For now, I have to say our big rivalry is with the Colts since we are trying to get a playoff spot this season. Of course there is always room for blood rivals like the flaming thumbtacs and the Cowboy Cheerleaders.

Dallas/Houston - Yes

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
Agreed. I think a rivalry with Jacksonville will grow into something bigger than that of Tennessee because of the rising status of Houston and Jacksonville. The Titans are rapidly becoming what will be known as the whipping post for the other teams in the AFC South. Games between Houston and Tennessee just won't mean much in the near future because not much will be riding on it. But games between the Texans and Jags could determine the AFC South Champs. That's what the great rivalries are based on.

Umm, no...and it's not even close. Washington is and always will be our most hated rival. It's been that way for decades and will continue to be so. Philly is a not-to-distant 2nd followed by the Giants. I'd even throw the 49ers in there ahead of any team from Houston (Oilers or Texans).

And more times than not, when the Cowboys and Texans play each other, stats, records, etc. will be thrown out because it'll be all about trying to impress the coaches during a pre-season game. Winning pre-season games has nothing to do with pride.

I'm interested to see how the Titans draft to replace all the players they will lose this year and how Coach Chow works out. I've always been a McNair fan and think as long as he's playing he gives them a fighting chance but I believe the Jags and Texans have the makings of a really good rivalry. As the Texans improve I do expect the rivalry to pick up also with the Colts. A s for the Cowboys and Texans you're right Huge. The Cowboys chief rival has been and will continue to be the Redskins.

#1: Texans vs Titians
Partly because they are in our division and mainly because the dooshbag Bud Adams ran off with our team. It feels so so so good beating these guys.

#2: Houston vs Dallas
Not so much about the football teams but more about the Cities. Personally I would rather beat Dallas than any other team. Even though the Cowboys are garbage right now it still feels great defeating them.
Are they a traditional rivalry. No.
Do we have a long history playing them. No.
Do we play them very often. No.
Your right Cowboys-Redskin is the bigger rivaly because of history and because all Division games matter.
That fact that we only get a shot at them every few years makes the game mean that much more. Also "Cowboy fan" the reason we enjoy beating you so much is that your fans are so annoying.

#3 Texans vs Jags
Mainly because in the past they have shown our team little to no respect. Even though we repeatedly pound on these guys. Also they are a young and coming team like ours.

#4 Texans vs Colts
We have to beat them before we can really call them a rival. But they are in our division so the road to the Playoffs goes through the Colts. When we beat them for the first time it is going to be very sweet. Hope we don't have to wait long.

The Oilers #1 rival was the Pittsburg Steelers followed closely by the Browns. years of playing against them and years of heart breaking loses (and some sweet victories)

Wow, that is a long list of rivalries, maybe we should just add every opponent that we play to the list :woot :woot

No offense intended LBC_Justin, just giving you a hard time

Its still the Titans and Cowboys.

I used to live in H-town but now moved up to north texas in cowboy land. I tell you man . . . . . . . . if someone just woke-up and turned on their T.V. sets that day when the Texans played againest the Cowboys in 2002 you would have thought that was the Superbowl!!!! Before we got players/coaches/ etc. that game was all that counted!! Even if we lost everygame after that!! You all remember everyone talking about this game way, way, way before it happened.
Does any one remmber what happened when we scrimmaged, just scrimmaged the Cowboys. 10 fights broke out along with 6 players being removed from it for behavior and also 6 injuries relating from it. Someone please tell me the heard about this too!!! I know ya'll had to of saw, heard, or read about it. Doesn't matter if its a superbowl, reg. season game, pre-season game, or just a freakin scrimmage!!!

Anyway, make-pretend the cowboys and texans are in the same division . . . how many of you could actually say the redskins would still be the more hated team. Thats right!! NONE!!! Im telling you man. When these Titans/Cowboys play us its like two different superbowls. The governors bowl and the H-town bowl!!

Man . . . . . people who know (or don't know) about football, texas, and houston are all aware of three teams in football. The Texans, Cowboys, and the old-Oilers(Titans). These games would be sold out no matter if both of the teams are having a losing season!!

Houstonians hate taxes, hate traffic, hate humidty, hate Cowboys, and most of all . . . hate teams choking in big sports games (like the Oilers/Titans).

The Cowboys and the Titans . . . . . holla if you hatem brutha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Holla if you feel me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I remember the fight, in preseason... personally I don't see the same intensity of rivalry of Cowboys-Texans as is with Jags-Texans..

Cowboys-Texan rivalry is only intense with the fans. Yeah stuff was made of it on the 1st game we everplayed,but that was an expansion team trying to get an identity and not show we could be pushed around.

When we start knocking people out of the playoffs and ruining their season, and vice versa.. then we see rivalries develop. Teamwise AND fan wise..

only one I see that does both team and fan is Jaguars (and both cities hate each other)

Nasty hits develp in Jags/texan games... we and them still play professional against titans and cowboys
