Though they are in different conferences, the Pittsburgh Steelers and Philadelphia Eagles have an underrated, understated and passionate rivalry. 

The "Keystone Clash" elicits a stark division amongst Pennsylvanians.  While I will not hyperbolize their games as a Civil War, the two teams' meetings certainly mark a civil struggle between east and west, a throwdown whose prize is at least four years worth of bragging rights.

Rowdy college bars across PA be damned!  In the hearts of loyal fans on rare Steelers-Eagles Sundays, everything can burn!  Thankfully, all Pennsylvania architecture, landmarks, and... well, civilization... has remained intact following their meetings.  Or, more accurately, at least it has of record!

Nevertheless, the closer or more impactful the contest between the two, the more volatile things become between both impassioned fan bases.  Steelers fans wants the Eagles to be "green with envy," while Philadelphians would love nothing more than to make the Black and Gold a lil' black n' blue! 

Though the two teams met numerous times prior to the AFL-NFL merger, this countdown focuses on the rivals' time as interconference foes, 1970-date.  Disproving the notion that absence makes the heart grow fonder, these intermittent nature of these squads' games in today's NFL makes each match more vitriolic...and meaningful!

Sadly for Steeler Nation, the Eagles have won the majority of the contests. 

So, which five modern contests have come closest to rendering society in PA into utter anarchist chaos?

Or, to state it in a less sensationalized manner, which are the five best installments of the "Keystone Clash"?
