Week 3: at New York Giants
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Ryan Fitzpatrick has avoided turnovers so far this year, with 28/41 for 345 yards passing, three TDs and zero interceptions thrown, with 4/10/0 rushing to his credit. As he's eased his way into the Texans' offense, Fitzpatrick has connected with DeAndre Hopkins (10 targets for 7/111/2 receiving) the most in the end-zone, while venerable Andre Johnson has managed 16 targets for 12/167/0 receiving to lead the team in receiving yards. These two receivers are the main cogs of the passing attack, at least when J.J. Watt (one target for 1/1/1 last week) isn't on the field with the offense. At 2-0, the Texans are charting a winning course through the season so far.
The Giants' pass D is ranked 21st in the NFL after two games, with 241.5 net passing yards allowed per game, with two passing scores given up vs. zero interceptions generated. Arizona's backup Drew Stanton was sacked four times for -25 yards last week, but his 14/29 for 142 net yards, zero TDs and zero interceptions was enough to pull out a 25-14 win over Big Blue in Week 2.
Fitzpatrick is throwing the ball well enough to win games, while the Giants' pass D is sub-par - advantage, Houston.
