Game: Houston Texans at Miam Dolphins 

Prediction: Last week the Texans won a battle between one-win teams as they defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars on the road. Now they travel further down Florida for a battle of two win teams. The Dolphins host Houston this Sunday and are about a week removed from looking like a complete tire fire. Joe Philbin was canned and Dan Campbell is their interim coach. The Dolphins played hard for him and got themselves a solid win agains the Titans.

This week though the Dolphins will be brought back to the reality that they simply are not a very good team. They don’t have a true number one receiver and their defense was terrible before beating up on the Titans.

Look for Brian Hoyer to continue his solid play and of course DeAndre Hopkins will be unstoppable, as always. The Texans get a second win during the softest stretch of their schedule.

Final score: Houston Texans 27, Miam Dolphins 23
