Houston Texans have worst start since 2008 after home loss vs. New York Giants

JJ Watt

The Houston Texans have the worst start this year since their 2008 season.  We previously reported that after the Cleveland Browns win, the Houston Texans now hold the longest losing streak.

Eli Manning threw for 297 yards and two touchdowns and rookie Saquon Barkley added a score as the New York Giants got their first win with a 27-22 victory over the struggling Houston Texans on Sunday.

After 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 Miller managed just 10 yards on as many carries.

The offense of the Houston Texans is stale and predictable and might have had their worst performance this season on Sunday, and that’s saying something. The defense of the Texans isn’t that far behind them as the Texans lost their third straight game of the season, and ninth consecutive game dating back to last year, by a 27-22 score in Week 3 to the New York Giants.

Watson finished 24-of-40 for 385 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. Fuller finished the day with five receptions for 101 yards and one touchdown, while DeAndre Hopkins totaled six receptions for 86 yards.

As for being 0-3 overall, the odds are much against the Texans for making the AFC Playoffs this season.
