The Dolphins defense made it too easy for Deshaun Watson and the Texans offense. It was pretty disgusting to watch as receivers were just wide open with no one around them. Bobby McCain arguably had his worst game as a pro and doesn’t appear to be healthy yet. The defense is a tad younger and it really shows with all the miscommunication. Hopefully the team can get some defensive woes fixed up by their next game, as they have a longer week to prepare. I wish I could say it will get better, but I just can’t get my hopes up until the team shows me something.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
