Coin Toss Trivia:

The team that has won the toss has gone on to win four of the last six Super Bowls. Overall, the toss has almost lived up to its reputation as a 50/50 proposition, with heads landing 24 times and tails landing 25 times in the 49 Super Bowls.

One of the most interesting occurrences in Super Bowl coin toss history is the 14 straight coin tosses won by NFC teams from Super Bowl XXXII to Super Bowl XLV. While the NFC dominated the cøin toss, they didn’t fair as well at winning the games going 5-9 over this streak of cōin toss wins.
