Now is one of the most exciting times of the year with Fresh Cravings: tailgating and homegating season!  From rivalry game stats to endless game day recipes, Fresh Cravings is determined to make everyone a tailgating or homegating champion this year because we believe every host is a hero.

Impress your friends this tailgating season with some rivalry team game stats, perfect for sharing in between dips!

Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals rivalry is called “The battle of Ohio,” and currently the Bengals lead the series 51-46.

In 1960, the NY Giants and Dallas Cowboys played against each other for the first time with an ending score of 31-31. Since that game, these two teams have been “bitter enemies.”

One of the most well-known rivalries is Steelers vs Cowboys facing each other in 3 Super Bowl Championship games. Starting back in the 70’s, Pittsburgh defeated Dallas to win the Superbowl in 1976 and 1979. Dallas came back to win the title of Super Bowl Champs in 1996 in Tempe, Arizona.

Rivalries tend to bring energetic games with fantastic plays that can change a team’s fate at any moment, like the NY Giants against the Philadelphia Eagles game, when DeSean Jackson made a punt return for a touchdown in the final seconds of the game.

The Green Bay Packers lead the Chicago Bears in the oldest rivalry series 103-95-6 with 204 games played since 1921. These two teams are phenomenally successful franchises with a combined 58 players in the Hall of Fame.
