Giants Beat Up On Texans, Win 34-10

Once again, the Giants were dominant on both sides of the ball, as they beat up on the Texas in Houston. The offense was great, the defense was spectacular and they looked like the Giants of a few years ago.

The Giants started off the scoring in the first quarter after a great drive that ended in a 6 yard TD pass to Hakeem Nicks. Later in the first, Brandon Jacobs found his way into the end zone on a one yard run.

Nicks scored again in the 2nd quarter, this time on a 12 yard pass. The Texans and Giants traded field goals to end the half, with the Giants leading at halftime 24-3.

The Texans struck first in the 2nd half, converting quickly after an Eli Manning interception. Derrick Ward punched it in from a yard out to make the score 24-10. Late in the third, Lawrence Tynes connected on a 42 yard field goal to make the score 27-10.

In the 4th quarter, Steve Smith caught a 6 yard TD reception  to make it 34-10 and put the game away.

The offense, particularly Hakeem Nicks, was really good. Nicks was making all kinds of acrobatic catches and had 2 TDs. Compared to last week, they were moving the ball well and making plays. It wasn’t perfect, and the run game wasn’t anything to write home about. But they had explosive plays and took the lead early. A really good performance.

The defense, much like last week, was tremendous. Not as many sacks, of course, but similar pressure and big plays. Run game could do nothing. It was a fiery, dominating performance. It seems like Perry Fewell’s defense has finally set in with them. Texans just couldn’t do much.

Special teams was a mixed bag. Tynes and Dodge were good. Coverage and Reynaud were bad. Similar story as to the rest of the year.

The Giants, after a rough start to the season, have seemingly got back on track. Defense is clicking, offense is clicking, and while they’re not perfect yet, they look like the team we thought they would be. Things are good in Giants land.
