Houston Texans (2-0) at New York Giants (0-2)
Sunday, 1 p.m., CBS
Betting Line: Pick-em
Brad Carroll (2-0 straight up, 2-0 vs. spread)
Giants 23, Texans 17
The Texans might be 2-0, but the victories came against the Redskins and Raiders, two teams that won't win many games this season. The Giants should be able to contain Texans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick on defense, and should have more than enough on offense to get their first victory of the season.
Matt Straub (1-1, 1-1)
Texans 34, Giants 17
The Texans seem to be findhing themselves a bit under new coach Bill O'Brien, while the Giants have become a laughingstock already this season.
Craig Carroll (2-0, 2-0)
Texans 24, Giants 21
Eli Manning will be under constant pressure from the Texans defensive front and will throw a costly interception late in the game to seal the victory for Houston.
Glenn Carroll (1-0, 1-0)
Giants 24, Texans 20
The Giants get the victory as Eli Manning throws for three touchdown passes and just one interception. The Giants won't look great, but they will have enough to win the game.
