In the classic film Dumb and Dumber, Lloyd Christmas asks Mary Swanson to shoot him straight regarding his chances with the beautiful red head. Mary gives him one in a million odds, to which LLoyd responds, “So you’re telling me there’s a chance…yeah!”
And really, that’s a pretty fitting way of describing the Eagles’ playoff hopes.
Since 1990, 239 teams have began the season with a 1-4 record. Of those 239 teams, only five have made the playoffs. So while we aren’t talking Lloyd Christmas/Mary Swanson odds, history suggests the Eagles are screwed.
What’s more, based on the current standings heading into the Packers-Falcons matchup, the Eagles have a seven percent chance of reaching the postseason.
They have roughly a five percent chance of winning their division, and a two percent chance of winning the wild card. Check out the full chart after the jump.
