Only 22 of 160 #NFL teams who've started 0-2 since 1990 made the playoffs

The past 19 years of NFL history suggest the Carolina Panthers would do well not to fall to 0-2 at Atlanta Sunday if their hopes of making the playoffs are to be fulfilled.

According to NFL.com, of the 160 clubs that have started a season 0-2 since 1990, when the league expanded the playoffs to include 12 teams, only 22 (13.8 percent) advanced to the postseason. And only 10 (6.3 percent) went on to become division champions.

History means nothing. Ask the 04 Red Sox! We have a much better TEAM than what showed up this past week. Time to put it behind and look forward to Sunday. I know I am!
