On Thursday evening, Brock Osweiler will start his third consecutive game for the Miami Dolphins at Houston.
Head coach Adam Gase said the 27-year-old quarterback will get the nod in place of Ryan Tannehill.
Osweiler is 1-1 as a starter filling in for the injured Tannehill. The seventh-year veteran has thrown 654 yards and six touchdowns this season, leading Miami to a 31-28 victory on Oct. 21 against the Chicago Bears.
Osweiler completed 22-of-31 passes for 239 yards and two touchdowns in a losing effort to the Detroit Lions last Sunday.
"He's done a really good job," Gase said Monday. "
Thursday night's game against the Texans will pit Osweiler against his former team.
Osweiler signed a four-year, $72 million contract with the Texans in 2016 but lost the starting job after throwing a franchise-record 16 interceptions.
