Dolphins Vs. Texans Score: Houston Up 27-10 Through Three Quarters

After a disastrous second quarter -- really, it was just the last two minutes of the second quarter—the Miami Dolphins scored their first touchdown of the season and now trail the Houston Texans 27-10 through three quarters.

On the first drive of the second half, the Dolphins defense forced Houston to go three and out. Donnie Jones fired a 49-yard punt to the Miami 28, and Dolphins returner Marcus Thigpen returned it 72 yards for a touchdown with 13:30 left in the third.

Houston countered with an 11-play drive that ended with a 40-yard Shayne Graham field goal. Graham is now 2-of-3 on field-goal attempts Sunday with makes from 35 and 40 yards.
