The View from the Bottom

I commented yesterday that, since Jacksonville and Tennessee both won yesterday (and we all know Houston won), the Colts are at the bottom of their division.  I wondered, when was the last time this happened?  Well, this morning I did the research.

This is the first time the Colts have EVER been at the bottom of the AFC South, which was created in 2002.  Before that the Colts were in the AFC East with the Dolphins, Patriots, Jets, and Bills.  The answer is:  1998.

The only question I have is: at what point were we alone at the bottom?  The reason for my question is this: the Bills didn't win a divisional game until week 6.   They rolled into Indianapolis on Sunday Oct 11th with a divisional record of 0-1.  We had a divisional record of 0-3.   Were we sharing the basement until the outcome of that game (they won)?  Or did we fall to the bottom in week 2 when we had an 0-2 record and the Bills were still 0-1?

1998.  Peyton Manning's rookie year.  The last time we had no place to go but up. I can see the top from here, we just have to start winning, right?
