The Cleveland Browns are having such a difficult time this season, they can’t even win coin tosses, let alone games.
The Browns dropped to 4-7 on the season after losing to the Bengals Sunday. Even more improbably, they lost the coin toss for the 11th time this year.
That’s right, even though the chances of correctly calling a coin flip are 50-50, the Browns have managed to go 0-11 on coin flips. The odds against that are 2,048-1.
“Who keeps that stat? That’s what I want to know,” left tackle Joe Thomas said two weeks ago when the team had lost its first nine flips in a row.
Thomas said that the team didn’t realize how bad it was on coin tosses until recently. He also said they don’t pay too much attention to the toss. Instead they focus on the decision to receive or kick.
What’s strange is that the Browns haven’t been the only team to struggle with coin tosses this season. The Saints had been 0-11 on flips until winning the toss Monday night against the Giants. I guess the only thing to cheer up the Browns is knowing that their streak could be much worse.
