Texans vs. Dolphins: 7 Things We Learned from Miami's 24-13 Loss

The Miami Dolphins lost 24-13 to the Houston Texans on Sunday afternoon, shoving them to the bottom of the AFC East with an 0-2 record. 

Sunday's loss marked Miami's eighth home loss in their last nine attempts, and recurring themes continue to smuggle this team's chances at competing. Home-field struggles, special teams, red-zone struggles and questionable coaching decisions have dragged the 'Fins down for the past two seasons, and it looks like those worries have leaked into 2011. 

On the bright side, Daniel Thomas had an extremely impressive debut, Brandon Marshall continues to shred opposing secondaries and the Dolphins' pass rush was unstoppable. 

Miami had opportunities to win this game, which bodes well for the rest of the season, but if they cannot soothe those recurring concerns, they will fall into the Andrew Luck Sweepstakes.
