Why Raiders vs. Broncos Is the Biggest Rivalry in the NFL

A lot of people will call the Raiders/Chiefs or Cowboys/Giants the biggest rivalry in the NFL. Others will say the Packers/Bears or Steelers/Ravens are the NFL's biggest all-time rivalry.

The Packers/Bears goes back further than the rest, but they never really played for a whole lot since the merger. Cowboys/Giants is a pretty good one, but since the merger, the Giants were nothing until the mid-'80s.

Raiders/Chiefs goes all the way back to the '60s, as Lamar Hunt and Al Davis feuded but have since fizzled. From the merger until now, the Raiders/Broncos rivalry has withstood the test of time, more so than any other.

The rivalry has had no shortage of highly contested games, meaningful games, controversy and crowd noise.
