NFL week 3 opens Thursday night with the Atlanta Falcons hosting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bucs, like many teams this week, are in an 0-2 hole and looking for their first win.

History shows that 0-2 teams advance to the playoffs more often than people might think. Since the current playoff format was instituted in 1990, 23 teams started 0-2 and still qualified for the postseason.

Last season, the Carolina Panthers started the season 0-2 and went on to win the NFC South after finishing 12-4, becoming the first team since the 2003 Philadelphia Eagles to earn a first-round bye after an 0-2 start.

The 1993 Dallas Cowboys started 0-2 before winning Super Bowl XXVIII. The 0-2 New England Patriots of 1996 played in Super Bowl XXXI, and in 2001, the 0-2 Patriots won Super Bowl XXXVI. The 2007 New York Giants started 0-2 before winning Super Bowl XLII.

Needless to say, every team is still alive for a playoff-run. Here is the TV schedule and odds (via OddsShark) for Week 3.
