Crosstown Rivalry - Professional - American Football - Intrastate Rivalries

Intrastate Rivalries

  • Battle of Ohio — Cleveland Browns v Cincinnati Bengals
  • Missouri Governor's Cup — Kansas City Chiefs vs. St. Louis Rams
  • Texas Governor's Cup — Dallas Cowboys vs. Houston Texans and formerly Houston Oilers
  • Pennsylvania rivalries: Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Philadelphia Eagles
  • California rivalries: Oakland Raiders vs. San Francisco 49ers or Oakland Raiders vs. San Diego Chargers. The Raiders and Chargers are division rivals and Raiders and 49ers crosstown rivals.
  • Florida rivalries: Miami Dolphins vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
  • Maryland rivalries: Washington Redskins vs. Baltimore Ravens. Since 1997, the Redskins have played not in Washington, D.C. but at FedExField in Landover, Maryland. (Note: The Redskins' prior rivalry with the Baltimore Colts would not count toward this, since during that time, the Redskins played at Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium, which was indeed in the District of Columbia and not in Maryland.)
  • New York rivalries: The rivalry between the Jets and/or Giants and Buffalo Bills is an intrastate rivalry in name only, as both the Jets and Giants do not play in New York anymore but in New Jersey, though all three currently have training camp in the upstate New York region. However, when the Jets played in Shea Stadium, and for the three years where the Bills were in the NFL and the Giants played in Yankee Stadium, those were intrastate rivalries.
