In a game from NFL Week 8, we will see Miami Dolphins at Houston Texans.
The Dolphins started the season really well but the Ryan Tannehill injury dragged them back. It is unclear if he will play in this game and if not, he will again be replaced by Brock Osweiler. Even though Osweiler is playing well at the moment, he is still lacking the ability to do the needed when counted the most. Furthermore, Miami start their games relatively slow and they fall behind big time in the first half.
On the other side, we have a team that lost its first three games of the season before turning it around and winning 4 straight games. They have the ability to see the other team’s weakness and defense and exploit it. For example, they ran the ball exceptionally well against the Jaguars and they took the win in style. Jadeveon Clowney and J.J. Watt are forcing fumble after fumble.
Watson needs to be good again if the Texans are to win this home again. I’m not saying that it’s going to be easy but I believe that the Texans will find the Dolphins’ vulnerabilities and they will exploit them. Watson is building momentum with each game he’s playing and this can be his best one.
