We really hate the fact that we are going with the general public in this one. Houston is just a significantly better team than Miami is, and it isn’t really all that close. The Dolphins are going to be starting on the road with a rookie quarterback, and that just isn’t going to cut it against a ferocious Houston pass rush. RB Arian Foster is considered questionable for this one, but even if he doesn’t go, it’s not like RB Ben Tate can’t rush for 150 yards on his own without Foster in there. QB Matt Schaub is back, and he is going to want to get off to a great start after missing the end of last year, including Houston’s first two playoff games in franchise history. Go with the Texans here to come out of the blocks on fire and win this one by at least two touchdowns.
Dolphins @ Texans Pick: Houston -12.5
Dolphins @ Texans Score Prediction: Houston 30 – Miami 14
