Joe Mixon makes feelings EXTREMELY clear about a possible coin toss by trolling the NFL with celebrations
Joe Mixon is EXTREMELY making his feelings about a possible coin toss for home field advantage trolling the NFL with Coin TD celebrations — after being slammed in the league for not playing by the rules
Joe Mixon used his touchdown celebration in the first quarter on Sunday to remind the NFL of his disdain for coin tosses.
Mixon lashed out in the league last week after passing a resolution that would have used a coin toss to determine home field advantage between the Bengals and Ravens in a potential wildcard matchup – if Cincinnati had lost to its rivals over the weekend .
While the rules originally called for a win percentage as a tiebreaker in the event of a canceled game, the NFL changed course to accommodate the Bengals-Bills’ no contest after Damar Hamlin went into cardiac arrest.

And while the Bengals moved up to 12-4 with their 27-16 win over Baltimore — which made the coin toss controversy a moot point — Mixon didn’t miss a chance to troll the league in the first quarter.
After hitting a one-yard score of 1:11 in the first quarter, Mixon pulled out a coin and tossed it in the air as his teammates gathered.
He then pretended to toss the coin into the crowd before kicker Evan McPherson scored the extra point to give the team a 10-point lead.

While Cincinnati easily won the AFC North against Baltimore (10-7), the resolution made it a must to avoid a coin toss, as a Ravens win would have separated the teams only by winning percentage points.
Mixon wasn’t a fan of the resolution last week.
“So we don’t follow the rules anymore,” he tweeted.
Bengals coach Zac Taylor was also unhappy with the league’s decision to change its own rules.

“It’s black and white, it’s in the rule book,” Taylor told reporters on Friday.
While Cincinnati was able to wrap up the division on Sunday, they won’t be escaping the AFC North just yet.
The Ravens will return to Paycor Field next Sunday night as both teams eye a trip to the divisional round.

Commissioner Roger Goodell said the league aims to “minimize competitive disparities”.
