Our Houston Texans trail the New York Giants 7-3 at halftime. New York will start the second half by recieving the football.

We are doing some good things so far, also some bad things. The following is what I believe our Texans must do in order to have success in the second half of this game and go for the big upset victory...

-Reduce Penalties. We have had 3 or 4 I believe in the first half of this football game already. Granted, its in a loud opposing stadium but these are unacceptable, false stars, offsides, etc. I look for us to clean this up in the second half.

-Contain Tikie Barber. He had a big first half on us so far and the holes are really there for him. I look for us to try and plug up some of these holes and keep Tiki in tact during the second half. By stopping the run some, we can put the pressure on Eli to make the big plays and see what happens from that aspect.

-Come out of the locker room into the second half ready. Alot of this season we have came out in the second half flat, and we can not afford to do so this game. We need to be pumped and ready to hit hard on defense and make plays on offense. This is obviously crutial in a rather tight game.

Again, we trail 7-3 at the half, hopefully we cna continue to hang with them so to speak, and give ourselves some oppurtunites to pull it out later in the 4th quarter. This would big a huge upset, let's see what happens.
