If you don;t know by now the Dolphins demolished the Houston Texans on Sunday. And many Dolfans were there to see it, including this little Piggy.
The win broke an inexplicable streak: The Dolphins were 0-6 against the Texans entering a game. Well that changed in a big way. The game was over by the end of the 1st quarter. By halftime the Dolphins had a 41-0 lead over the Texans.
The Dolfans won the toss but deffered. The Texans promptly when 3 and out losing 2 yards on their opening drive.
On their opening drive the Dolphins threw a few short passes to Jarivs Landry and ran Lamar Miller for a few first downs.
But the big play was a slant that was right on the money to Rishard Matthews who took the pass 53 yards to the house! Most of the 53 yards was after the catch. In this pic Prawn points out who Matthews is – and if you needed him to do that you are an idiot.
So then on the next drive the Texans gained a total of minus 3 yards. They went 3 and out again.
The Dolphins also went 3 and out after failing to covert a 3rd and 1. And then they punted to the Texans again. Who gained 7 yards – which is a total of 2 yards in 3 drives. Guess what…they went 3 and out again.
And the Dolphins only managed 1 play on their next drive – but it was a good one. It took Jarvis Landry 15 seconds to run 50 yards. He basically covered the whole field. Landry caught a pass about 15 yards downfield near the sideline. It was an easy first down – step out right?
Nope – not Landry.
So gain a few more yards on the sideline
Nope – not Landry
He broke a bunch of tackles – and the downfield blocking was excellent
Boom one of the most exciting 50 yards TDs in Dolphin History. Check out the breakdown.
Okay Landry that’s enough…
No…okay…MVP MVP MVP
After the Texans lost 3 yards on their next drive and went 3 and out…again…Landry scored his 2nd TD to give the Dolphins a 21-0 lead.
Landry finished the game with 5 catches for 83 yards. Anyone who didn’t watch the game will not gawk at his performance. But trust me he was out of this world fighting for every inch
So now its Lamar Miller’s turn to catch a 50 yard TD pass.
After the Dolphins went up 21 -0 on Landry’s 2nd score, the Texans pooped on their next drive.
The Dolphins drove the ball 83 yards finishing with a 53 yard screen pass for a TD to Lamar Miller.
Maybe Landry’s stats aren;t that impressive. But Miller’s are. 175 yards on the ground and a long 85 yards TD run (not pictured here but it took the lead to 35-0) and 61 yards receiving – most of it on that screen.
And don’t forget the defense.
All those 3 and outs early set the tone.
This is what it looks like when you score 2 pick sixes in consecutive weeks.
And this is what 2 sacks each looks like. Wake had 2 and Suh had 2
And this is a happy coach!
and guess who had an excellent game too…
4 TDs, 0 ints a perfect passer rating and an NFL record for consecutive completions (over 2 games)
Bring on the Patriots!
