Miami put a hurting on the Houston Texans, leaping to a 41-0 lead by halftime. Much of Miami’s early production came from Lamar Miller, who finished with 17 offensive touches for 236 total yards. The fourth-year running back had two huge scoring plays — an 85-yard run and a 54-yard reception — in a 44-26 win.
T.Y. Hilton, WR, Indianapolis Colts
T.Y. Hilton was not spotted much during the Colts’ 27-21 loss to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, but he was hard to miss when the ball did find his hands. Although he caught only four passes, two of them were huge scoring strikes. The first one was an 87-yarder; the encore was a 46-yard touchdown reception. Hilton finished with 150 yards (37.5 yards per catch) in the losing effort.
