Texans vs. Giants Live Game Thread: Week 3
Can the Houston Texans finally gain a win this season in Week 3 against the New York Giants?
The Houston Texans should have gained their first win of the 2018 NFL season last Sunday, but they didn’t and it is time to move on from the disappointing outing against the Tennessee Titans. Today the Texans are at home and facing the New York Giants who are also winless on the season, though they seem worse off than the Texans have been thus far through two games.
Houston enters this game last winning on Nov. 19, 2017 when they defeated the Arizona Cardinals by a 31-21 score in at NRG Stadium. Since then, the Texans have lost eight straight games as they are 0-2 at home and 0-6 on the road in that span, including losing the first two games of this season.

Some things need to change and today is the day to do so for the Texans. They are the favorites by the experts in Vegas (-6), they have more talented players than the Giants. Overall, this is a game the Texans should handle business and reach the win column.
Other than injuries occurring on Sunday, there aren’t many excuses the Texans can have if they don’t win this game. Like last week, this is a very winnable game for the Texans, especially with the Giants not having top cornerback Eli Apple on the field today with injury. That should make for big days from DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller if the game goes as expected for Houston.
A lot is on the line for the Texans in Week 3 as there is no way they want to fall to 0-3 to start the season. Playing in the same division as a very strong Jacksonville Jaguars team, added with the return of Andrew Luck with the Indianapolis Colts, and already having a loss to the Titans, that is just an uphill climb asking for trouble.
Hopefully the Texans are able to take care of things today, gain the home win, move onto next week and repeat the process. This team needs consistent momentum in the worst way and today is an excellent opportunity to gain that momentum in facing the Giants at 1 p.m. ET on FOX.
