This could be the greatest rivalry in all of sports since Frazier vs. Ali.
Forget the Yankees and Red Sox, Celtics and Lakers and Duke and North Carolina.
This is Da Bears Vs. The Pack.
This NFC North rivalry holds the title as the nation’s longest and most intense rivalry, with the beginnings going back to 1921. Both squads have met in the playoffs as well with the Packers winning the 2011 NFC title game en route to a Super Bowl run.
