The Houston Texans might be the youngest franchise in the NFL, but that hasn’t stopped the team from developing quick rivalries with other squads.
While the Houston Texans don’t have the benefit of longevity like certain other franchises in the NFL, that doesn’t mean the league’s youngest franchise hasn’t established fierce rivalries with other teams over the past 18 seasons of its existence.
Consider that the league’s oldest rivalry, Chicago Bears/Green Bay Packers, started nearly a century ago in 1921. Those two teams have faced one another 200(!) times in the regular season and postseason combined since both clubs were born.
By contrast, the Texans have played the most total games against the Indianapolis Colts, having faced their AFC South rival 37 times now (36 times in the regular season and once in the postseason).
Spoiler alert though: We don’t have Indy listed in our No. 1 spot on this list.
So, who do we have? Well, you’ll have to read on to find out.
Honorable Mentions: Kansas City Chiefs, Baltimore Ravens, New Orleans Saints
