If misery can love company, futility can too.
That's a layman's description of a game between two teams that have that number of wins as the NFL season turns the corner for home.
This year its 0-9 Indianapolis against 2-6 Jacksonville in the unofficial race for the number one pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.
As it has all season long, the true futility rested with the team in the blue.
Jacksonville score 14 unanswered points in the second half to pick up a 17-3 victory Sunday afternoon, sending the Colts to their tenth consecutive loss. Its the most consecutive losses to start a season since 1997-which is the same start that team had.
Thanks to a Miami win over Washington, the Colts are now the worst team in the league by a full two games.
The benchmark for the contest was set on the team's opening drive, when both teams committed turnovers before the completion of a series. Curtis Painter threw his first toss of the game off target and into the hands of Drew Coleman who completed the pick.
Then it became into a battle of kickers. Josh Scobee was the first to strike by booting a 44-yard field goal to give the Jaguars the lead in the first quarter. Adam Vinatieri matched that when a Colts eight-play 60 yard drive stalled out, making a 42-yard field goal to even things at three.
Jacksonville had a chance late in the half to tie it up, but Scobee missed a 45-yard field goal to keep the game tied at the break.
In the third, the Jaguars wouldn't miss their chance to punch it in after a long drive. Gabbert completed an 11-yard touchdown pass to Jarett Dillard to cap a 16-play, 91-yard march down the field to give Jacksonville a 10-3 lead.
With two interceptions on the game, Dan Orlovsky relieved a struggling Painter in the fourth quarter after he went 13-of-19 for 94 yards. Orlovsky didn't fare much better, losing a fumble on his opening series when he was hit by Jeremy Mincey while passing, which the Jaguars recovered inside the Colts' ten-yard line.
Maurice Jones-Drew punched it into the endzone three plays later to seal the Colts' tenth consecutive loss in 2011.
