As I've pointed out before, it was the same idiotic schedule that had them playing in Foxboro for three consecutive years ('04, '05, '06).
Basically, they decided that from 2002 to 2009, when two divisions didn't play each other, they'd have the same matchup in both intervening years. In other words, for the AFC East and AFC South:
2002 East 1 @ South 1
2003 divisions play
2004 South 1 @ East 1
2005 South 1 @ East 1
2006 divisions play
2007 East 1 @ South 1
2008 East 1 @ South 1
2009 divisions play
