Rivaled .. 1. Jags - because of their fans mostly (99.5% of them anyway)
... as for the team itself, they will need to step it up a notch if they want to rival us!
Hated .. 2. Colts - because they are so standoff-ish and unloveable.

Jags hands down. It is sure fun to post SCOREBOARD, OWNED or 41-6 over on their homey board. Sure starches their panties. :woot
Grid, Sassy, Wolf and TMac make great points. I like the rabidity (is that a real word?) of Texans Pride.
David had a great one liner about Jags and Xmas cards. Can't remember it verbatim, but it was good. Kinda summed up how our boys felt about the Teal Litterbox.

There can't be a rivalry between two teams that play each other once every 4 years. Heated, yes...but not with that playing gap.

Rivalries are built within the conference....and Jax gets the vote from me.

Exactly. The geography and rivalry as the 2 biggest Texas metros competing for Fortune 500 HDQs amoung other things is there and that created the potential for an NFL rivalry, but the teams being in different conference makes all those factors moot.

The Texans most hated rival to date has to be the Jacksonville Jaguars.They play dirty and claim that we do the same.I hate the Cowboys more than any team in any sport personally.

Thumbs up next year's record

I think next year, the Texans are looking at 10-6 with one playoff win.

Jags

We claim they play dirty
They claim we play dirty

We think it's a rivalry
They dont think it's a rivalry

Game 1: Texans 20 Jaguars 6
Game 2: Texans 21 Jaguars 0

Maybe someone should start telling Jacksonville to take it like a rivalry...

Honestly, you don't have a rival yet. A "rival" in the traditional sense goes both ways. What team hates you as equally as you hate them?

Dallas? We were embarrassed to lose to you 19-10 in your first game but that had more to do with losing to an expansion team...not an expansion team from Houston.

Tennessee? They took your team but what have you taken from them?

Jacksonville? They offered several players in the expansion draft and play in the same division but that doesn't make a "rivalry".

New England? Can't say they're a rival because you don't like their fans. That would make them the rival for just about every team in the league. Nobody likes their fans.

In the end, I think y'all are going to have a tremendous rivalry between the Titans and Jaguars. It's just going to take time.

The Titans are the Texans' main rival. Followed by Jacksonville.

The inaugural season-opener for the Houston Texans: Beat the Cowboys. How could life be any sweeter?

Dallas and Houston will always be rivals no matter what. No matter what sport it is, Dallas and Houston will always be that way.

Tennessee wasn't really a rivalry until this year when we ripped them a new one. I don't think they're too happy with us after this season. So we're kinda, sorta rivals.

Jacksonville is DEFINITELY our biggest rival. We may not have taken or given much to them but both teams seem to play harder. Every game is a dog fight with a play-off atmosphere.

As far as New England goes, it's more like a friendly competition that brings out the best in both teams. The Pats know they have to bring their "A" game or get punched in the mouth. And they help us by bringing out our full potential.

So in the end:
-We will never like Dallas. (unless they take football away from us again!)
-Don't really care about Tennessee.
-Love hating and pounding on Jacksonville.
-Love watching New England barely escape with their lives

well huge the question is what is OUR biggest rival. SO .. while we may not yet have a "traditional" rivalry.. I think most people agree that a rivalry is shaping up between us and Jacksonville. And if things continue on this course.. with us beating up on Jville .. and we eventually make the Playoffs over them.. I think they are going to start hating us just as much as we hate them .

I don't understand why people get so upset with other teams "running up the score" (not directing this towards you texansrule2222). If you don't like the team scoring on you. . . STOP THEM....This is football, not polo, this is not a gentleman's game.

And as much as I would love for it to be the Colts, it just can't be.......We do nothing to keep them from doing anything....It's like a scrimmage for them when they play us, but that will soon change! :woot

My Bad. Its the Titans and Cowboys. No question.
When we play these two teams it has nothing to do with stats, records, etc. but with pride and pride alone. Those 2 teams are the texans most hated teams along with us being theres. Still thing this thread is point-less since everyone knows this already!!
