Looks like as of right now they have Steelers - Ravens as the biggest rivalry in the NFL. There have certainly been some good games.

They included this picture and comment:


This picture says 1,000 words. The league's fiercest rivalry these days involves arguably the NFL's toughest and most hard-hitting defenses, with bone-crushing linebackers like Ray Lewis and James Harrison leading the way. Last season, the Steelers won three very close, physical "bodybag"-type battles of attrition, including the AFC title game. Don't think Lewis has forgotten. Adrian Hasenmayer

They also chose Steelers vs. Titans as #4 with the following comment:

This rivalry has both a little history reaching back to the days when the Pittsburgh Steelers and Houston Oilers were division rivals and current flavor. The heat was turned up in a big way in an already physical rivalry between the two Super Bowl contenders last December, as Lendale White and other Titans celebrated their victory over Pittsburgh by dancing on "Terrible Towels." Steeler feathers were ruffled, but the much-anticipated playoff rematch never materialized when Tennessee lost to Baltimore ... but the NFL took care of that, pitting the two together for the 2009 Thursday night NFL season opener.
