Most intimidating fans in the nfl
Since Belichick took over in New England, the Pats have dominated the series with a 23-11 record but Gang Green almost always shows up and delivers a punch.Blood boiled when former Belichick disciple Eric Mangini, after becoming the Jets head coach, started the inquiry into New England’s videotaping practices that became known as “Spygate” in 2007.
Also a lot of Jets and Patriots players have swapped sidelines, including Hall of Fame running back Curtis Martin -- who became a Jets legend after three seasons in New England, and more recently Darrelle Revis (before he came back to the Jets amid tampering chargers).
One constant is their mutual dislike that’s always evident during aggressive contests even when there’s little at stake. And when current players don’t have a flavor for the animosity, fans who’ve worn the jersey their entire lives will remind them.
“I learned about [the rivalry] when I was getting ready to sign here,” former Redskins safety Dashon Goldson said in 2015.
This rivalry started in 1960 when former Redskins owner George Marshall didn’t want the league to award Dallas a franchise for fear that it might interfere with his broadcast interests in the South. cleverly battled back by purchasing the rights to the Redskins’ fight song “Hail to the Redskins” and used it for leverage.
Both franchises have experienced the highest highs with a combined 8 Super Bowl titles and of course some lean years since the height of their dominance in the ‘80s and ‘90s.
"Packers fans are so quick to talk about how many Super Bowls they have won versus our none," one Vikings fan wrote in 2015.
