Dolphins take 17-0 lead on overmatched Texans

It seems like the Texans are starting to fall apart under Lovie Smith, and Mike Florio and Chris Simms don't expect Houston to even cover the double-digit spread against the dangerous Dolphins.

The change at quarterback hasn’t helped the Texans.

Houston has 17 yards and two first downs; Kyle Allen threw an interception that nearly went for a pick-six; and the Dolphins lead 17-0.

Andrew Van Ginkel made the easiest interception of his career when Allen threw it directly to the Dolphins linebacker. Van Ginkel’s 23-yard return left the offense to go only 3 yards for a touchdown, and Jeff Wilson cashed in on the next play.

Allen, starting in place of the benched Davis Mills, is 5-of-10 for 25 yards.

The Dolphins have 151 yards.

Tua Tagovailoa has completed 11 of 18 passes for 141 yards and a touchdown pass to Durham Smythe.
