Taylor, who missed six games with a hamstring injury, led the Texans to the red zone on their first possession. But Taylor threw an interception in the end zone on a pass intended for Brandin Cooks. Jevon Holland picked it.
Behind Myles Gaskin, the Dolphins went 80 yards in 12 plays. Gaskin scored on a 6-yard run, taking the direct snap and running off right tackle.
The Dolphins lead 7-0.
Jacoby Brissett 5-of-9 for 58 yards, while Taylor is 2-of-5 for 32 yards and the interception in his return.
