Pittsburgh Steelers: Top 10 Rivalries in Team History

As we celebrated this past Memorial Day, thoughts of the men and women who have served in combat to defend our nation should be on our mind.

Piggybacking on that theme of remembering service in battle, I thought it would be fun to look back and chronicle the 10 biggest rivals in the 80-year-history of the Steelers.

There are few NFL franchises that can claim the type of history like the Black & Gold. Over the years the Steelers have had their share of great moments against certain teams that stand out; thus the genesis of this feature.

I know that this list is subjective and could send some into a frenzy. It doesn't take much to make a Steelers fan mad, but keep in mind that I took several factors into consideration while compiling the list you are about to read. They include these four, but not necessarily in order of importance:

  • How long the teams have played each other
  • The impact of the games played (Ex: Big playoff meetings or 'historical' moments.)
  • If the series is even or lopsided
  • How many games played between the two teams

I will give you ample reason as to why the teams on the 10-6 list are there, but I will spend more time covering the teams that crack the top 5.

Again, this list is just one man's opinion.

So sit back, crack open a cold beverage and get the fire going on the grill once again. Prepare yourself properly as you digest the 10 greatest rivalries the Pittsburgh Steelers have ever had (and as always, your feedback on the list is welcome).
