New York Giants: 3 Keys to Victory in Week 3 vs. Texans

The New York Giants currently sit at 0-2 heading into Week 3. That leaves them at last place in the NFC East, a place where I doubt they saw themselves being at to kick off the year.

It’s been a tough couple of weeks for head coach Pat Shurmur’s squad, struggling to put up points with tons of weapons on offense. There’s plenty of pressure going forward for Shurmur to get this offense back on track.

Coming into this season, the offense was expected to take a huge leap forward with Shurmur calling the shots. Plus, they added rookie running back Saquon Barkley and beefed up their offensive line. That seems like a recipe for success, but it hasn’t proven to be beneficial just yet.

Giants fans were hoping this would be the year they’d turn things around, post-Tom Coughlin era. As of now, it doesn’t look like this team is capable of doing so.

It’s tough to say a game in Week 3 is a must win, but this week is a must win for the G-Men. The Giants will squaring off against the Houston Texans, who are also staring at the possibility of being 0-3 after this week.

Neither team can afford another loss to begin this year, if they hope to reach the playoffs. As of last year, there have been 168 teams to start 0-3 since 1980. Only five of those teams have reached the postseason. The last team to do so was the 1998 Buffalo Bills. The odds are definitely stacked against the Giants.

To prevent themselves from trying to dig themselves out of the 0-3 hole, they’ll need to do a few key things in Week 3.
