I was just wondering what the record wins (during the super bowl era) is of a 4th place team. For example, Washington commanders went 8-8-1 (.500) this year. Any team do any better to still come in 4th place in their division?

1 Answer 1


There are (at least) three times a 4th place division team finished 8-8.

  • 2007 Eagles: 8-8
  • 2007 Texans: 8-8
  • 2008 Saints: 8-8

This is since the 2002 realignment. I reckon there are better cases before then.
