In the highly unlikely event that Portland ends up with an NFL team, I would guess a new Seattle/Portland rivalry would form.
(From personal experience, there a very strong Buffalo Bills fan base from where I lived in Rochester, NY and east of where I lived in Syracuse. So out-of-town fan bases within a 2-3 hour drive from a professional team's venue is not unusual.)
