What is the oldest rivalry in the NFL?

There are very many rivals in the NFL. The most intense rivalry in the NFL has its title shared with multiple teams. These teams are the Colts and Patriots, the Browns and Steelers, the Browns and Bengals, the Vikings and Packers, the Patriots and the Dolphins, the 49ers and the Bears, the Packers and the Bears, the Eagles and the Cowboys, the Eagles and the Giants, and the Dolphins and 49ers. There are many other strong rivals, those are just some of them. The most intense is probably the Eagles and Cowboys or the Browns and Bengals. The most injuring is the 49ers and Bears or Vikings and Packers, especially now with Favre and Rodgers becoming a superstar. The closest is either the Browns and Steelers, the Browns and Bengals, the Eagles and Cowboys, or the 49ers and Bears. Many people could dispute this and this is just my opinion.
