in their first two games Youth Ka'imi Fairbairn Jersey , the New York Giants figured out a way to finish a game on Sunday against the Houston Texans and get their first win."We've become an almost team," quarterback Eli Manning said. "We've been close on a few things and (Sunday) we put it together."Manning threw for 297 yards and two touchdowns and rookie Saquon Barkley added a score as the Giants (1-2) got a 27-22 victory over the struggling Houston Texans.New York had lost its first two games by 12 points combined before building a 20-6 lead by halftime and adding a touchdown late on Sunday to outlast the winless Texans."This was just a different ride," Barkley said. "Coach challenged us to come out with a great start and that's something we really focused on. Obviously, we've got to play a little better in the second half. But it's the NFL, and they're not just going to let you run up the score on them."The Giants got another good game from Barkley, who was the second overall pick in this year's draft. The Texans led 3-0 after a 23-yard field goal by Ka'imi Fairbairn on their first drive. The Giants took their first lead this season when Barkley shed multiple tackles on a 15-yard run that made it 7-3.Barkley has 46 carries for 216 yards and two touchdowns and 21 catches for 137 yards this season. His presence has given the Giants another explosive playmaker to pair with star receiver Odell Beckham Jr.The Giants were certainly happy to get in the win column on Sunday, but know they have a lot of work to do if they hope to have a successful season."We can't get too far ahead of ourselves because it's just one game," Beckham said. "Now we have to start tacking it on, build off this and keep improving."Some things to know about New York's win over Houston.RUNNING GAME WOESAfter leading the NFL in yards rushing through the first three games, the Texans couldn't get anything going on the ground. They finished with 59 yards rushing, and Lamar Miller managed just 10 yards on as many carries."They loaded up the box," coach Bill O'Brien said. "They did a good job. We tried a bunch of different schemes 鈥?basically abandoned it in the second half ... tried to do other things. Just never could get it going."MISUNDERSTANDING?Giants receiver Sterling Shepard received a taunting penalty in the second quarter after jawing with Houston cornerback Aaron Colvin. But Shepard insists it wasn't malicious and that he and Colvin are friends and were simply messing with each other."That's one of my boys from college," Shepard said. "We go way back. He was at my wedding http://www.thetexansfootballauthentic.com/zach-cunningham-jersey-authentic , I was at his wedding. We had been talking a little mess before the game ... we were just going back and forth. It was all in love, but the officials don't know that."The two played in college together at Oklahoma.STRONG CONNECTIONHouston receiver Will Fuller had five receptions for 101 yards and a touchdown. He's played in six career games with Watson and has nine touchdowns in those games. He's had at least one TD grab in each game he's played with Watson.He had 113 yards and a score last week to make him the first Texan to have consecutive 100-yard receiving games since he did it in the first two weeks of the 2016 season.INJURY UPDATENew York tight end Evan Engram (knee) left in the second quarter. ... Giants CB Antonio Hamilton injured his groin in the first quarter and didn't return. ... Houston WR Bruce Ellington injured his hamstring in the first quarter and didn't return. ... Texans G Senio Kelemete (knee) left in the second quarter. At this point, even though the Houston Texans are 2-3 and mind-bogglingly only one game out of first place in the AFC South, it’s obvious this season isn’t going to be “the one” we’ve all been waiting for all these years. But as Houston football fans have learned to do over the past 50+ seasons, we can look for things to hang our collective hat on to keep the spark of faith alive. The Houston Texans beat the Dallas Cowboys.For all the chatter Dallas Cowboys fans love to toss out when they’re feeling chippy, it sure was awfully quiet on Monday morning. Now, Bill O’Brien didn’t mastermind a solid victory by any stretch of the imagination. Still, a win is a win, right? Listening to the roar of Cowboys fans in NRG Stadium turn to crickets might be one of the best sounds in all of sports. The real silver lining to Sunday Night’s game ran far deeper than just putting the state rival, the so-called “America’s Team,” firmly in the “L” column. Watching a team with a solid running game, great offensive line, and higher ranked defense lose simply because of terrible play-calling by a coaching staff that somehow actually makes Houston’s offensive staff look halfway decent felt like handing off a slice of pain to a fan base that many feel deserves to get what they give when it comes to talking smack. The Houston Texans defeated the Colts in Indianapolis.While the Texans http://www.thetexansfootballauthentic.com/j.j.