What would be considered to be bona fide rivalries between NFL teams?|
Here's just a few that I know of:
Steelers-Browns is a classic, and the Steelers and Ravens has evolved into a bit of one since they used to be Cleveland. Anyone who says Pittsburgh and Cincinnati are rivals doesn't know what they're talking about.
Also, I would argue that the Jets and Patriots are more of a classic rivalry. Additionally, Philly and Dallas and the NY Giants and Dallas, so pretty much every one in the East and Dallas are rivals.
Also, Packers-Lions are not as big as Packers-Vikings, but they still could qualify. Another important one is the Chiefs and the Raiders. And we can't forget about the Bills-Dolphins either.

49ers-Rams, that will never die. Or the Broncos-Chargers, although some might say Broncos-Raiders, and you guys need to go a little old school past Bears-Packers, and a new age battle; Titans-Jaguars or Texans-Jaguars.
Hey, what would the NFL be without intense, good ol' rivalries?
Certainly makes it exciting:)
and 10-15 years ago it was 49ers-Cowbows all the time.
Cleveland vs. Pittsburgh
Dallas vs. San Fransico (use to be anyways)
Any teams from the black and blue division
Raiders vs. Chiefs
