There have been 9 teams in the modern era (i.e. since 1995) that have started a season 8-0:

'98 Broncos*
'03 Chiefs
'05 Colts
'06 Colts*
'07 Patriots*
'08 Titans
'09 Saints*
'09 Colts*
'11 Packers

Five of those 9 teams would eventually go on to appear in the Super Bowl (indicated by asterisk), the other four would lose in their initial playoff game, always after a bye and always at home.

Here's how the 10 teams rank in point differential:

1. '07 Patriots (+204)*
2. '05 Colts (+131)
3. '09 Saints (+129)*
4. '03 Chiefs (+116)
5. '98 Broncos (+114)*
6. '09 Colts (+109)*
7. '11 Packers (+96)
8. '08 Titans (+96)
9. '12 Falcons (+77)
10. '06 Colts (+59)*

Here's how long their undefeated streaks lasted:

1. '07 Patriots - 16 games*
2. '09 Colts - 14 games*
3. '98 Broncos - 13 games*
4. '05 Colts - 13 games
5. '09 Saints - 13 games*
6. '11 Packers - 13 games
7. '08 Titans - 10 games
8. '03 Chiefs - 9 games
9. '06 Colts - 9 games*

You know, I never expected to be undefeated to this point. I also don't expect to go 16-0. 8 and 8 is staring us in the face. :lol:

I sincerely hope that the lack of respect carries us straight to and through the Superbowl. 19-0... Not in my wildest dreams.

Should we also take note that the 03 Chiefs, who didn't make the Super Bowl, also had Tony G on the team? :doh:
