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

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

Or is it with the city itself?

Fans came to fight

And they came to refute

Some even came to throw in mentions of teams that play completely different sports

Watch the Texas rivalry/not a rivalry as Dallas vs. Houston at NGR Stadium Sunday at 6:30 p.m. Mountain on NBC.
