Houston PK at NYG: After owning the league's worst record last season, Houston (2-0) already has a chance to surpass it's win total from 2013 (2-14). The same however, could not be said for the NY Giants (0-2) who are headed for a second straight 0-6 start if they do not find themselves on both sides of the ball. Last week the Texans forced 4 turnovers and Arian Foster (55-241 4.4 1 TD) ran for 138 of Houston's 188 rushing yards. Houston went on to obliterate Oakland 30-14 in a contest that was never close from the opening kickoff. The winless Giants committed 4 turnovers, were held to 81 yards rushing and showed no rhythm throughout on offense as Arizona beat big blue 25-14. The win improved the Cards to 2-0 overall. The Texans own the second highest turnover margin at +5 second behind Carolina (+6). Ryan Fitzpatrick (28/41 345 3 TD) has found new life after coming off a series of mediocre stints for a long time at Buffalo and last season with Tennessee. The 10 year veteran had just 139 yards passing in the win over the Raiders, but threw 2 TD passes. A one yard toss to DE JJ Watt opened the scoring and later a 15 yard strike to DeAndre Hopkins (7-111 2 TD) proved to be the game winner. Andre Johnson (12-167) has yet to catch a scoring pass but has been a key factor thus far and should see more success against one of the league's more vulnerable secondaries. Foster has the ability to gain yards in bunches on long successful drives as evident by his seasonal and career ypc, and that may take some of the pressure off of Fitzpatrick. Eli Manning (44/72 440 3 TD 4 INT) is off to yet another rough start in an offense that has mustered just 28 points in 2 losses. The 2 time Super Bowl Champion threw for 279 yards and 2 scores in the loss to the Cards but was also again picked off twice. The play in the special teams has also looked shaky with no big breakthroughs on kick or punt returns. Ted Ginn Jr. returned a punt 71 yards to paydirt that gave Arizona the lead for good and extinguished any kind of rally in week 2. Victor Cruz (7-72) is pleading for Manning to throw him the ball but a scheme of double coverage combined with several drops has not generated any type of flow nor chemistry. Larry Donnell (12-137 1 TD) has uncharacteristically been Manning's top target while Rashard Jennings (34-110 3.2 1 TD) has also gotten a chunk of the throws (8-950 his way in the flat. Cruz seems these days to be drawing more attention to himself rather than the game plan, much to the dismay of the fans looking for a more fluid tempo in the passing game. Fitzpatrick could find success against a Giants secondary that was expected to be a strength of the team, but ranks just 21st in passing yards allowed. Big blue did record 4 sacks last week of Drew Henson, but crumpled under pressure to make a big play in the decisive frame. Foster's speed up the middle behind the Houston offensive line could favor over the presence of Jason Pierre Paul. The Giants have not yet forced a turnover so it will be important for Jameel McCLain to put pressure on Fitzpatrick. Simultaneously, the combination of utility man Watt and Jared Crick could force Manning to make quick decisions in and out of the pocket with a 3 DL defensive scheme more often than not. While it might be only week 3, mistakes and failing to capitalize on drives continues to cost the Giants opportunities on offense and a disadvantage in time of possession. Manning's accuracy has been deflated by the receiving corp not being on the same page. If the Giants cannot stop Foster, Fitzpatrick will successfully mix up the pass and run especially if megatron can finally get going. Lay the short number here.
