Rivalries make the NFL go 'round.
Let's face it, every year as fans we watch game after game with a 1:32 chance of winning a championship.
No one likes those odds. No one wants those odds.
And the second place award is a trip to heartbreak city with a month of pain for dinner following a Super Bowl loss.
Being an NFL fan or a sports fan in general is really not that good of a deal.
That is why we have to make do with the little things that make football an amazing sport; like watching our rivalry games.
I find nothing more rewarding on Sundays than seeing my Denver Broncos sneak one in over the San Diego Chargers, Oakland Raiders, or Kansas City Chiefs (and for that matter, nothing is worse than watching us lose to one of those teams).
We're lucky enough to get at least six rivalry games a season, just because of division mathematics, and often we'll inflate the importance of other games just because we hate that particular team.
Without rivalries the NFL would just be a 31:32 chance of failure for every fan.
So holding back on further introduction, allow me to present you with the five most under the radar rivalries in the NFL today.
