I know I said a week ago that the wins/losses don't matter anymore, and really they don't, but consider this. A true talent .500 team has about a coin flip chance of winning or losing any given game - I'm ignoring home field advantage and strength of schedule here. There's a 25% shot at losing two in a row; a little over 6% at losing four straight; 0.4% at eight in a row; and literally less than 0.1% at ten in a row.

It's not the kind of extreme rarity that any of us wanted, but at least we got to see something odds defying this September.
