Dolphins vs Texans prediction, odds and picks – November 7 | NFL Week 9
The Miami Dolphins host the Houston Texans on Sunday in a rare battle between two teams with one win each through Week 8 of an NFL season.
After winning their first game of the season against the New England Patriots, the Dolphins’ season has been a disaster. From injuries to rumors that the team acquired Deshaun Watson and traded Tua Tagovailoa, the team did everything but win and have now lost seven on the trot.
Speaking of Watson, the team that still employs him will not play him this Sunday. The Texans managed to keep their star floating, but they won’t be fielding him anytime soon. They signed Tyrod Taylor to replace Watson, but an injury knocked him out of the game for the Texans’ last seven games. He will get dressed on Sunday and will want to mark his return with a victory.
