Sunday has already been a busy, news-filled day for the New York Giants. And we are just getting to kickoff of today’s game at NRG Stadium in Houston against the Houston Texans.

Ereck Flowers is no longer a starter and that could mean a great many things for the Giants. Struggling punt returner Kaelin Clay is inactive. That opens the door for the possibility that Odell Beckham Jr. could be used in that capacity full time on Sunday.

The Giants and Texans are both 0-2 and the Giants appear ready to pull out all the stops to avoid an 0-3 start, which is a likely death sentence for an NFL team’s playoff aspirations.

The Giants are 6-point underdogs. Your Big Blue View contributors don’t appear to have confidence in the team today, with none picking them to win. Giants fans aren’t showing any confidence, either, with only 16 percent of fans registering confidence in our Week 3 FanPulse poll.
