The Detroit Lions and Cleveland Browns were 4-5 that year; both were the eighth seed in their conference. The first non-strike team to make the playoffs with a losing record is the 2010 Seattle Seahawks, who were 7-9. Despite being the butt of jokes and being pitted against the defending Super Bowl champions in the first round of the playoffs, they had home field advantage due to winning their division and beat the Saints 41-36 in one of the biggest upsets in NFL playoff history.
