2018 Thursday Night Football: Miami Dolphins vs. Houston Texans October 25, 2018 by Marc Jerbs

On Thursday, the Miami Dolphins will face the Houston Texans in Week 8 of the 2018 NFL Season. Game time is set at 8:30PM ET and will be played at the NRG Stadium in Houston Texas.

This Thursday Night Football's match is the first meeting between these teams since 2015. Miami will visit Houston with Brock Osweiler starting at QB. He has done a superb job filling in for injured Ryan Tannehill.

He's thrown 5 touchdowns, 2 interceptions and completed 75% of his passes for over 600 yards in the last two games he started.

QB Brock Osweiler was a former Texans' player in 2016. He knows the capabilities of his former team especially with Houston's pass defense unit of J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney. Expect Miami to protect their QB at all times.

Likewise, the Texans will also look on to pounce Miami's QB Deshaun Watson. He's been playing with a chest injury in their last three games. He's a tough guy that could play through pain as long as his team wins.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed the Houston Texans as a 7-point favorite to beat the Miami Dolphins on Thursday night.
