Was the Super Bowl coin toss heads or tails?

We will provide an answer to was the Super Bowl coin toss heads or tails right here soon after the results of the flip. The Super Bowl coin that is flipped each year is much more extravagant than your traditional American quarter. Most are the size of a US silver dollar, according to a recent article by Hometown News about this year’s coin. This year’s piece measures 39 mm in diameter and weighs around 1 oz.

Update: The Bengals won the toss.

And, as is always the case, the coin will be sent to the Pro Football Hall of Fame following the game.

Who won, the Bengals or Rams?

As for who won the coin toss, the Bengals or Rams, we will provide that answer here below as well. Even though the Rams are playing in their home yard, SoFi Stadium, they are technically the “road team” for this year’s Super Bowl. The visitor gets the honors in calling the coin toss before kickoff, so the Rams will have their say.

Sean McVay’s crew may not want to win the coin toss, though, considering coin toss winners have lost seven straight Super Bowls.
