A 12 percent chance Eagles reach playoffs

Statistically the Eagles have their backs to the wall.
Great idea went to waste Sunday.

The Eagles are 0-2. A shade less than 12 percent of teams that started 0-2 have reached the postseason since 1990 according to CBS Sports research.

The Eagles last started 0-2 in 2007. They finished 8-8 and among the 88 percent who failed to reach the playoffs.

In 2003 the Eagles started 0-2 yet rallied to win the division. They lost in the second round of the playoffs.

The Eagles also started 0-2 in both 1998 and 1999 and wound up with losing records.

The Cowboys, who are 2-0. have a 63 percent chance of making the playoffs based on the same sample size.

The Cowboys, however, will be without the services of quarterback Tony Romo and Dez Bryant for roughly 6-to-8 weeks.
