HOUSTON – The Dolphins' 3-0 start is now a distant memory. 

Miami (4-4) lost for the fourth time in five games Thursday night, this one a 42-23 loss to the hands of the surging Houston Texans (5-3). 

It was Miami's fourth loss in a row in Thursday night games. The Dolphins have been outscored 140-37 in those four losses. 

Brock Osweiler completed 21 of 37 passes for 241 yards. But he also threw a costly interception. 

DeVante Parker returned to the lineup and caught six passes for 134 yards after a week in which his agent publicly criticized Dolphins head coach Adam Gase.

The Dolphins will return to Hard Rock Stadium on Nov. 4 to take on the New York Jets.
