Are the Carolina Panthers one of those teams that likes to trust their defense to start off a game and defer to the second half after winning the coin toss? Or do they like putting the ball in the hands of Cam Newton right away to set the tone for the rest of the game? Had they won a single coin toss this season, we might be able to answer that question. The Panthers have lost 12 coin tosses this season, including each one at the start of their 11 games and one at the beginning of their overtime loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers a couple weeks back. Since the team is having absolutely no luck calling the toss in the air, Carolina is asking the fans to make the call this weekend when they take on the Kansas City Chiefs. By liking the Carolina Panthers on Facebook, fans can vote for whether the team should call “heads” or “tails” before their game against the Chiefs on Sunday. The fans are currently in favor of heads, which has received 51% of the vote. The odds of losing 12 straight coin tosses when you have a 50% chance of winning each one are astonishing, but it’s not the first time we have seen something like this happen. Remember when this unlucky team dealt with the same misfortune almost exactly a year ago? Give the Panthers credit for turning their bad luck into a marketing campaign. H/T The Big Lead
