So You're Telling Me There's A Chance...


Here's an interesting stat coming from the league, which should interest the Kansas City Chiefs:
In past 7 seasons a team with a losing record after 11 games has made playoffs: 04-StL 05-Was 06-Phi 07-Was 08-SD 09-NYJ 10-Sea
But only one of those teams -- the '08 Chargers -- had a 4-7 record. The rest were at 5-6 after 11 games so the odds are definitely stacked against them (considering they have the toughest schedule down the stretch).

Here are the records of all those teams after 11 games. Interestingly, six of these seven teams won at least one playoff game.

2010 Seahawks: 5-6 (7-9)
2009 Jets: 5-6 (9-7)
2008 Chargers: 4-7 (8-8)
2007 Redskins: 5-6 (9-7)
2006 Eagles: 5-6 (10-6)
2005 Redskins: 5-6 (10-6)
2004 Rams: 5-6 (8-8)
