It is the second consecutive week that both players have been inactive. Green has a bruised knee and Jones has a separated shoulder. The Texans are also without Andre Johnson, who is inactive for the third straight game with a knee sprain.
Watson throws TD pass to help Texans over Lions 30-23 Deshaun Watson took advantage of one series in his preseason debut looking sharp in directing a 75-yard drive capped by a 4-yard touchdown pass to DeAndre Hopkins to help the Houston Texans to a 30-23 win over the Detroit Lions on Saturday night.
The Texans have gotten off track the past two weeks, but QB Matt Schaub is still been playing at a high level and continues to show that he is the leader of the offense, if not the entire team. The Dolphins are off to a rough start and it's been something different every week that keeps Miami from earning a win. The defense hasn't been playing well and the offense has been inconsistent. These are two teams who are due for a win and the team that commits the least amount of mistakes will come out on top. However, this is easier said than done. Miami head coach Cam Cameron wants his offense to form an identity, which it hasn't yet. He needs to have production running the ball and keep the passing game simple and safe for veteran QB Trent Green. The Miami defense is giving up big plays, which is uncharacteristic of defensive coordinator Dom Capers. Houston head coach Gary Kubiak will try to take advantage of the weak Dolphins defense and keep them on the field as much as possible.
