Countdown To Kickoff: Texans v. Dolphins

Someone’s winning their second game this afternoon, whether they want to or not. Right?

No rational person expected the 2021 Houston Texans to win many games. The Dolphins, on the other, they had expectations. They went 10-6 last year, and the arrow seemed pointed up. But Miami is 1-7, just like the woeful Texans. Brian Flores and Chris Grier, celebrated for their success less than a season ago, now find themselves in jeopardy of losing their jobs. Tua Tagovailoa, thought to be the future of the franchise, has only heard clamor for Deshaun Watson to replace him grow louder. It’s ugly in South Florida.

Will it get uglier this this afternoon? I mean, one of these teams has to get a win today. Unless they tie, which would be both sad and fitting.

The game thread will post at 11:45 a.m. CST. Until then, converse about the game below.
