The Eagles won a coin flip today over the Indianapolis Colts and now hold the 14th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft that will take place in Philadelphia in April.
It was a minor, yet significant, occurrence in the busy NFL offseason but you bet your butts that Eagles nation had some fun with the coin toss.
Here are just a few of the humorous responses about the big victory from Twitter.
Wow, there’s already a movie in the works about the Eagles’ victory in today’s draft-pick coin toss. pic.twitter.com/119xYrlWmx— Dan McQuade (@dhm) March 3, 2017

"Ah, did I ever tell you the tale of the Great Coin Toss of 2017?"
Is that Howie's phone in his pocket or is he just happy to win the coin flip? pic.twitter.com/6Prov0Lw3a— Les Bowen (@LesBowen) March 3, 2017
