The (4-3) Houston Texans host the (4-3) Miami Dolphins for Thursday Night Football. Kickoff is at 8:20 PM ET on the NFL Network and FOX.

The Texans are winners of four straight, while the Dolphins have lost three of their past four games. The New England Patriots hope these trends stay in tact and that the Dolphins lose. This would strengthen the Patriots hold atop the AFC East, while also propping the Texans up as leaders in the AFC South ahead of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Use this as the open thread for discussion.
