Dolphins 44, Texans 26

Life under interim coach going swell

MIAMI — The Dolphins led 35-0 midway through the first half, and as the rest of the sideline celebrated, interim coach Dan Campbell stood alone, staring at the scoreboard and keeping a straight face.

For him it was business as usual, with blowouts the norm so far.

Miami's turnaround under its new coach continued as Ryan Tannehill completed his first 18 attempts and threw for four scores in the first 16 minutes to help beat Houston. The drubbing was even more emphatic than Miami's 38-10 win at Tennessee last week in Campbell's debut.

"It's not me; it's this team," Campbell said. "These guys want it. To watch the transformation they've made and the ownership they've begun to take, I'm glad I'm part of it."

Tannehill extended his two-game streak to 25 consecutive completions, an NFL record, before he threw his only incompletion in the fourth quarter.
