The Miami Dolphins entered the 2015 gold anniversary season having victories against every NFL team but one. The Houston Texans. In seven previous attempts the Dolphins had come up short and it appeared that after the firing of Joe Philbin after four weeks, the Dolphins would face an uphill battle to beat the Texans at home.
On October 25th the Dolphins took the field at Sun-Life Stadium coming off an emotional and lopsided win a week before in Tennessee under interim head coach Dan Campbell. Campbell led his team onto the field amid cries of “culture change” and pleas for physical play.
The Dolphins jumped out to a quick 21-0 first quarter lead and by half time had posted their single largest score in the first half leading the Texans 41-0 at the break. Miami would finally put the nails in the Texans coffin winning 44-26 and finally ending the seven game drought. The victory unfortunately was short-lived as Miami lost their next two games.
