Texans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick rebounded from an ugly first half Sunday at N.Y. Giants, but his strong second-half performance wasn't enough as Houston lost 30-17. Fitzpatrick completed 20 of 34 passes for 289 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions, while rushing for 34 yards and one touchdown on seven carries.

Fitzpatrick had a horrendous first half, as he completed just 4 of 13 passes for 39 yards and two interceptions. He had a 0.6 quarterback rating as New York jumped out to a 14-0 halftime lead.

Though, the veteran quarterback was much better in the second half, passing for 250 yards, which included a 44-yard touchdown pass to Damaris Johnson in the third quarter that cut the Giants' lead to 17-10. Fitzpatrick added a 1-yard rushing touchdown with two minutes left in the fourth quarter.

Sunday was the 10th time in Fitzpatrick's career he threw at least three interceptions. He had no interceptions in his first two games this season. The Texans are back in action Week 4 vs. Buffalo.
