Ryan Tannehill's debut against Texans a nightmare

Here's what else we learned during the Houston Texans' ho-hum 30-10 victory over the Miami Dolphins.

» This game was actually close until the Dolphins' offense imploded in the second quarter. They turned the ball over four times in four possessions including three Tannehill interceptions. At one point, they turned it over on three straight plays. It's going to be one of those kind of years.

» So much for Arian Foster's injury. He carried the ball 25 times for 79 yards and two scores. Ben Tate only had five carries behind him.

» The win wasn't even the biggest Texans story of the day. Matt Schaub celebrated his return to the field with a big contract extension. So much for the onset of the T.J. Yates era.

» Dolphins running back Daniel Thomas left with a head injury and did not return.
