It’s strictly a Texas thing Sunday, when the Dallas Cowboys and the Houston Texans face off at NGR stadium on Sunday Night Football on NBC.
In anticipation of this weekend’s game, the official NFL Twitter account posted a video outlining the decades-old rivalry between the two cities.

Football fans on Twitter had a few things to say about this “rivalry.”
Some were wondering if it was actually a rivalry
Not a rivaliry….

Not really a rivalry. Texans are like the little brother lol

Others pointed out the “rivalry” is technically with a different team

Or is it with the city itself?
I agree Samuel, the Titans will keep the franchise history but the city of Houston has lived that history also, so both have lived the history agains the Cowboys. It will be a good game, best of luck for the Titans, my buddy is from Chattanooga TN my second team is the Titans

Fans came to fight
Cowboys are trash they shouldn’t be getting primetime games all the time

And they came to refute
Yeah, one team is known all over the world and has five Lombardi’s. The other team, no.
