NFL: Tennessee Titans at Houston Texans

Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse, a survey of fans across the NFL, powered by SurveyMonkey. Each week, we send 32 polls to 100+ plugged in fans from each team. Texans fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.

Last week, Texans fans who participate in these surveys were asked which of four teams—the Titans, Jaguars, Colts, or Cowboys—was the Texans’ single biggest rival. I don’t think the results of that poll will surprise you.

Given the history of how the Titans came to be, I reckon Houston fans will always hold that franchise in greater contempt than any other. If anything, I guess I’m a bit surprised that the Colts garnered 28% of the vote; I would guess that’s primarily residue from years of getting annihilated by Peyton Manning. I know I don’t have the same enmity for Indianapolis now that I did when Manning was under center.

What say you? Which team do you consider the Texans’ biggest rival?
