New Orleans Saints fans, here’s the stat you probably haven’t been waiting for.
But I’ll throw it out there anyway because it’s my job. According to ESPN Stats & Information, since the NFL went to its current playoff format in 1990, 113 teams have started the season 0-3.
Of those 113 teams, only three have recovered to make the playoffs.
The Saints are 0-3. You want to hear their chance at making the playoffs right now? I just pulled out the calculator, punched the numbers and came up with 0.02655 percent.
We’ll get you an update after next week’s game in Green Bay.
