Top Sports Rivalries of All Time
New England Patriots vs New York Jets
The Jets-Pats rivalry has been a huge story for the past few seasons with Spygate, the Mangini-Belichick feud, Rex Ryan, Antonio Cromartie, Wes Welker, among other things. Not to mention constantly terribly overhyped games in the past half decade. But the bad blood really started to boil in the mid-1990 s when Bill Parcells left the Patriots to take over the Jets followed by Bill Belichick doing the same switcheroo (in reverse) four years later. It made perfect sense that the first time Parcells Jets faced the Pats, in Foxboro, overtime was needed in one of the most thrilling games of the 1997 season.
