KANSAS CITY, Mo. — It's the literal toss-up play of the game.
Heads or tails.
NFL teams have a 50/50 chance of winning. At this point in the season, the Chiefs have had Lady Luck on their side -- winning 9 coin tosses in a row.
The streak lives. The #Chiefs win the coin toss for a ninth-consecutive week and elected to defer. Kansas City will start on defense.

Is this history in the making?
The Detroit Lions hold the record for most consecutive coin toss wins. This happened in the 2004-05 season with 14 wins in-a-row. The Lions went 6-10 that season.
The Chiefs are now 8-1 and take on the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.
