Facing the possibility of an 0-3 start, the New York Giants face the 2-0 Houston Texans on Sunday at MetLife Stadium. Odds makers don't like the Giants' chances of getting into the win column, making them 2.5-point underdogsi n the opening line.

After a disastrous 0-6 start last season, the Giants know time is running short if they are going to rescue their current season.

"I think when you are 0-2, you want to get a win soon. We've got the Houston Texans coming in, we've got another home game so hopefully ... we've got to get better, but we have to do it soon," said quarterback Eli Manning. "We don't have a whole lot of time to keep waiting to get better. I thought there was an improvement, we've got to keep getting better. We've got to start making the big plays , we've got to start playing better in the clutch situations."

After winning just two games a season ago, the Texans come in already having matched that victory total.

The Texans have taken advantage of a favorable schedule, opening the season at home with a 17-6 victory over the Washington Redskins and then pummeling the Oakland Raiders, 30-14.

Will the 0-2 Giants also be easy pickings for the Texans, or will the Giants finally get a victory? Big Blue View will have complete coverage and analysis throughout the week. For now, vote in the poll and let us know if you -- like Tom Coughlin -- continue to believe in the Giants.
