A rivalry is defined as “competition for the same objective or for superiority in the same field.” For the Buffalo Bills, the quest for superiority has hit a number of roadblocks over the years - most notably in the form of Tom Brady, Bill Belichick, and the New England Patriots.
But for the Bills and their fans, are the Patriots the team’s greatest rivals? Many may argue that the Miami Dolphins have always been the Bills biggest rivals - fondly remembering match-ups between Jim Kelly and Dan Marino or even Ralph Wilson’s rejection in South Florida more than 50 years ago. Others may consider the New York Jets to be the team’s rival, based on some overlapping geography of the fan base along with a shared mediocrity in recent years.
Which AFC East team do you consider to be the Bills biggest rival? Is there a team outside the division that should be a part of the discussion? Be sure to share your thoughts and comments below.
