Dolphins Vs. Texans, Week 1: Houston Exposes Weakness In Miami Attack

The 30-10 loss the Miami Dolphins suffered at the hands of the Houston Texans in their opening week game is not exactly the type of start Miami and rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill was looking for, as many facets of the Dolphins' attack were suspect in Week 1.

The guys over at The Phinsider ran through the tough opening outing, pinpointing Tannehill's inauspicious start — and his three interceptions — as part of the reason the Dolphins couldn't hang with Houston.

Ryan Tannehill went against a tough Texans D and did not step up when needed. His stat line was brutal 20/36, 219 yards, 0 TD's & 3 INT's. It was safe to say that all the INT's were NOT his fault but he learned a valuable lesson about stepping up and not locking onto one receiver.

There was plenty of optimism at the site, however, about the starts of a handful of other Dolphins, including running back Reggie Bush and linebacker Koa Misi.

Koa Misi played very well in the defense. Our corners got abused for the most part, Wake was doubled and a ghost for most the game, and Dansby needs to be more of a captain.

Reggie Bush looked good. He made a few great plays running inside and is still lightning quick. He may finish with double the total yards than anyone else on the team.
