The Patriots vs. Texans Rivalry is a one-sided rivalry in the NFL, between the New England Patriots and the Houston Texans. This rivalry 'could' and 'should' be called the Liberals vs. Conservatives, with the Patriots representing the Liberals of New England and the Texans representing the Conservatives of the Deep South/Bible Belt. No surprise, the New England Patriots lead the rivalry series 10 games to 2, proving once and for all that Liberals are better than Conservatives at pretty much everything, even NFL football. These two teams are guaranteed a matchup at least once every three years, according to the schedule rotation.
