Only 2 NFL teams have ever done what Packers, Colts will do in Week 9

Only two teams in NFL history have faced the misery that the Colts and Packers will both face in Week 9.

If you've lost track of the NFL schedule: The Colts will be hosting the 7-0 Broncos this week, while the Packers will travel to Carolina for a game against the 7-0 Panthers.

So why's that notable?

It's notable because both the Colts and Packers will be playing a team that's 6-0 or better for the second straight week, something that almost never happens in the NFL.

As a matter of fact, only two teams in history have gone through what the Colts and Packers are currently going through. In 1934, the Detroit Lions played the 11-0 Bears and then had to turn around and play the 12-0 Bears the next week.

The Bears stayed undefeated by winning the first game 19-16. A week later, the Bears beat the Lions by three points again, 10-7.

The Packers and Colts could both use a win on Sunday.

On the Packers end, a loss to Carolina could wrap up the No. 1 seed for the Panthers. If Green Bay loses, then Carolina will have a two-game lead for the NFC's top seed, plus the Panthers would hold the head-to-head tiebreaker, which means Carolina would basically have a three-game lead with only eight games left.
