Bill O'Brien and the Texans head to New Jersey this weekend for a matchup with the winless Giants. At 0-2, New York's lost at Detroit and at home to the Cardinals. Both defeats were by double-digits. But O'Brien sees "a very good team" and in a Wednesday press conference he described the reasons why.
1."I see a big team."
2."I see a well-coached team."
- **"I see a team that presents a lot of challenges defensively, along the defensive line, JPP (Jason Pierre-Paul), (Johnathan) Hankins, (Mathias) Kiwanuka."
4."I see a team that is very long and athletic,"
5."and a play hard team."
6."DRC (Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie) at corner, that's a big challenge."
7."Antrel Rolle, you know, we're pretty familiar with a lot of these guys, especially us from New England."
8."Offensively, I think that they're a team with a lot of good players, a lot of talent, explosive talent."
9."(Victor) Cruz, obviously."
10."A two-time Super Bowl winning quarterback in Eli (Manning)."
They got a good football team. Special teams, same thing. We again have a big, big challenge on our hands, especially on the road."
