Context on 2008 Titans vs. 2009 Titans

Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky

From Jeremy Lundblad of ESPN Stats & Information:

Since the merger in 1970, the Titans are only the second team to start a season 0-4 in the year following at least a 10-0 start.

The 1999 Broncos began the year 0-4 the season following a 13-0 start

That's not a club you want to join.

Those Broncos won their fifth game, at Oakland. If the Titans lose Sunday in Nashville to Indianapolis, they'll be the first team since the AFL-NFL merger to start one season 10-0 or better and begin the next 0-5.

Prefer to look at the one positive possible example?

The 1992 Chargers are the one team in history that's gone to the playoffs after an 0-4 start.
