Numbers: Saints have little playoff chance

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.
