Of all the strange things that happened during Saturday's crazy divisional-round matchup between the Green Bay Packers and Arizona Cardinals, the oddest may have been the coin flip that didn't flip to start overtime.

Aaron Rodgers, who called tails before the initial toss, believes he should have gotten another chance to call a side prior to the second flip:

"He had it on heads, he was showing heads, so I called tails, and it didn't flip," Rodgers told assembled media following the game. "He just tossed it up in the air and it did not turn over at all and it landed on the ground. So we obviously thought that was not right. He picked the coin up, flipped it to tails and then he flipped it without giving me a chance to make a re-call there.

"So it was confusing."

It's unknown whether Rodgers would have changed his call, but the frustration of losing such a gut-wrenching game is likely the source of Rodgers' anger with the situation.

"I think he was trying to avoid the embarrassment of what just happened. He flipped it quickly," Rodgers said. "It's unfortunate it comes down to that."
