There have been several great pairings of quarterback and pass-catcher in NFL history, and today we rank the top 30 duos in NFL history.

There are many great duos in the world. Peanut butter and Jelly, Batman and Robin- you get the point.  There have also been many great duos throughout the history of the NFL, and today we look at the best duos in NFL history.

Who are the best duos in NFL history?

30. Daryle Lamonica and Fred Biletnikoff

This might be the best name duo on the entire list. Lamonica and Biletnikoff are one of three Raiders duos on the list, and they were the first great pairing that team had.

Lamonica became a Raider in 1967. That season, he was an All-Pro, leading the league in touchdown passes with 30. Biletnikoff led the league with 21.9 yards per reception, and also pulled in 40 catches for 876 yards and five touchdowns.

Biletnikoff was an All-Pro in 1969. He caught 54 passes for over 800 yards and 12 touchdowns. Lamonica was an All-Pro, as well. He led the league with 34 touchdown passes , as well as throwing for 3,302 yards. Among other stats, he led in both completions and attempts, as well.

The duo of Lamonica and Biletnikoff was ahead of its time. No one was throwing the ball as much as the Raiders, and Biletnikoff was Lamonica’s favorite target. While Lamonica isn;t in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Biletnikoff was inducted in 1988. He played with several great quarterbacks throughout his career, but Lamonica was the first. It was a sign of things to come for the Raiders, as the next two decades would be very kind to them.
