From ESPN's Paul Kuharsky: Since 1990, 20 of the 22 Super Bowl champions (91%) won at least three of their final five regular-season games.— Bob Kravitz (@bkravitz) January 3, 2013
Bob Kravitz gives us this gem "From ESPN's Paul Kuharsky: Since 1990, 20 of the 22 Super Bowl champions (91%) won at least three of their final five regular-season games." Spewing out stats that are useless is one thing, regurgitating them without any analysis to your followers is another. So I'll give you some analysis Here are the teams that are in the playoffs and their record in their last 5 games (of if they were undefeated in their last 5, the number of games they have won in a row) Team - (Last 5) (1) Atlanta - (3-2) (2) San Francisco - (3-2) (3) Green Bay - (4-1) (4) Washington - (7-0) (5) Seattle - (5-0) (6) Minnesota - (4-1) (1) Denver - (11-0) (2) New England - (4-1) (3) Houston - (2-3) (4) Baltimore - (1-4) (5) Indianapolis - (4-1) (6) Cincinnati - (4-1) So what does this mean? Nothing because nobody is picking Baltimore or Houston to win the Super Bowl. Heck they are both the most popular upset pick by seed. Does this mean the Colts are more likely to win the Super Bowl because of their momentum? No because they still have to go through red hot Denver or New England.
