Default Official Rivalry Nicknames: NFL

I'm doing rivalry nicknames for all the major sports. I don't know about you, but I feel that we should have names for all our rivalries to give it more meaning. Here are some of mine:

  • Bills/Jets: "Upstate vs. Downstate"
  • Browns/Ravens: "Art Modell's Doing"
  • Browns/Bengals: "Ohio's Big Orange Showdown"
  • Browns/Steelers: "The Rust Belt Rivalry"
  • Titans/Texans: "Old Houston vs. New Houston"
  • Raiders/Chargers: "California Clash"
  • Cowboys/Redskins: "America's Classic Showdown"
  • Cowboys/49ers: "NFC's Top Dog Show"
  • Cowboys/Eagles: "Hatred at its Finest"
  • Cowboys/Giants: "Big Blue Battle"
  • Cowboys/Steelers: "Battle of the Super Bowl Kings"
  • Cowboys/Texans: "The Texas Shootout"
  • Eagles/Redskins: "Patriotic Clash"
  • Giants/Jets: "The Big Apple Bowl... in Jersey"
  • Bears/Packers: "THE Rivalry"
  • Packers/Vikings: "The Great Northern War"
  • Panthers/Saints: "Tobbacco vs. Gumbo"
  • 49ers/Raiders: "The Bay Area Bowl"
  • Rams/49ers: "The Gold Rush Rivalry"
  • Seahawks/Cardinals: "Western Birdie Battle"

Yeah, there are alot more Cowboys rivalries up there and it's for two reasons: I'm a Cowboy fan, I know all their rivals, and the Cowboys have more rivals than anyone.

Ok, anyone of you have any?

(BTW, Toss Up! returns to close out season one next Thursday.)
