This week, ESPN.com takes a look at the best rivalries in the NFL. Here in the NFC North, we might have seen the season highlight already: Green Bay Packers-Minnesota Vikings at Lambeau Field.
There have been some legendary games even in recent history. A 2002 game ended in an on-field brawl on the Vikings' sideline. In 2004, Vikings receiver Randy Moss performed his infamous Moon over Lambeau routine during a playoff victory. In 2006, the Packers held the Vikings offense to three first downs and 104 total offensive yards.
And who can forget this summer, when the teams' front offices tussled over the future of quarterback Brett Favre?
Since the birth of the NFC North in 2002, the Packers lead the series, 9-5.
Intensity rating: 4
Honorable mention: Green Bay-Chicago
