The Houston Texans travel to take on the Miami Dolphins this afternoon in hopes of proving that their 34-7 rout of the Peyton Manning-less Indianapolis Colts was no fluke. Dolphins quarterback Chad Henne will be under the spotlight again, despite passing for over 400 yards in a crushing 38-24 loss to the New England Patriots on Monday Night Football.

The Texans attacked the Colts on both sides of the ball, despite being without their stud running back Arian Foster who led the league in rushing just a season ago. However, second year back Ben Tate performed well, gaining 116 yards on 24 carries while scoring one touchdown.

The Texans have a balanced offense, allowing a lot more play action plays than the Dolphins saw against the pass-happy Patriots a week ago and will certainly present a similar challenge to that of what they faced last week.

The Dolphins on the other hand, are looking to improve on their rush offense and get rookie running back Daniel Thomas more involved in the offense, as he was sidelined for the duration of the Week 1 game against the Patriots.
