    What are the two best rivalries in the NFL? I would think there would be a lot of Steelers-Ravens responses if I asked for only one so that's why I asked what are the two best rivalries in the NFL.

    Used to be Steelers /Browns. They had some wars during the '70's/early 80's. I really hope the Browns can get back to competitive again. Looks like they may be on the way. They sure got hosed by the officials against Oakland.

    Falcons-Saints have been fun to watch for awhile now.

    Hmm, this is a tough one.

    It's difficult since the players constantly change, but I would probably say historically my top three would be
    Giants-Eagles
    Raiders-Broncos
    Steelers-Ravens

    Steelers vs Ravens. Their games are mostly close. And they both have defeated each other in a playoff game at least once.

    2008 AFC Championship Game
    Steelers- 23/Ravens- 14

    2010 AFC Divisional Game
    Steelers- 30/Ravens- 24

    2014 AFC Wildcard Game
    Ravens- 30/Steelers- 17

    I miss the old Steelers Houston Oilers rivalry.

    Chuck Noll and Bum Philips just flat out did not like each other at all. It made for some great competition.

    I remember Noll not liking J. Glainville. He didn't like Bum either?

    I don't think the Emperor minded Bum, I think it was Jerry Glanville who he didn't like.

    Number 1 rivalry today is Steelers-Ravens. That's not just my opinion, a majority of NFL fans would say the same.

    The second biggest rivalry in my opinion? Ehhh... It's a toss up between Falcons-Saints or Vikings Packers. :shrug:

    The bottom line is these rivalries come and go. Remember the 49ers-Seahawks rivalry? a few seasons ago I would have ranked that one the best in the league but today it's barely a blip on the radar.
