This one preseason stat might have just eliminated 11 teams from winning the Super Bowl


Normally, if your favorite NFL team has a bad preseason, it really doesn’t mean much, but it might mean something this year, and that’s because an interesting pattern has developed between preseason play and winning the Super Bowl. 

So what’s the pattern? 

For the past 10 years, no Super Bowl champion has finished the preseason with a losing record. Here’s a list of every Super Bowl champion for the past 10 years and a look at their final record during the preseason. 

If this pattern holds up for 2018, that means we can go ahead and eliminate the Dolphins, Jets, Titans, Redskins, Eagles, Cowboys, Bears, Lions, Falcons, 49ers and Seahawks from Super Bowl contention, because they all finished the preseason with a losing record.
