wdm1219inpenna Posted August 17, 2009 Share Posted August 17, 2009 For example, it seems like the Rams & Chargers play each other every year. Partly because both used to be LA teams, partly because they both used to look so similar to one another. The Chargers & 49ers play one another because they both have SAN in their name. I realize geography plays a big role too, but like the Chiefs vs Texans, the Chiefs USED to be the Texans, the Patriots & Eagles play one another, both are American symbols, the Raiders & Cowboys play, both have silver helmets, the Jets & Eagles play, both have green as a main color, the Eagles & Steelers play every year because both are in PA, the Lions & Bills play one another often in pre-season it seems because they both have blue animal type logos, the Bills & Bears because both begin with B, the Bucs & Jags because of Florida, likewise when they play the Dolphins, the Dolphins & Falcons play one another it seems because both are from 1966, the Bengals & Saints because both were the last 2 expansion teams before the merger, the Jets vs Rams because Joe Namath was on both teams, Redskins vs Ravens, both start with R, both are in the DC area, Skins & Colts because the Colts used to be in Baltimore, Redskins vs Chiefs because both have an indian motif, Chiefs vs Falcons because they both used to have red helmets, I have this odd obsession to try to figure out why the matchups are what they are in pre-season...the Ravens vs Vikings because both have purple, and so on.....do any of you ever try to see some kind of a pattern with this or am I just a total loon here?
