As I wrote on Wednesday, the Chiefs have won the opening coin toss in nine consecutive games. I know that’s a silly thing to focus on, but it really could be one of the few outcomes that’s in serious doubt on Sunday.
With a nod to the commenters on Wednesday’s article, the probability that the Chiefs will win the toss on Sunday is indeed 50 percent; what’s happened previously has no bearing on which way a single coin toss will land. And yes… as the away team, the Chiefs have called the toss in just five of the nine games in the streak.
