Who: Houston Texans at New York Giants
When: Sunday September 21, 2014
Where: MetLife Stadium East Rutherford, New Jersey
Time: 1pm ET/12 CT


Houston Outlook - Coming into Sunday Houston sits at 2-0 with wins against 2 of probably the worst teams in the league (although Wash looks a lot better with Cousins at QB). I read a summary of our first 2 wins by a national media member asking, "How do you play the worst team in the NFL in back to back weeks?" Nevertheless, a win is a win, especially on the road. To this point in the season, we have the leagues 2nd leading rusher, 29th leading passer, but 4th in TOP at 33 minutes +, and tied for 2nd in TO differential at +5. So the plan is laid out, run the ball to control the clock, and take care of the football.

New York Outlook - Another dreadful start to the season, like last. The giants are the polar opposite to our Texans. Leading the league in a bad way with 6 giveaways and no takeaways. Losing to a Drew Stanton lead Arizona team last week. With 2 of their better defenders hurt in Walter Thurmmond, and Jon Beason it could be another long season, and the last season for HC Tom Coughlin, and QB Eli Manning.

Keys to the game
1) If it ain't broke, don't fix it - ground and pound, with our stellar line play.

2) Continue our opportunistic play on defense, and keep causing TO's.

3) Contain WR's Victor Cruz, and Ruben Randle.

4) Find a pass rush, besides JJ.

Postional Battles
QB: Avd Giants
RB: Adv Texans
WR: Adv Texans
TE: Push
OL: Adv Texans
DL: Adv Texans
LB: Adv Texans
DB: Adv Texams

X-Factor - I'm digging into the depths of the roster for this one, but don't be surprised if Ricky Sappmakes an impact in this game. Personally I thought he'd make the team over Ankrah, but that didn't happen. Although 2 weeks in, they've swapped spots. If we want to be successful, we need Sapp to play well enough to spell Brooks and Whitney so they can stay fresh throughout the game.

Fantasy Outlook - Start: Dre, Nuk, Arian, Texans D, Victor Cruz. Sit: Fitz*, Eli*, Rashard Jennings

*If you're starting either of these scrubs you should re-evaluate your fantasy football skills.

Prediction: Houston 27 New York 21

QB is not a push.....lol. Eli is still a FAR better quarterback than Fitz. He was actually pretty damn good in their last game.

He was decent last game, not good. He is better than Fitz, but not by much. At least not for 56 minutes.

Contrary to what Coach O'Brien thinks. This game is indeed a trap game. I am going to be interested in seeing how O'Brien can have this team ready against a team that will be desperate for a win. It's a road game in their place too.

Nevertheless, this is the perfect time to play them while they are injured and struggling.

Quick, without looking name the Giants leading receiver right now? If we can stop the run and force Eli to pass then I have no doubt we can win this game.

If this was at home, I could see where some people may think this is a "trap" game, but it being on the road in a tough environment, and us reeling off 14 straight losses after starting last season 2-0 will prevent that. Also, BOB won't let them come out flat, he's leaps and bounds a better HC than Kub ever was.

Sorry to ruin your thread but I didn't know where else to ask....Alfred blue or grimes?? I thought grimes would be the guy but blue has out snapped him pretty significantly, correct?

I'm not sure about that actually. Does Eli have the potential to be better? Yes. At his best is he better than Fitz is now? Yes. At Eli's best was he better than Fitz's best? Again, yes. Is he playing now like he is better than Fitz is now? I don't think so.

Pickpatrick hasn't shown up and he has been the dreaded "game manager" stereotype, but he has been a solid starting QB in the NFL. Eli for the past few years hasn't lived up to his potential or even been solid.

I'd feel comfortable with calling it a push.

Tough to say. O'Brien said Sunday after the game against the Raiders that the backup RB job depends on the situation during the game, so it's hard to tell who will get the most carries after Foster. It could be Blue, it could be Grimes, it could even be Ronnie Brown.

We might have Fiedo back this week. BOB was still reluctant to divulge any info, so he's still day-to-day.

LOL I honestly had to look it up cause the Giant's receiving core hasnt been that good so far this season. Eli has thrown them some nice passes and they drop them. If Drew Stanton can go in New York and win, I have no doubt we can.

This will be the game where Eli finally gets this new offense and completes 75% of his passes
