8. Seattle Seahawks vs. San Francisco 49ers
Even though the Seahawks and 49ers only became divisional foes in 2002, the rivalry dates back to 1976 and has been one of the most intense in football.

The 49ers and Seahawks were two of the best teams in football from 2012-2014 and things culminted with an intense NFC championship game in 2013 that saw the Seahawks come out victorious after a game-ending interception by Seattle. Adding to the intensity was the fact that Harbaugh previously coached against Pete Carroll when the two were in the Pac-12 in college football at Stanford and USC, respectively.
