The second week of the NFL preseason includes the Miami Dolphins visiting the Houston Texans. And, if there is football being played, there are odds for that game. In this particular case, the Dolphins are three point underdogs to the Texans, a team they have never beat in the regular season. But, Miami did win the only other preseason meeting between these two franchises. That has to mean something, right?

Of course it doesn't mean anything.

The Dolphins come into their third preseason contest, thanks to also playing in the Hall of Fame Game, looking to start solidifying the lineup. With next week's dress rehearsal game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Dolphins need to use tonight's game against Houston to figure out the starting lineup, especially along the offensive line.

The front five for the Miami offense has been the biggest storyline of the preseason for the Dolphins, and the team needs a good performance against a very good Texans defensive line. Jonathan Martin, at left tackle, has gotten most of the scrutiny this year, but he has actually played well so far in the preseason. The right guard position has been the biggest question mark, with second year player Josh Samuda likely getting his second chance with the starting lineup tonight.
