Texans vs. Dolphins: 7 Reasons Why Sunday's Game is a Must Win For Miami

Miami is coming off of a pure, old-fashioned butt-whipping, and on Sunday they'll face off with a team that they've never defeated: the Houston Texans.

These two teams couldn't be more opposite right now. Houston is coming off an impressive and dominating win over the Peyton Manning-less Indianapolis Colts, while the Dolphins are coming off an embarrassing defeat to the New England Patriots, where the score was closer than the actual game itself.

One could make the argument that in the NFL, every game is a must win; however, it's usually not the end of the world if a team starts 0-2 (as the Dolphins proved in 2008 when they started 0-2 but then finished 11-5). 

I beg to differ. This game is extremely important for Miami to win; if not, their season will only continue to go on a downward spiral.

But why is it so important for Miami to win on Sunday? Why should the Dolphins treat it like a playoff game?
