This is the fiftieth year of professional football in Minnesota.
This is not the first time the Vikings have opened 0-2.
Looking back over the history of the Vikings, 2010 is the tenth time the team has started the season with consecutive losses.
In fact it is not even the first time head coach Brad Childress has started 0-2.
The previous nine teams ended the season with an average of 5.8 wins. Only twice has the team finished with a winning record and only one of those made the playoffs.
In his first two games Brett Favre is 37 of 63 for 363 yards for only one touchdown and four interceptions.
This results in a measly 56.1 quarterback rating, almost half of his rating of 107.2 from 2009.
Here's a look back in chronological order for the previous nine 0-2 seasons and how those teams finished, and the performance of the starting quarterbacks after two games.
Can the Vikings resurrect their season and still defend their division title?
Will Favre turnaround his performance to lead the team to the Super Bowl?
Past performances are not favorable.
Remember though, past performance is not an indicator of future gains (or losses).
