    Does anyone know? I've heard it referenced a few times how rare it is for two 5-0 teams to face-off against each other. I'm wondering if the Colts & Pats go unbeaten until they play if that would be unprecedented.

    You gotta go w-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-ay back to 2004, when the 5-0 Patriots beat the 5-0 Jets 13-7. ;)

    But yeah, if a 7-0 Colts team play an 8-0 Pats team, I also wonder if that would be unprecedented.

    According to this it would be

    (With credit to the original poster)

    2004: Patriots (5-0) 13, Jets (5-0) 7
    1973: Vikings (6-0) 10, Rams (6-0) 9
    1923: Canton Bulldogs (5-0) 7, Chicago Cardinals (5-0) 3
    1921: Buffalo All-Americans (6-0) 0, Akron Pros (7-0) 0

    Very surprising to me that it would happen so seldomly.

    Why do I recall something about the Eagles being 8 - 0 and facing another undefeated team a few years ago? Maybe the other team only had one loss or something.

    I think that was Eagles and Steelers, one was undefeated the other had 1 loss. IIRC, the one loss team won that game.
