The Houston Texans and Miami Dolphins Week 12 matchup is projected to be one of the most lopsided of the day. BetMGM has the Dolphins as double-digit favorites.
Miami will remain at home following its Week 11 bye for a p.m. ET Sunday matchup against the Texans at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, which will air on CBS. The Dolphins control their destiny to an AFC East title, and a win over Houston would keep them atop the division. But Miami might be in store for something better: a bye in the first round of the playoffs and the No. 1-seed in the AFC. With their new-and-improved offense that’s headlined by Tyreek Hill, the Dolphins trail only the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC standings by one game with six weeks of the season remaining.
Houston doesn’t just have one problem; it has many. And when Miami’s high-octane offense takes the field, the Texans may have another. It’s unlikely that the Texans offense can trade blows with the Miami offense. But perhaps Dameon Pierce and the offense could find enough success against Miami’s defense to give Houston a realistic chance at picking up its second win of the season.
Texans’ coach Lovie Smith will start Kyle Allen at quarterback and bench Davis Mills. .
