Fan Forum: Is Patriots-Colts Rivalry the Best Rivalry in NFL?

Fan Forum: Is Patriots-Colts Rivalry the Best Rivalry in NFL? On Sunday afternoon, the Patriots and Colts will meet in what has become an annual tradition.

While the two teams are not in the same division, the powers that be have spoiled football fans yet again this season, matching up the two perennial AFC powerhouses.

What was once a one-sided showdown with the Patriots seemingly always coming out on top has turned into one of the game's best rivalries. Peyton Manning got over his big-game struggles en route to winning his first Super Bowl and the Colts have started to turn the tables some on the Pats in the past few years.

Adding to that is the significance and importance each game seems to have, while often providing us with memorable conclusions.

Last season, there was the "Fourth-and-2 Game." A few years back, there was Willie McGinest stopping Edgerrin James on the goal line. There was also the epic second-half comeback that propelled Peyton and Co. to the Super Bowl in 2007. And, of course, there's also Ty Law's three-interception game.

And those are all within the last 10 years.

The Patriots and Colts has developed into one of the best rivalries in all of football, even one of the best in all of sports. But, is it the NFL's best rivalry?
