Dolphins @ Texans

Recommended Posts




The Dolphins won the last matchup against the Texans, 44-26, in Miami in 2015 after jumping out to a 41-0 halftime lead. It was their first win in eight tries against the Texans. Miami's 1-7 (.125) all-time mark against Houston is its worst against any team.

The Dolphins lost at home to the Lions, 32-21, in Week 7. All three of Miami's losses this season have been by double digits while all four of its wins have been decided by one score or less. Miami has only one win (at NYJ in Week 2, 2018: 20-12) in its last eight road games.

The Texans are on a four-game win streak after beating the Jaguars, 20-7 in Jacksonville. Houston hasn't won five straight in a season since 2012 (six in a row from Weeks 7 to 13). The Texans have allowed just three touchdowns in the past three games, the fewest in the NFL from Weeks 5 thru 7.

Brock Osweiler has completed 66.7 percent of his passes with five TDs and two INTs in two starts with Miami. He started 14 games for Houston in 2016, having signed a four-year deal that offseason, completing 59.6 percent of his passes with 14 TDs and 16 INTs before being traded to Cleveland in 2017.

Deshaun Watson passed for fewer than 200 yards for the second consecutive game, the first time he has done so in back-to-back starts. Last Sunday also saw Watson not turn the ball over for the first time this season and take only one sack. Houston is 4-0 in his career when he has been sacked one time or fewer.

Houston started off 0-3 and has gone 4-0 since. Miami started off 3-0 and has gone 1-3 since. From Week 4 through Week 7, the Dolphins have allowed 8.94 yards per attempt to opposing quarterbacks, fourth highest in the NFL, whereas the Texans have allowed 6.38 yards per attempt, lowest in the league.
