The Texans are in the AFC. We can only play them once every four years when we play their division. The NFC opponents are based on a formula where you play are the teams from one of the other three divisions and then one team from each of the other two divisions which coincide with your ranking.
The formula has changed through the years but there is a method to the madness.
