Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Patriots vs Jets

Rival Team: New York Jets

The rivalry between the Patriots and Jets is comparable to the fierce Red Sox-Yankees matchup in baseball. The two teams have been playing twice a year since the start of the American Football League, and as a result of the two cities, strong animosity towards each other have developed a strong rivalry over the years. The rivalry encompasses players, coaches, and fans making it not only one of the fiercest in the AFC East, but also the NFL.

Patriots vs Bills

Rival Team: Buffalo Bills

The Patriots and Bills have been squaring off on the gridiron since the AFL’s inception in 1960 making it one of the longest-running rivalries in the AFC. Up until recently the rivalry between these two northeastern foes was among the closets in the NFL, however, with the arrival of Bill Belichick and Tom Brady, the Pats have dominated recent meetings taking a 69-42-1 lead in the all-time series. If you’re a Pats fan looking to see your team take down a rival than there is no better game to attend than when the Buffalo Bills are in town.

Patriots vs Dolphins

Rival Team: Miami Dolphins

These two AFC East rivals have been going at it since the Dolphins joined the AFL in 1966. Recently the Patriots have gotten the better of everyone in the AFC East, and the Dolphins are no exception having won every AFC East title since 2003 with the lone exception of 2008, which was won by the Dolphins. Come prepared for a hard fought contest whenever the Dolphins are in town, as the Fins don’t like to go down easy.

Patriots vs Colts

Rival Team: Indianapolis Colts

The Pats-Colts rivalry is considered one of the most heated in the modern football era. The two teams have combined for five Super Bowl victories and eight AFC Championships since 2001. Those numbers speak to how to dominate these two organizations have been over the past two decades, which is what truly fueled the fire between these two rivals. You can’t go wrong when it comes to this match up if you have the opportunity to enjoy a Pats-Colts game you will not be disappointed.
