If the Texans win at Miami, they'd finish 5-3 on the road. It would be the first time they've had a winning record away from Reliant Stadium.
They won at Tennessee, Cincinnati, Buffalo and St. Louis. They lost at Arizona, Indianapolis and Jacksonville.
Until this season, the best they'd done on the road was 4-4 in 2004, when they finished 7-9.
In Gary Kubiak's first three seasons, the Texans were 1-7, 2-6 and 2-6 on the road. Now they've done a 180 -- winning on the road and losing at home.
They have a 2-4 record at home, with the New England game remaining.
Entering his fourth season, two of Kubiak's goals were to improve on the road and in the AFC South. He's batting .500. Even if they lose at Miami, the Texans will still tie their best road record.
The Texans finished 1-5 with five consecutive defeats in the AFC South.