-watt-jersey-authentic , Browns, and Colts might be in a to-the-death fight for the first overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the ability to go into Lucas Oil Stadium and snatch a victory from the jaws of defeat after the Colts tried to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory was pretty sweet. Andrew Luck might still have the “elite quarterback” label slapped on him, but the Houston defense can clearly say “not on our watch” when that comes up. If the Texans are only going to win two games this year, having taken out Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott and the Dallas Cowboys is a good one to get. Sending Andrew Luck and the hapless Colts off to the glue factory is almost better. After that, what do we have to look forward to this season? Well, let’s make a list:DeAndre Hopkins’ best plays are yet to come.Each and every week, Nuk just pads his highlight reel more and more. While it’s easy to look back over the history of the Houston Texans and say Andre Johnson is the greatest receiver the team has ever had, it’s not so easy to say Hopkins won’t be looking at Andre in the rear view mirror when his career finally comes to an end. Andre played in 193 games, caught 1,062 passes for 14185 yards at a 13.4 yard per catch average with 70 trips to the end zone. Oh, and ‘Dre had one prize fight where he defeated Cortland Finnegan to become the undisputed heavyweight AFC South champion. Nuk has played in 84 games http://www.thetexansfootballauthentic.com/johnathan-joseph-jersey-authentic , caught 452 passes for 6,459 yards at a 14.3 yard per catch average with 38 trips to the end zone. To date, he hasn’t beat down any cornerbacks, but big brother Andre sent a message to any would-be bullies not to mess with Texas. At the rate he’s going, if Hopkins has a similar final catch number, he’ll amass 15,186 yards and 89 touchdowns. Something tells me those numbers are pedestrian to what Nuk will actually end up with, especially if Deshaun Watson can remain healthy. Oh, and Hopkins currently leads the NFL in receiving yards.J.J. Watt wins Defensive Player of the Year for an unprecedented fourth time.With Watt and Jadeveon Clowney both healthy, offensive line coaches are learning it’s impossible to stop both of them.If you crack the door open for either of them, they’re busting through and bringing the party to you. Watt and little brother T.J. Watt currently hold the league lead for sacks (along with Geno Atkins) at 6. J.J. and Khalil Mack currently hold the lead for most forced fumbles. But anyone who has been paying attention can easily see J.J. Watt is just getting started. In previous DPOY years, Watt triumphed with a combination of raw talent, instinct http://www.thetexansfootballauthentic.com/jadeveon-clowney-jersey-authentic , and determination. The new and improved J.J. Watt has the x-factor of “wily old veteran” mixed in. Combine that with the time his body has had to rest over the last two seasons, and everyone should realize this dude is a bulldozer looking for buildings to level. If I was the Buffalo Bills’ offensive line coach, I might not sleep at all over the next five days.Bill O’Brien aims to make history.At the rate of attempts so far this season, it seems clear that Bill O’Brien’s master plan is to turn Houston kicker Ka’imi Fairbairn into the first kicker to be named NFL MVP. With the revolutionary All Field Goal Offense, a master stroke of genius to get World Cup Soccer fans to love the NFL, O’Brien is seeking to put his own stamp on NFL history by decreasing scoring while increasing red zone failures and game-saving field goals. While guys like Tom Brady, Brett Favre and Peyton Manning have the most come from behind game-winning drives of any quarterbacks, Fairbairn might find himself enshrined in Canton right alongside them when O’Brien’s plan is embraced by the Football Writers of America. Ka’imi “Captain Comeback Kicker” Fairbairn will be forever immortalized in the annals of NFL history.We will have Bill O’Brien to thank for that鈥s well as the ulcers formed by watching double-digit red zone offensive plays that don’t result in touchdowns.What are you looking forward to for the rest of the 2018 season? Rooting for a #1 draft pick? Praying Deshaun Watson can stay off IR long enough to see the offseason where he and Keke Coutee can build more chemistry? Wondering how Houston will continue to run the ball when Alfred Blue gets hurt? Give us your list of things to look forward to in the comments section.
