If you’re reading this article then no doubt there is yet another Super Bowl upon us, and you would like to know the history of the Super Bowl Coin Toss!
This is a timeless article updated after every Super Bowl. Last Update: Super Bowl XLVIII / Super Bowl 48. Seahawks 43-8 Broncos, Tails, Seahawks won the Toss.
In this article, we chronicle every single Super Bowl, the result of the Super Bowl, what side the coin landed on during the toss, and then of course who won the toss.
The full list is below. We have had 3 separate people go through every Super Bowl, to verify the accuracy of this list. Also some interesting stats before we get to the list:
In 48 Super Bowls:
Times the coin has landed on heads: 24.
Times the coin has landed on tails: 24.
Times the team who called correctly won the Super Bowl: 24
Times the team who called heads won the Super Bowl: 12
Times the team who called tails won the Super Bowl: 12
Amount of webpages referencing the Joe Namath fluffed coin toss: 13,900 approx.
And finally some Super Bowl 49 Coin Toss Specific Stats:
The Seahawks have been in the Super Bowl twice. Both times, they have been on Tails. They lost one game, and won the other, however won both coin tosses.
The Patriots have been in the Super Bowl 7 times. They have won the coin toss just twice. Both times, it was when they got Heads. However they have had heads previously and still lost.
And before you ask – no, we do NOT know how a deflated coin would affect the toss.
