One of the more fascinating stat lines stems from how many NFL teams end up qualifying for the playoffs after starting out 0-2.
A blog entry that appeared on the New York Times’ website earlier this week noted that, since 1990, “only 22 of the 184 teams that started the season 0-2 ultimately made the playoffs.” Referencing back to when the league last expanded in 2002, just 10.1 percent of the 79 teams saddled with a donut and exactly two “L’s” were able to right the ship and achieve postseason status.
