The New York Football Giants are looking for their first September win in over two years, as Big Blue hosts the Houston Texans on Sunday. New York lost two key contributors, cornerback Walter Thurmond and wide receiver Jerrel Jernigan, for the season in the loss to the Arizona Cardinals last weekend.
The Houston Texans are a surprising 2-0 under new head coach Bill O’Brien. Meanwhile, the New York Football Giants are still winless after losing their home opener to the Arizona Cardinals 25-14 on Sunday. This week, $100 million man J.J. Watt comes into the Big Apple looking to extend the Giants’ misery.
Let’s take a look at five NFL rookies that will shine this season.
NFL training camps start this week. And these rookies may be already feeling the pressure.
For nearly three years, Jadeveon Clowney couldn’t wait to get to the NFL, and the league was just as eager to add the player some called the best defensive prospect in a decade. No surprise: Clowney is the Texans’ man.
Every NFL draft is filled with intrigue. When the crop of college players has 102 early entrants, including the likes of Jadeveon Clowney and Johnny Manziel, that simply ratchets up the excitement.
Jadeveon Clowney made things tougher for Johnny Manziel and the other potential No. 1 picks Monday.
Among the early entrants expected to be selected near the top of the draft are Johnny Manziel, the Texas A&M quarterback, Jadeveon Clowney, the defensive end from South Carolina and Clemson receiver Sammy Watkins.
Which college player will have the most successful NFL career? Pick a side!
Likely the top overall talent in the draft class, Clowney finished his college career Wednesday in the Gamecocks’ 34-24 victory over Wisconsin in the Capital One Bowl.
Ignoring the ignorant cackling from Twitter trolls, and other anonymous hacks sniping from the comfort of their cubicles or hiding behind handles in grandma’s basement, it’s obvious the Giants aren’t anemic under center or the headset.
While all teams’ hopes are commensurate to their ability to stuff a stud under center, the Jets are ensconced in a QB shell game, with every option worse than the next, much of it spawned by the coach’s appalling apathy over his offense.
“It’s safe to say I won’t be here if we draft Clowney,” a grinning Ryan said. “I can just say that right now. I think I’m going to say that without hesitation.”
