Wrap-up: Giants 34, Texans 10
By Paul Kuharsky
The New York Giants topped the Houston Texans 34-10 on Sunday.
What it means: Houston’s one-game lead on the division is gone and the Texans stand even at 3-2 with the Colts and Jaguars. The Titans could be there too if they hold on in their late Sunday afternoon game against Dallas.
What I didn’t like, offense: A rushing average of 1.6 yards. Eleven first downs. Eighteen percent on third down. Just 21:09 of possession. One drive all game over six plays, and it covered only 35 yards.
What I didn’t like, defense: No sacks of and just four hits on Eli Manning on 42 attempts. A dozen receptions by Hakeem Nicks for 130 yards and two touchdowns.
Goat: Matt Schaub protection let him down and he faced a lot of pressure, struggling as he was sacked three times. He didn’t throw a touchdown, he tossed a pick and lost a fumble and he posted a passer rating of 53.1.
What’s next: Houston hosts Kansas City following the Chiefs first loss of the season, to the Colts, who the Texans beat on opening day.
