There are tons of rivalries in the NFL and I'm going to be talking about what I think are the top three. Some of these rivalries might be from decades ago, and some might be from recent years. The three that I think might be the top three are the Baltimore Ravens versus the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Dallas Cowboys versus the Washington Redskins, and the Green Bay Packers versus the Chicago Bears.
I think the best rivalry is the Baltimore Ravens and the Pittsburgh Steelers. It is the hardest fought battle every time they play, and the rivalry goes back since the Baltimore Ravens began, which was 17 years ago. They both are very good teams pretty much every year, which keeps the rivalry strong. They are often playoff contenders every year.
I think the second best rivalry is the Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears. This rivalry goes back 92 years and is the longest in the NFL. They are both outstanding teams that have been around since professional football leagues were created. They both have won a lot of championships. In recent years, they continue to have outstanding teams and performances.
The last rivalry, and the third best in my opinion, is the Dallas Cowboys and the Washington Redskins. This one isn't as long as the Packers and Bears, but not as new as the Ravens and Steelers. This rivalry has been around for 53 years. Even though there have been years where the teams haven't been that good, their rivalry games are still hard fought and fun to watch.
I think these are the top three rivalries in the NFL.
