Rand: Worst to first isn't impossible in the NFL

  • Updated: March 10, 2014 - 7:12 AM

From 2003 to 2013 — 11 consecutive seasons — at least one NFL team has won its division a year after finishing last in the division. In five of those seasons, including 2013 with Carolina and Philadelphia, multiple teams went from worst to first. In 2006, three teams did it, giving us a total of 17 over the past 11 seasons.
