Dolphins Seek First Ever Win vs Texans

Fresh off vanquishing their nemesis from Indianapolis in Week 1, the Houston Texans get a team in Week 2 to which they have never lost.

The Texans were 2-16 SU lifetime against the Colts before their romp Sunday and are 5-0 SU career vs the Dolphins, a team coming off a Monday Night loss.

Miami was scorched for nearly 630 total yards by the Patriots and face another vaunted offense in Week 2.
This shapes up as a possible OVER play with Arian Foster possibly back in the Texans lineup. (The best OVER line as of Friday was at TopBet at 48.)
