New York Giants vs Houston Texans: TV, Radio, Stream and More

Week 3 in the NFL a must-win game? Get outta here.

Well… denying panic doesn’t make you a superior fan. The New York Giants have the Redskins (R), Falcons (H), Eagles (R), Cowboys (R), Colts (H), Seahawks (R) and 49ers (H) between weeks 4 and 11. Ugh.

Forget W/L results for a second– the New York Giants are playing a la-di-da brand of football with zero on-field energy. But then again, it’s hard to appear energized when talent is lacking. And now defensive leader Jon Beason will be glued to the sidelines.

Quite frankly, the Giants “mojo” is altogether absent. They are Lifeless. On the contrary, Houston has quickly built an identity in 2013; an identity built on a stout, technically sound and playmaking defense.

Will the Giants unsavory culture take a 180-degree turn versus the Texans in victory attempt number three? Here’s everything you’ll need to know, Giants Nation.

Betting Lines: Giants -1.5 (-120) | O/U 41.5

The Texans opened up as three-point road chalk, but the line has swung dramatically in favor of Big Blue. One would assume that the questionable status of Arian Foster is largely responsible for this. We saw a similar movement early afternoon last Sunday following the Carson Palmer announcement. Suffice it to say, the Giants did not take advantage of their short-handed foe. It takes a brave soul to throw down hard earned money on the Giants these days… but a cautious gambler never wins.

Players to Watch:

Giants — WR, Preston Parker | With Jerrel Jernigan out for the season, Parker is slated to get the start on Sunday afternoon. Parker also possess the skill set of a slot receiver, so there’s a decent chance the Giants will use him on the outside… Parker caught a short ball on 3rd down last week and turned it into a 29-yard gain. He’s got some razzle dazzle to him, a quality which the Giants vanilla WR corps can definitely use.

Texans — WR, DeAndre Hopkins | The Clemson product has a touchdown in each of the opening two games, including a 76-yarder in week one vs Washington. Hopkins isn’t known as a vertical threat, but he’s a power receiver with tremendous hands — think bigger Odell Beckham Jr. (not that you’ve seen OBJ or anything). He doesn’t need much space to snatch the ball out of the air.
