The Pittsburgh Steelers are playoff bound after finishing second in the AFC North, which extends one of the most impressive streaks in NFL history. Pittsburgh has not finished last in its division since 1988.
Therefore, the Steelers have only finished as poorly as third in a four-team division over the last 33 years, and they have only done that eight times during that stretch.
They did finish fourth in the six-team AFC Central when the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars were temporarily added in 1999, but were still two spots removed from last place.
Pittsburgh last finished worse than second in the AFC North in 2012.
The next closest team is the New England Patriots, who have not finished last in their respective division since 2000. Green Bay is third. The Packers finished last in the NFC North in 2005.
