You're kidding, right?
It ain't got a thing to do with rivalries. It's got everything to with national TV ratings. That's why the Cowboys will probably get 3 MNFs, even if they're a bad team. They have a national following. The Texans don't. The only way for the Texans to get a national following, is to force their way onto a national TV. The only way to do that is to get into the playoffs. That gets the exposure, and that gets the respect.
