Historically, as a general observation, teams that make the Superbowl, RARELY lose by double digits in any regular season game.

I have noticed this over a number of years, teams that advance to the Superbowl, do not lose a game(s) by double digits. And or they do not get dominated, such as the Panthers did last night. i am not saying it doesn't EVER happen. But in general, it does not happen. if it did, or does happen, it is an anomaly. We'll see.

Great points, but we did something in 09 that had never been done.
3 game losing streak to end the season, lift the Lombardi.

I’m really thinking now that if we end up with the 1 seed, which is no easy task given this schedule.....we will march in to the Super Bowl.

*barring catastrophic injuries.

Seeing that NYG @ NO score from 2011 makes me weep for what could have been.

24 games, out of how many total? In my view, an anomaly.

As a sidebar, how many of those teams ended up winning the Superbowl?

2008; Steelers 1 loss, CHAMPS.
2009; Saints 1 loss, CHAMPS.
2010; Steelers 2 losses, CHAMPS.
2011; Giants 4 loses, CHAMPS (really unusual).
2012; Ravens 2 losses, CHAMPS.
2013; Seahawks 1 loss , CHAMPS.
2014; Patriots 2 losses, CHAMPS.
2015; Broncos 1 loss, CHAMPS.
2016; Patriots 1 loss, CHAMPS.
2017; Eagles 1 loss, CHAMPS.

Let's brake it down. I count 24 TOTAL double digit losses by Superbowl teams. 24/320 games....(.075%). Very low. And add in, by your account, 3 teams rested their starters.

16 total losses by double digits over the last 10 SUPERBOWL CHAMPIONS, 4 of which, were by the Giants! 16/320...(.05%).

I say it is safe to say, losing by double digits in a regular season game, is an anomaly for a Superbowl team and even more so, for a Superbowl Champion. That's just me. But hey; you can look at it any way you want.

Like I said. IT DOES happen, but is rare. I did not say; IT DOES NOT happen. By your stats, it IS rare.
