Heads-up: Seahawks' coin toss scheduled for Friday morning
It's not a question of heads or tails, though. It's more like a heads-up battle as the NFL has a specially minted coin for the occasion with the Chiefs logo on one side, the Seahawks on the other. A league official will conduct the coin toss.
The two teams finished with the same record of 7-9, and had the same strength of schedule, which is determined by the collective record of their opponents. Since Seattle is in the NFC, Kansas City the AFC, division and conference records are not used to break a tie, meaning the draft order will be determined by the coin flip with the winner getting the No. 11 overall pick in the first round, the loser picking No. 12.
Oh yeah, the winner also gets to keep that specially minted coin, too.
