There were many moments that will be remembered from Saturday's wild divisional-round matchup between the Green Bay Packers and Arizona Cardinals, but the coin flip in overtime may be the one that will sting the Packers' for some time to come.
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers called tails on the initial coin toss, only to have the official toss the coin and have it fall flat without flipping in the air.
For his part, Rodgers believes that his team should have had the opportunity to call a side, prior to the second flip.
"He had it on heads, he was showing heads, so I called tails, and it didn't flip," Rodgers told assembled media following the game. "He just tossed it up in the air and it did not turn over at all and it landed on the ground. So we obviously thought that was not right. He picked the coin up, flipped it to tails and then he flipped it without giving me a chance to make a re-call there.
"So it was confusing."
It's unknown whether Rodgers would have changed his call, but the frustration of losing is likely the source of Rodgers' anger with the situation.
"I think he was trying to avoid the embarrassment of what just happened. He flipped it quickly," Rodgers said. "It's unfortunate it comes down to that."
