Three Things to consider on this sports Wednesday:
In the next breath, Watt told NBC that was nothing that couldn't be gleaned from a boom mike used for any regular game broadcast.
Now, if somehow the Texans were able to figure out the route calls, well, that might be a different story.
"But that was mostly short-yardage," James said.
Sure enough, the Dolphins went a combined 2 for 13 on third and fourth downs on Sunday, including 1 for 6 when needing 5 yards or fewer for the conversion.
The only success in those spots came on a 24-yard checkdown to Jorvorskie Lane on third and 1 from the Dolphins' 15.
Thing 2: No matter what you read elsewhere (even here) about the Dolphins' three trips to the red zone on Sunday, they weren't completely fruitless.
The first one, which reached the Houston 14-yard-line late in the first quarter, produced a Dan Carpenter field goal. Only problem was Reggie Bush had to lose 7 yards on a third-down fumble before it could happen.
Thing 3: Of the nine NFL teams that failed to produce a single takeaway in Week 1, eight lost, including the Dolphins.
Yes, the same guy who spurned the Dolphins this offseason.
Going back to the preseason, the Dolphins are now minus-six in turnover margin.
Kevin Coyle's defense is still looking for its first interception, although Sean Smith had one erroneously wiped out by penalty at Carolina.
