I agree it is about as good as it gets right now - while the networks continue to focus on yesteryear rivalries such as Redskins-Cowboys to put in prime time, I am surprised neither Bengals-Steelers game this season made it to NBC, ESPN, or at least the CBS national doubleheader game at 4:15 on Sunday.

What an absolutely GREAT article!!! It is great to see a rival team's fan craft such an excellent read without being biased or sour-graped.

Kudos to you, Mr. Stephens - I really enjoyed your perspective and analysis!

Thanks, SF staff, for providing us with yet another outstanding article!

Great stuff. This is exactly how I feel about this rivalry; it's a sports team rivalry, not a personal hatred for other people. We're going to have between 5 and 10 years with both teams at or near a peak, and we'll probably play 3 times a year for that stretch. AWESOME.

Where I come fromhockey is big and our big Rivalry is the Ottawa Senators VS Toronto Maple Leafs. Even though I'm a huge hockey fan as well, nothing in hockey campares to the NFL and definitely not like the rivalry between these two teams, that's most likely why they scheduele them to gether twice.

I can't wait for this Sunday!

Thanks. I enjoyed that. Evidence that there are decent Bengal fans...they just aren't usually as vocal as the idiots!

Yeah, now, but the NHL used to have some of the best rivalries in sports when it had only 6 teams. The Bruins/Rangers games were like a war.

Ypu're right and it still does. The only thing there isn't as much build up as the NFL, cause you play the rivalry like 12 times a year. After that many times it kind of loses it's lustre.
