There was a stretch of the season with 28 teams that the last place finishers of the 2 divisions with 5 teams each played a home and away schedule. The previous year's worst teams in the NFC were Dallas and Tampa. It just worked out that the games were 2 weeks apart. It has happened for division rival games too.
