Rivalries are one of the many things that make sports so great. From the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox in Major League Baseball to the Duke Blue Devils and the North Carolina Tar Heels in NCAA college basketball, every single sport in the country—and, hell, every single sport in the world—has at least one or two major rivalries that make things interesting every time two teams play. But these days, there are also a number of rivalries that have become embarrassingly one-sided. That is to say that the teams involved in the rivalry are only rivals because history says they are. But their recent match-ups suggest otherwise.

The Green Bay Packers and the Detroit Lions, who are set to play at Lambeau Field today, are a good example of this. They have been divisional rivals since 1933 and have the longest-running rivalry in the NFL. But since the 2000-01 NFL season, the Packers are 22-4—yes, 22-4!—against the Lions. Green Bay has been so dominant that their rivalry with the Lions has suffered and people don't really even consider them rivals anymore. But the Packers and Lions aren't the only two teams who have a bad rivalry right now. So as they prepare to take the field in an attempt to rekindle their rivalry, we've put together a list of The Worst "Rivalries" in Sports Today.
