Illustration for article titled NFL Tries To Hype Up Draft Order Coin Flip

The Vikings and Colts both finished 8-8 and tied with a .495 strength of schedule, so a coin flip determined who won the earlier pick. This somehow turned into a small event at the NFL Combine, as if there weren’t already enough excitement.

Circle up, everyone, and watch a coin get flipped. Look how pretty it is:

They did it. The coin was flipped.

The Vikings won, which meant that the Eagles, who received Minnesota’s first-round pick through the Sam Bradford trade, would pick 14th, and the Colts would pick 15th. Plaudits to everyone involved.
