The Dolphins are having trouble with their pass game, which speaks well to the Texans' defensive prowess. If they want to close out the deal, however, they need to stop committing stupid penalties and find a way to actually shut down the downfield passing game.
Chad Henne is having a field day with long bombs down the field. The Dolphins have not had great success capitalizing on those big plays yet, but the momentum swings a little bit further their way every time Henne connects with one of his receivers for long yardage.
If the Texans want to take full control of the game, they must get better penetration against the Dolphins' offensive line to increase the pressure on Henne. He’ll have a harder time achieving those huge pass plays if he’s busy scrambling to avoid a sack.
