After the coin toss before overtime in the Green Bay Packers-Arizona Cardinals playoff game led to confusion and some controversy, comedian Stephen Colbert had some foolproof suggestions to help the NFL avoid such a situation in the future.

Goodbye, coin flip. Hello, "spin the bottle." 

Don't like that idea? Don't worry, there are plenty of others to choose from.

Saturday night's game may have featured the first toss of a coin that didn't actually flip, but there have been problems with the coin toss in the past. Jerome Bettis and the Pittsburgh Steelers will never forget the most infamous coin-flip fail in NFL history.

The toss is too important of an event to have problems, so the league would be wise to check out what Colbert has to say.

Let's help the NFL with this situation. What should replace the coin toss to determine who gets the ball at football games?
