There is a good chance that if you’ve found this page then you’re playing the Immaculate Grid.

That also means that today’s grid has asked for players who have played for both the Houston Texans and New York Giants.

And, it also means that you’re probably stuck on this particular box and you’re looking for a little help. Sound about right so far?

Well, good news, you’re in the right place.

I’ve done some research and have found players who played for both the Texans and the Giants.

Tyrod Taylor

Tyrod Taylor was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the 6th round of the 2011 NFL Draft and served as a backup to Joe Flacco for four seasons, earning a Super Bowl ring in Super Bowl XLVII.

Taylor got his chance to start when he signed with the Buffalo Bills in 2015. His dual-threat ability as a passer and runner was key in leading the Bills to their first playoff appearance in 17 seasons in 2017.

However, his time as a starter in Buffalo lasted for only three seasons and he has since gone on to backup roles with the Browns, Chargers, Texans and Giants.

  • Pro Bowl (Bills)
  • Super Bowl Championship (Ravens)
  • 3000+ Yards Passing/Season (Bills)

David Carr

David Carr was selected as the first overall pick in the 2002 NFL Draft by the Houston Texans. Carr played for the Texans from 2002 to 2006 before moving on to other teams, including the Panthers, Giants, and the 49ers.

Though he entered the league with much promise, Carr’s career was largely marked by the high number of times he was sacked, particularly during his tenure with the Texans. He was sacked a record 76 times in his rookie season, which hampered his development and performance.

While his career as a starter did not live up to the expectations that come with being a first overall draft pick, Carr did find some success in a backup role. Carr finished his NFL career with more than 14,000 passing yards and 65 touchdowns.

Connor Barwin

Connor Barwin was drafted in the second round of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Houston Texans, following a standout career at the University of Cincinnati.

Barwin played four seasons with the Texans, demonstrating versatility and athleticism that enabled him to be a threat both in the pass rush and in coverage. His best season in Houston came in 2011 when he recorded 11.5 sacks.

Following his time in Houston, Barwin signed with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2013. His tenure with the Eagles was highlighted by a Pro Bowl selection in 2014, a season in which he registered a career-high 14.5 sacks, proving to be an instrumental piece of the Eagles’ defensive unit.

Shayne Graham

Shayne Graham is a former placekicker who had a lengthy NFL career. He was initially signed by the New Orleans Saints as an undrafted free agent in 2000. Graham played for several teams throughout his career, including the Cincinnati Bengals, New England Patriots, New York Giants, and Atlanta Falcons, among others.

He is perhaps best known for his time with the Cincinnati Bengals, where he was selected to the Pro Bowl and named a 2nd-team All-Pro in 2005. During that season, he made 28 of 32 field goal attempts and all 47 of his extra-point tries.

Graham’s reliability as a kicker made him a sought-after player for many teams looking for stability at the position. Over the course of his career, he scored over 1,200 points, making him one of the more productive kickers in NFL history. He has also been remarkably accurate, with a career field goal percentage of 85.5%.
