I have to disagree with that. The similarities are there, but the colts/pats thing hasn't gone on near as long as the steelers/raiders thing did.

No two teams have ever beaten up on each other or played such brutal, passionate football as the Raiders/Steelers of that era. I still love to play the Steelers. It isn't what it once was, but If you are an older fan and remember those days, it still gets your heart rate up.

The Pats/Colts have a ways to go before they ever reach that status.

As sad as it is, you'll never see that thought beat-em-up style of football again, so this is probably the closest thing we'll have to the Steelers/Raiders for a while. Just because it hasn't gone as long doesn't mean anything, compare this to the first 4 or 5 years of the Steelers/Raiders.

I agree... we will never see that kind of football again.I don't think the Colts/Pats qualify just yet. The Steelers/Raiders rivalry was damn near a decade long... untill the Colts/Pats keep it going for a couple of more years, I don't think it stands up to the Raiders/Steelers........ yet.

This is a rivalry. http://www.greatsportsrivalries.com/70s/team70s.html

I thought this was about the best rivalries in the NFL right now?

Steelers/Raiders certainly was a huge rivalry - and historically maybe we aren't quite up there yet - but the Patriots/Colts have packed alot of drama into 4/5 years.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

I am very surprise no one said Browns vs Bengals. Remember back when Brown started coaching the Browns first, then got fired and he went off and help create the Bengals which after he named the stadium Paul Brown and created dang near the same away and home jerseys as the Browns and was a Heated Rivalry for very long time with Brown having it out for the Browns.

Every AFC North is a heated rivalry tho now a days. Bengals and Steelers of lately has been bad blood.

I noticed the Steelers have developed a rivalry with a lot of teams.

The AFC North rivalries need no explanation. The Browns, Bengals, and Ravens all treat the Steelers with great distain. Sure, all three hate each other, but their individual hatred for the Steelers is incredible. All Three teams had players/coaches that took potshots at the Steelers, the players, and the fans in the media in recent years.

Other teams I noticed:
Titans/Oilers
Jaguars
Raiders
Cowboys
Bills (Esp. in the Early 90's)

I think that the Steelers right now biggest rival in the AFC North is the Bengals, but the Ravens are the team that we need to beat to be Division Champs. The all-time best rivalry for the Steelers has to be the Browns though. Out of division has to be a draw between the Raiders and Cowboys in my heart.
