The Houston Texans will face the Miami Dolphins on Thursday Night Football and have a solid chance of earning the win and gaining their fifth straight victory.
Let’s start early on the predictions for the Houston Texans against the Miami Dolphins for Thursday Night football and just say this … J.J. Watt will add two sacks in this game, as he didn’t have a sack on Sunday. Watt will make up for the sackless game against the Jacksonville Jaguars and will gain two sacks on his former quarterback Brock Osweiler at NRG Stadium.
Watt enters this Thursday Night game with seven sacks in seven games this season, while he also has 26 combined tackles as well. Just as important is Watt has four forced fumbles, which could come into play over this game as well.
Now for the rest of the Texans, there could be the fact maybe the Texans offensive line could not allow a sack, but let’s be honest that can’t be a bold prediction because it won’t happen because Watson has been sacked at least, once in every game this season.

In five of the seven games this season, Watson has been sacked at least three times, and in those occasions he’s been sacked seven times twice in a game against the Indianapolis Colts and Buffalo Bills.
Both the Texans and Dolphins also enter this game at 4-3 overall, but with two completely different paths to their overall record. The Texans lost three games in a row to start the season, followed by four consecutive wins. The Dolphins began the season at 3-0, followed by a 1-3 record in the past four games.
The Texans have a solid chance to win this game as they are the favorites by the Las Vegas experts by -7.5, which should make for interesting times with the sports books as all but one Texans final has been decided by seven points or fewer.
