Despite 5 turnovers, the Dolphins managed to beat the Texans yesterday. It was the Dolphins first win since week one and ends the seven game losing streak. It wasn’t pretty from the offense as they were once again without Tua Tagovailoa, who is dealing with a fractured finger now. Jacoby Brissett filled in today and could possibly start again on Thursday if Tua is not ready to go again.

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