Not really in a spot right now to look this up but has anyone ever run the table in the AFC South since our inception? My best guess is that the Colts might have done it...but I doubt the Jags or Titans have done it.

Could we possibly be the first?

Colts have done it I think. The year they went to the super bowl against the saints

Colts did it in 2005 and 2009, Titans did it in 2002.

If they end up running the table on the AFC South they could add that to sweeping the old AFC Central too.

Win you run the table in the division, you're playoff bound no matter what almost. Texans have had a great season. A one loss team if Schaub and Andre Johnson had stayed healthy this year.

You do know we lost three games with a healthy Schaub & two games with a healthy Schaub & Aj, right?

Only lost 1 game with a healthy Andre, the Saints.
He was hurt against the Steelers and missed the Ravens and Raiders game.

Plus we didn't have Foster against the Saints.

Nobody beat us with all 3 in the lineup. Of course it only happened for a quarter and a half against the Steelers.

This season is just monumental. Best defense in the NFL, next man up, first playoff and division title, bloody Cushing, on the nose, 3rd string rookie qb, bulls on parade...

And now possibly sweeping our division. Man this is such a great ride!

Run the table in the division and all you're assured of is a 6-10 record. The Raiders almost did that last year, sweeping the division but only winning 2 games outside it and missing the playoffs. I think the Bengals did a similar sort of thing a couple of years ago.

Cincy got the playoffs that year and folded to the Jets twice.

Yeah, I should have been clearer about that.

With Cincy, I meant to say that they were great in their division but crap out of it. So even though they got to the playoffs, there wasn't a team they could beat once they got there.

The 2008 Cardinals swept the NFC West, but went 3-7 outside the division. Once the playoffs started, however, Arizona took care of business and won 3 straight before losing a tight game to Pittsburgh in the Super Bowl.

Lesson? Get to the playoffs however you can. And hope for a little magic.

They experienced injury after injury that year. It's not so much that they laid down for the Jets, they were just too banged up & Chad Johnson turned out to be little more than a big mouth.

Excellent point.

But if you build your team to beat your divisional opponents and only get up for those games (for one reason or another), you still run the risk of missing the playoffs. Going 9-7 (or 7-9 like the Seahawks) won't normally get you in. But if you are able to slip in, it's a new season from that point.

Brian Johnson was wide open toward the corner of the endzone.
The kid needed to get 7 on that one.
