    Re: Top 10 NFL rivalries

    I'd have to say Chiefs/Raiders is the most intense. The hatred goes from the owner to the coaches and players, then the fans. If KC was closer to Oakland, I'm sure there would be a lot less Chief fans walking around today. There is pure hate and its wierd because a lot of personel has gone from one team to the other. Its funny because I can't stand either team or either fan base but that rivalry is serious.

    Re: Top 10 NFL rivalries

    raiders/cheifs, vikes/pack, and eagles/cowboys (not even mentioned) are the most relevant rivalries as of now. being from around philly, when the cows come in, there is more hate than in the middle east.

    another young rivalry would be broncos/colts...the battle of the barn! (i think i'll copywrite that).

    two obvious rivalrys missing is

    bengals steelers: when bill cower said who dey? we dey! after the superbowl and the hit on carson palmer just made this rivalry more intense.

    pats colts: this game has decide who moves on in the playoffs alot and even though the pats easily control this rivalry it is a rivalry. the colt players hate the pats and likewise. the most intense when buill bellicheck let the grass grow in new england before there game.
    Re: Bengals-Steelers - 1 season does not a rivalry make. The Bungles have been so horrid for so long that there's no way to make a case for this to be a top 10 rivalry with a straight face.

    Re: Pats-Colts - too one-sided to make this a top rivalry, as well as it not being a divisional game, so if it happens at all, its only once a year.

    To be a top rivalry, there need to be 3 factors:
    1. History
    2. Consistently good teams
    3. Bad blood

    Pack-Vikes, Chiefs-Raiders, Cowboys-Redskins. Those rivalries have bucket loads of those factors - that's they they're big-time.

    Re: Top 10 NFL rivalries

    Packers/Bears is overrated ... but I don't think they are picking this rivalry thing based on RIGHT NOW ... or Colts vs. Patriots would have to be on there as well as Cowboys vs. Eagles and the budding Bengals vs. Steelers rivalry would have to be a thought ...
    I think for the history of the game ... this is a pretty solid list though.

    All based on 1 game and the Steelers moving on to win the Super Bowl. I bet if you asked a Cincinnatian which team they truly hated the most, they'd say the Browns - and vice-versa. Intra-state rivalry and all that.
