WhoShouldYouRootAgainstInTheNFLPlayoffs

Who should you root against in the NFL playoffs?

Fire up your barbecue and fill your cooler with beer - the NFL playoffs are here. If you're reading this, then you're clearly not avoiding football news, which means your team probably made the cut. You know who to root for. Now, who should you root against?

In football, knowing who to hate is just as important as knowing who to love. After all, the only thing better than watching your team win is watching your most hated rival loose -- kind of like watching a Laker game if you live anywhere outside Southern California. A clear, frontrunner nemesis can double your enjoyment of the NFL playoff schedule - that is, unless your most hated team wins it all.

You may think you know who to root against the most (we're looking at you, Seahawks and Niners fans). However, while being a fan is based on pure, simple feelings such as love and loyalty, the reasons for disliking complete strangers tend to be varied and complex. Your hatred could be fueled by a single player, a team's traditions or a city's boisterous fans. Our short quiz can help you make sense of these feelings and provide you with an NFL nemesis for this playoff season.
