Ranking the 0-2 NFL teams, from the hopeful (the Bengals!) to the hopeless (Panthers, c’mon)

Just because your year didn’t start the way you envisioned doesn’t mean all hope is lost. An NFL season is long — 17 games to be exact. Such an extended schedule usually translates into a roller coaster of emotions from week to week.

But after their slow starts, a handful of teams can’t afford to ride Six Flags’ terrifying speed demons as much as others.

Five squads — the Bengals, Titans, Raiders, Falcons and Panthers — are 0-2 to begin their 2022 campaigns. By historical standards, their years might already be over from a playoff standpoint. Since the NFL-AFL merger in 1970, only 9.5 percent of teams have made the postseason after starting 0-2. It’s not an impossible task to recover from a listless start, but you sure as heck better not have many more missteps.
