They also lost all 3 first games by under 7 points.
Look at the results after the bye week. A five game win streak and did not lose two in a row from there on out. THATS what it takes to make the playoffs after starting 0-3. What has RIvera's longest win streak been? 2 games?
It looks MUCH harder on paper once you realize what 0-3 does to you.
Its a good thing the Panthers will be 1-2 this week... no?
