    The only hope I see us having is that arguably our biggest strength(DL)is going up against their weakest part of the team(OL). If we can exploit that, we have a shot in this game. Maybe wishful thinking, but after 37yrs. it is all I have left.

    Win or lose, at minimum a close scoring game would be nice.

    I really don't see Houston as a serious title contender. So it's not like we're trying to take down the '85 Bears again, but this would an incredibly unlikely win. It would be a nice way to start the Ryan Tannehill legend.

    Maybe Tannehill has a beats Newtons rookie debut performance?

    400+ Yards and 2 TD's?

    One can hope right?

    In 2003, the Texans traveled to Miami to take on the heavy favorite Dolphins on opening day. It was the lock of the week that Miami would win. Houston upset the Dolphins 21-20.

    In 2012, the Dolphins travel to Houston to take on the heavy favorite Texans on opening day. It is the lock of the week that Houston will win. Time for payback.

    Haha! I was somewhat thinking...throughout all these times we have played Houston, we always seemed to have the better team...they weren't really that good up until last year. Now let's hope the tides have turned and when we are now expected to lose, we actually win!

    And Brooks Reid..etc. Their defense is great...but I was just making a point as to why the original comment was made that we would have an advantage...Cam Wake is the best pass rusher that will step on the field Sunday

    Haha, yeah, as a Texans fan, I'm nervous about the potential karma swing. I was at that game in 2003, as well as every other Texans-Dolphins game in Miami.

    Anyone remember the much unheralded No-Name defense? You know, the one that went undefeated in '72? Ya just never know, do ya? They certainly didn't then . . . blindsided everyone in the league, pretty much.

    Exactly, hopefully one of their players tell one of ours "See you after practice" like Madison did.

    Houston is going to rip Miami a new one. This will get ugly

    It's going to be like 2009 in Atlanta on opening day when Miami was never in the game and the Falcons cruised. They just made the Dolphins look stupid up and down the field.

    It will be the same on Sunday in Houston.

    I am going to notify coach so that the Fins save the trouble of going to Houston to lose. Thanks for the heads up, I hate it when teams play games the fans already know they are going to lose.

    Starting slow/bad was a Sparano trademark. The team used to start strong and fade at the end of the season.

    I will be very interested to see how organized the team looks and how hard they play on Sunday.

    Surprisingly, Derek Newton looks like a polar opposite of Eric Winston. Winston was beast run blocker liability in pass pro. Newton is quality pass blocker whiffs on run pro. I don't think Wake will be as disruptive as you think. He'll still be good for a few pressures, and maybe a sack.

    Rams vs. Packers, nothing is guaranteed in this league.

    Just some advice from a beat up Dolphin fan of 30+ years...Hold on to preseason optimism like Trump holds onto a greenback cause pretty soon negativity will be all that's left.

    It would be great if that would happen. One thing we don't have going for us. They have Gary Kubiac as head coach instead of Dave Wannstadt.

    Kubiac won't be stupid enough to go for 2 with too much time left in the 4th like Wanny did.
