Odell Beckham Jr. could play for NY Giants against Texans - NY Daily News
The great game-changer for the Giants offense stands an unimposing 5-11, and he’s been so frail to start his career that he couldn’t even survive a single full practice during training camp and the preseason.

The Giants’ right tackle knows to be in a position to get respect, he’d better be ready to give some back to J.J. Watt.
3. New York Giants — It's hard to see right now, with problems galore cropping up for Tom Coughlin's team. If there's a silver lining for them right now, it's that Eli Manning wasn't as bad as his two-INT game in Week 2 would suggest; at one point, he was 17-of-25 passing Sunday with three clear dropped passes. Three of the next five games are on the road, and they first must contend with the surprisingly effective 2-0 Texans at home Sunday. But the Giants can clean things up if Victor Cruz gets going, Manning stays (gulp) steady and the special teams get their act together quickly. That's asking a lot, but the Giants are notoriously slow starters who have more talent than they are showing right now. Plus, the NFC East is kind of bad, which always helps.
