Ah, the NFL season is back! Officially, the regular season starts on Sept. 7, when the Chiefs travel to New England to take on the Patriots in Thursday night action, but for a month now, fans have enjoyed training camp and pre-season games.
Unless you’re a Giants fan. In that case, you had quite a scare last weekend.

People are planning their trips to away games to see their favorite teams take on their most heated rivals and sometimes those rivalries go far beyond the fans.
Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant found out firsthand how ruthless Big Blue fans can really be after leaving a $75 tip at a Blaze Pizza recently.

Obviously, a “thank you,” would have sufficed.
But we get it; the Giants and Cowboys are fierce rivals, as are the Cowboys and Redskins, Giants and Redskins, Eagles and Cowboys…
Okay, the entire NFC East can’t stand each other.

The same can be said for the NFC North.
While the Bears and Packers have been at each other’s throats for almost a century and it’s not so much of a rivalry when one side has won 12 of the last 15 meetings (Sorry, Chicago), you can’t tell the fine folks in the Midwest this.
And that’s perfectly acceptable; rivalries are what makes the NFL, the NFL. That, and money but that’s a different conversation entirely.
