Default Biggest Rival Outside the AFC North?

I think it was the Raiders in the 70's, Cowboys in the 70's and 90's, Pats for 2001-2005, but now i think it is starting to become the Jaguars for this part of the 2000's, what do you think?

For the older fans it is the Cowboys or Raiders...Especially the ones that grew up in the 70s...I wasn't alive for those years....born in 79.....

But I would go with the Pats or the Jags.......Pats beat us in two AFC title games and really Brady has had a ton of success against us......Which totally ticks me off.

As for the Jags...The rivalry started with their days in the old AFC Central...They always have played the Steelers tough.....The Steelers have historically struggled in Jax. as well.....The Steelers currently have a four game losing streak to the Jags...Which adds to the rivalry.......Plus we play again this year...

Right now it's the Pats and Jags. They have our number.

Pats for reasons already mentioned.

Jaguars because they always seem to find a way to beat us. Jacksonville has been a thorn for years. Wether it's Maddox playing the worst game of his life and handing them the game in '05, last year's close loss, or Fred Taylor, they just win. Why can't we beat them, I don't know.

Steelers play both teams again this year. We have to beat them.

jags games are always great.. one of the best throwback matchups of this era if you ask me. i watch every game on tv in the nfl, and i really cannot find any other games that matches the physicalness of jags-steelers.

Yep. Definitely the Jaguars.

As for the Patriots, I used 2 feel the same way until that whole cheating thing surfaced. Which means they didn't beat us fair & square.

I would have to say jags also especially after the playoff game last year.

Have to agree, the Jaguars. If we played Tennessee more often then they would run a close 2nd. I hate Jeff Fisher and the Titans/Oilers, we've had some pretty good battles with them as well.

I'd say its the Jaguars as well. They've had our number as of late, and its always a batter when we play them.

It seems that we play the Jags every year. Also, their team is built just like ours.
