The score was a lot closer than it should have been, but the Miami Dolphins came away with their fifth straight victory after defeating the Houston Texans 30 - 15. The Dolphins were very sharp in the first half and this game looked like it was over by halftime. Tua Tagovailoa was benched in the third quarter due to the sizable lead, but the Texans battled back as the offense struggled without Tua under center. Injuries are becoming the theme of this Dolphins team as Terron Armstead and Austin Jackson both suffered injuries during the game and their absence was felt along the offensive line. The Dolphins will be traveling out west next weekend as they take on the San Francisco 49ers.
