The last 15 teams who started 2-0 and who won both games by at least 14 points have all made the playoffs.

The last one not to was the 2003 Bills team.

The last Eagle team to do it was the 1980 NFC Champion team.

In general, teams starting 2-0 make the playoffs 62 percent of the time.

Didn't they start 2-0 in 2004 when they went to the SB?

Not that I'm saying this is a SB team at all.

Yes, but didn't win the first two by those margins

True but I don't know who the opponents were or how good those opponents were.

I know Eagles' fans love to think they're going to the SB every year (not saying you are) and all but let's all calm down here. Wentz has looked fantastic for sure but we'll see how he does down the road. He's showing signs he's the real deal but people have come into the NFL and looked great at the start only to pitter out in the past. He could also get injured. The defense could still not be able to cover anyone in the secondary. The offensive line still has issues and, with Lane Johnson gone for the bulk of the season, those problems just got worse.

With the NFC East sucking so badly they certainly have a good shot at making the playoffs but I'm not sure they'll be beating the better playoff teams just yet. We'll find out a bit more this weekend against the Steelers.

I've just learned, as a fan of the Eagles for almost half a century, to not get overly-excited so early in the season...

As things go, eventually the bubble will burst. Until then we can enjoy the ride.

My excitement has nothing to do with this season. We are going to have a top tier QB for the next 10-15 years. Which means corresponding relevance.

Look at the QB situation in the NFC. It's extremely lean. We should be able to compete for the foreseeable future.

How many lost their OT for most of the season?
