This is an article originally published on JagNation.com that will make you smile - at least parts of it....

The game is Sunday, December 30th. Week 17. In the sure-to-be-decorated "Battle Red" war ensemble known as Reliant Stadium. The Texans. Sure, the Jaguars get their first taste of the Texans on October 14th, but the game at Reliant is sure to be dreaded by most hardcore Jaguars fans.

It goes on to recap the history between the Jags and the Texans - a nice history for us, anyway.

W ill this be the year that the Jaguars figure out how to win decisively against the Texans, or will a much-improved Texans team on offense and defense continue to baffle the Jaguars?


I love the "much improved Texans team" part.:splits:

Even though our existence is still relatively short, there is no mistaken that the Texans and Jaguars have quickly become a rivalry. :bat:

That in itselef is kinda interesting to me. I always thought that Houston-Tennessee would be the big rivarly, but for a rivarly to work, it has to be somewhat even. Tennessee is 7-2 against us right now(including the sweep last year), we lead the jags 6-4, and Colts lead us 9-1.

Exactly. 9-1 (to the Colts) means we may as well not even be in the building on game day. Hopefully we can add another win this season to that and start to show a pulse against them. Two wins against them would make a huge difference obviously. Right now there are few things in our division that I want more than wins against the Colts.

Coming in a close second is wins against the Teets. 8-2 against them isn't much better than our record against the Colts and the sweep last season at the hands of Vince Young didn't help. As much as I want wins against the Colts I feel like the Texans desperately need wins against Tennessee. Last season I fully expected the Texans to find a way to beat them twice. I thought we'd be sitting at 4-6 against them (firmly in rivalry territory) and instead we got swept? Those were easily the two most heartbreaking losses of the year IMO.

Then you get the Jags. We lead them 6-4 as you noted but I just can't bring myself to care about playing Jacksonville. I didn't care about Jacksonville when they joined the AFC Central back in the day and I still don't care about Jacksonville. The one team we have a decent rivalry against in this league happens to be the one team I could care less about seeing my team play.

Rivalry-Smivalry, Tennessee will always be at the top of the games I most want to win. For some reason, I just can't hate the Colts.

**sigh** I still miss Oilers-Steelers. THAT was a rivalry.

The Texans-Jaguars game is the most underrated rivalry. Even to the fans. Well, Texans fans anyway. Tennessee has importance, sure, but the players don't hate each other, like they should in a rivalry. The Texans and Jaguars...there's hate there, there's a real rivalry.

I dont think we coulda had an odd number of games against the Titans. ;)

those were the days...that whole division was a rivalry. Every single game the Oilers had with Cleveland, Cincinatti, and Pittsburgh was a rivalry game. I guess Cincy wasn't as big of one, because they sucked for so long, but the other two definately were rivals, with the Steelers being the biggest one. It used to piss me off that the Oilers would have a better record than the other divisional winners, but wouldn't make the playoffs because Pittsburgh won their division. That was one of the main reasons for starting the wild card.
