MEXICO – This weekend we will face Tom Brady and Ben Roethlisberger, two of the best quarterbacks of their generation, who have shared seven of the last 10 Super Bowl rings won by the AFC, however , their rivalry is not considered among the best in the NFL.
Here is a list of the most remembered rivalries in the history of the league and in which Brady and Roethlisberger undoubtedly still have the chance to appear:

1. JOE MONTANA VS. DAN MARINO
The San Francisco 49ers and Miami Dolphins do not usually face each other very often, however, Joe Montana and Dan Marino managed to establish a good rivalry despite only facing twice in their careers.

The balance of the clashes between Montana and Marino was 1-1 but if we must decree a winner it was without a doubt Montana, who took the victory in Super Bowl XIX.
Despite being two very different quarterbacks, some used to compare Montana and Marino to put them in the conversation of the best passer of all time, with one winning titles and the other putting in his name multiple NFL records, and always There was hope that they would meet again in the grid something that never happened again after that Super Bowl. Montana also had some crosses with John Elway, even in Super Bowl XXIV, but he never managed to establish himself as a true rivalry.

2. STEVE YOUNG VS. TROY AIKMAN
There was a time when the 49ers and Dallas Cowboys dominated the NFL in the early 1990s and marked their rivalry by meeting three times in the NFC Championship Game. The balance of those duels was favorable for Dallas (2-1.
The rivalry between Young and Aikman handed out three Super Bowl rings.

3. ROGER STAUBACH VS. TERRY BRADSHAW
Fans of the Cowboys and Pittsburgh Steelers must be very aware of these faces after they met twice in the Super Bowl, both victories for Pittsburgh.

4. JOHNNY UNITAS VS. JOE NAMATH
Super Bowl III will always be remembered for the words of Joe Namath guaranteeing that his New York Jets would beat Johnny Unitas’ extensive Baltimore Colts favorites, although the latter played.
Unitas represented the field marshals of yesteryear, disciplined, military cut, well dressed while Namath was the opposite, with long hair and casual clothing was a favorite of the magazines. In their most memorable duel, Unitas and Namath combined to throw for 872 yards in a game that tilted for the Jets with six touchdown passes from Namath.
