IT’S STILL EARLY: History shows that 0-2 teams advance to the playoffs more often than people might think. Since the current playoff format was instituted in 1990, 24 teams started 0-2 and still qualified for the postseason.
Last season, the INDIANAPOLIS COLTS started the season 0-2 and went on to win the AFC South after finishing 11-5, advancing to the AFC Championship Game.
The 1993 Dallas Cowboys started 0-2 before winning Super Bowl XXVIII. The 0-2 New England Patriots of 1996 played in Super Bowl XXXI, and in 2001, the 0-2 Patriots won Super Bowl XXXVI. The 2007 New York Giants started 0-2 before winning Super Bowl XLII.
