The longest running NFL rivalry is the rivalry between the Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers, which started in 1921. The rivalry is credited for the first ever ejections of players for fighting during an NFL game, which occurred between a Bear and Packer player in 1924. The Bears and the Packers, overall, are the NFL’s two most successful franchises in terms of their records.
The two teams have played 186 games against one another, which is more than any other two teams in NFL history. Though the Packers have won 88 of these games, the Bears have won 92 of them, putting them slightly in the lead. It’s not a shock at all that people rush to get a Chicago Bears tire cover or a new jersey whenever there’s a Bears-Packers game about to be on.
2012 was a turbulent year for Detroit Tigers baseball fans; in the first half of the 2012 season, the Tigers did alright. By the midway point, they were at 39-42, though the team did considerably better during the second half of the season. They in fact did so well that they ended the season with an 88-74 record and won the American League pennant.
However, when it came to the 2012 World Series, the Tigers did not do particularly well at all. They were faced against the Giants and lost four games to none; they were shut out twice, which was as many times as they had been shut out in the entire regular season. Regardless, fans still sported a Detroit Tigers tire cover or jersey to show their support.
The Chicago Bears football team was truly at their best when they were under head coach Mike Ditka in the 1985 season. During that season, the team became the second NFL team of all time to win fifteen regular season games. They also wound up winning Super Bowl XX during this year and their defense was the stuff of legends.
The 1985 Chicago Bears season is still regarded as one of the top seasons of any NFL team of all time, based on their incredible scoring margin, back-to-back playoff shutouts, and nine Pro Bowlers. Anyone who owns a Chicago Bears black tire cover or a jersey, even as the team struggles now, can remember back to a time where the team was at the height of the NFL.
