But Miami's defensive unit played pretty well. The Texans scored plenty of points, but mostly because they were able to take advantage of short fields that were the result of four Miami turnovers.
Houston had a much tougher time sustaining long scoring drives against the Dolphins, as Miami didn't allow a touchdown drive longer than 54 yards.
They also allowed 83 yards to Houston's 35 rushing attempts, which works out to just 2.4 yards per carry.
Houston dominated overall, but Miami didn't exactly lay down. The Texans were continually forced into third down situations, and Miami was often able to hold its ground, with Houston converting on 7 of 17 third downs.
