The Texans have never lost to the Dolphins, as they hold a 7-0 record in the all-time series, including a 3-0 mark on the road. In Week 6 against Jacksonville (10/18), Houston recorded its fifth game in franchise history with at least three interceptions and 3.0 sacks. S Andre Hal led the way as he became the second player in team history with two interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown, in a single game. OLB Whitney Mercilus led the team with his sixth career multiple-sack game.
Offensively, WR DeAndre Hopkins tied a franchise record with his fourth consecutive 100-yard receiving game, while registering his second two touchdown game of the season. QB Brian Hoyer posted his third straight game with over a 100 passer rating and two-or-more touchdown passes. Over the last three weeks, Hoyer ranks second in the NFL in passer rating (113.6) and tied for second in passing touchdowns (seven).
The Texans are averaging 297.8 net passing yards and 393.8 total net yards per game this season, which rank fourth and sixth in the NFL, respectively. Defensively, Houston is allowing teams to convert only 31.3 percent of their third down opportunities, which leads the league.
The Dolphins are coming off their most decisive victory of the season in Interim Head Coach Dan Campbell's first game at the helm, a 38-10 win over the Tennessee Titans at Nissan Stadium. QB Ryan Tannehill threw two touchdowns, while RB Lamar Miller and WR Jarvis Landry added scores on the ground. Defensively, DE Cameron Wake notched 4.0 sacks, an NFL single-game high in 2015.
