Miami Dolphins defeat Houston Texans, 44-26

The Miami Dolphins had a great day.

Ryan Tannehill established an NFL record for most consecutive completions at 25. He completed 18 in a row today and had seven in a row to end the Tennessee game last week.

The Miami quarterback also posted a 158.3 passer rating in throwing four touchdown passes. That is a perfect rating, by the way.

Lamar Miller rushed for 175 yards on merely 14 carries.

Ndamukong Suh picked up a couple of sacks -- his first in a Miami uniform -- to go along with his usual offsides penalty.

Reshad Jones had an interception which he returned for a touchdown. It was the second consecutive week he had a pick six.

Rishard Matthews and Lamar Miller caught TD passes while Jarvis Landry caught two.

It was a complete team victory.

Miami Dolphins 44. Houston Texans 26.

The Texans had a day from hell. Their backup QB missed the team flight, they were down 41-0 at halftime, and they reportedly lost starting running back Arian Foster for the season with an Achilles injury. 

Was it perfect? No.

Jamar Taylor was in the crosshairs all day long. Jarvis Landry seemed to tweak something which forced him to miss much of the second half.

But it was darn impressive.
