Miami have been homebodies in their last two games, but they are heading out on Thursday. They will take on Houston at 8:20 p.m. The odds don’t look promising for Miami, but the bigger the opponent is, the harder they fall.
On Sunday, Miami came up short against Detroit, falling 21-32. A silver lining for Miami was the play of Brock Osweiler, who passed for 239 yards and 2 touchdowns.
Meanwhile, Houston might be getting used to good results now that the squad has four wins in a row. They walked away with a 20-7 win over Jacksonville. 20 seems to be a good number for Houston as the team scooped up a win with the same point total in their matchup last week.
Houston’s victory lifted them to 4-3 while Miami’s loss dropped them down to 4-3. In their victory, Houston relied heavily on Lamar Miller, who rushed for 100 yards and 1 touchdown. Miami will need to find a way to minimize his impact if they want to win.
