Dolphins vs. Texans: 5 Keys to the Game for Miami
Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

If the Miami Dolphins could choose which team they would play in Week 1, the Houston Texans might literally be the their last choice. 

Not only are the Texans a budding Super Bowl contender, but they also have beaten the Dolphins in each of their six meetings. The first four meetings were decided by three points or less, but the last two games were decided by seven and 10 points, respectively. 

This rise in point differential is indicative of the Texans' rise and the Dolphins' demise. It only will continue to grow unless the Phins execute perfectly and attack Houston's few weaknesses this Sunday.

Although Peter King of Sports Illustrated certainly doesn't see the Dolphins putting up a fight—"Of the 16 games on opening weekend, there's one I can't imagine the underdog winning"—they just might have a shot if they emphasize these five keys.
