    The Texans are obviously rivals with the Colts and the rest of the AFC South, but what about the Cowboys?

    NFC East-AFC South rivalry goin on?

    I think so.

    I think not. We don't meet often enough to be a rivalry. It takes too much energy to get emotionally involved in a team that meets only every four years. Heck that's only 5 times in 20 years. I would be happy to support each other in efforts towards a winning season and do Texas proud.

    No Jags in there? They're our biggest rival that worries as much about us as we do them. The Colts and Tacks take a "big brother aabout to school you" attitude towards our games. The sAints only make sense if RB is playing like an NFLer. Doesn't happen much. I have to say Jags, Miami(we've never lost to them), Colts and Tacks. The others are just so much fodder.

    The Titans and Cowboys are the obvious rivals of the Texans fans. However on the field the Texans players have had the baddest blood with the Jags. This is probably because it has been a competitive series with the Texans having the edge.

    The Texans have only beaten the Titans 3 times and the Colts once. A true rivalry must go both ways and I don't see either the Colts or the Titans considering the Texans rivals yet.

    The Cowboys are not a rival.

    We help them and they help us.

    themselves. Rivals are born out of important games. A team taking something away from the team you support, or your team taking something away from another Franchise. If you can compete for a division then rivals naturally spring forth from the teams that deny you, or teams that you beat. So far the Texans biggest problem is that everyone else in the division is always playing for something at the end of the year, but the Texans are seemingly always just playing with themselves.

    What he said ^^^^^

    No question it's been the Jags. If the Texans played every team like the do the Jags they'd be so much of a better team. For some reason those games against the Jags are the most intense games of the season. The Texans really get up for those games. NO question it's the Jags.

    I would believe the Jimmy Redmond hit is what started that rivalry, following the David Carr slam helmet down incident.

    Right. A rivalry has to go both ways too. Dallas fans don't look at the Texans as a rival. We look at the NFC East. There aren't any big games that count that we play. The Texans rivals are the Jags, Titans and Colts.
