coin landed on such.

Despite getting the coin toss wrong, Seattle was awarded the choice of defer or receive to which they received.

Seattle didn’t score on their first possession of extra time, but did go on to win the game.
