WHAT TO LOOK FOR – WEEK 13

WHAT TO LOOK FOR – WEEK 13

NEVER SAY NEVER: Since the current 12-team playoff format was instituted in 1990, 15 teams have reached the postseason despite having a losing record after 11 games.

 

This includes a streak of seven consecutive seasons (2004-2010) in which a sub-.500 team after 11 games reached the playoffs. Six of those seven won at least one playoff game.

 

The teams with a losing record after 11 games to make the playoffs since 1990:
