The Miami Dolphins’ 44-26 victory over the Houston Texans marks their second consecutive victory after firing head coach Joe Philbin and promoting Dan Campbell to interim head coach.
The Dolphins were firing on all cylinders. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill extended a consecutive completion streak to 25, which is an NFL record. Tannehill ended their Week Six victory over the Tennessee Titans with seven straight completions, and started this game with 18 completions.
At halftime, the Dolphins were up 41-0.
Tannehill completed 18 of 19 passes for 282 yards, four touchdowns, and no picks. Running back Lamar Miller ran for 175 yards and touchdown, which includes an 85-yard run that reached paydirt. Miller also caught three passes for 61 yards and a touchdown. Wide receiver Jarvis Landry hauled in five receptions, 85 yards, and a touchdown.
Dolphins safety Reshad Jones scored on a 23-yard pick six, and kicker Andrew Franks connected on a 53-yard field goal.
The Dolphins are 3-3 and will face the New England Patriots this Thursday.
