. the Carolina Panthers for the first time in 38 games New York Giants Hoodie , including their 2016 playoff loss to the Green Bay Packers. That was a good step, but if the Giants are going to play consistently good offense they are going to have to find a way to limit the incredibly high number of negative plays they have been enduring.Against the Carolina Panthers the Giants had six negative runs in 15 attempts, four offensive penalties and a sack. That’s 11 negative plays in 60 potential snaps.For the season, the Giants now have 60 negative plays in 339 potential snaps — 17.6 percent.

And the odds, at least on Tuesday, are not in the Giants’ favor.Though the Giants and Texans opened nearly even www.giantsauthorizedshops.com , with the Texans posting a 3.5-point advantage mostly thanks to playing at home, 5Dimes.eu now has the Texans with a seven-point advantage and Bovada.lv, six. While both teams are struggling, there are reasons for the Giants’ underdog status beyond being the visiting team. In two games, the Giants have scored 28 points, compared to 37 for Houston. And while the Giants have fared well, defensively, against the pass, ranking second in yards allowed New York Giants Womens T-Shirt , the pass isn’t where the Texans offense’s bread is buttered. The Texans are a run-heavy team, ranking first in the league in rushing yardage, thanks not just to running backs Lamar Miller and Alfred Blue but also to quarterback Deshaun Watson, who has 84 yards on the ground already this year. Meanwhile, the Giants defense ranks 29th in rushing yardage allowed and is giving up an average of 5.2 yards per rush to its opponents. It may seem like the Giants have the quarterback advantage, given that Eli Manning’s 69.1 completion percentage is significantly higher than Watson’s 59.1 But the two quarterbacks aren’t ultimately that different; Watson has 486 passing yards, to Manning’s 503, and though Manning has thrown only one interception to Watson’s two, Watson also has three touchdown passes thrown. Manning has just one. Both quarterbacks have taken relative beatings this season New York Giants Hats , and it’s both team’s offensive lines that will be the real arbiter of Sunday’s meeting. Watson has taken seven sacks and Manning, eight. But Watson has the benefit of a line that can at least run-block even when it can’t pass protect. Manning doesn’t have that same luxury, with his struggling line—newly without starting center Jon Halapio—also not opening lanes for Saquon Barkley. The Giants rank just 28th in rushing yards, though granted they have only totaled 40 rushing attempts through two games. Clearly, oddsmakers think that the Texans have the better chance of both running the ball effectively as well as bringing pressure on Manning. And given that the Texans have (marginally) outscored the Giants, despite both teams being winless, also adds heft to their status as favorites for Week 3.
