How often is it cheaper to fly a NW-codeshare on CO than CO?

I was checking out some itineraries for February and saw that Continental was much more expensive than the other carriers. (No surprise there.)

When I explored who offered the most reasonable fares, it was Northwest. (Roughly 70% cheaper than CO.)

Then when I explored the flight options with NW, I saw that it was actually CO metal being flown with a NW codeshare flight #.

This was the first time I've ever seen such a phenomena --does it happen frequently? Maybe I just don't fly to many places where NW/CO both fly.
