Yes, final week, we called for the Houston Texans to bench Davis Mills after a foul displaying towards the Washington Commanders. They gave a shot to Kyle Allen to supply a spark in the offense for his or her sport towards the Miami Dolphins.
Houston bought off to a horrific begin to the season. In reality, right here’s how every of their offensive drives in the primary half ended:
