Texans Franchise QB? Rookie Davis Mills Sets NFL Record vs. Patriots
By Anthony Wood, SI.com
During Houston’s 25-22 loss on Sunday, the third-round rookie went 21 of 29 for 312 passing yards, three touchdowns, zero interceptions and to cap it all off rushed for an extra two yards. Mills finished the last-minute loss with a QB rating of 141.7 – good for second-highest in the NFL in Week 5 behind only a certain Tom Brady.
Fun side note: Mills was only two years old when Brady was drafted back in 2000.
Anyway, back to Mills.
After this solid performance against the Patriots which included a 67-yard touchdown pass to Chris Moore, Mills became the first rookie quarterback in NFL history to finish a game with over 300 passing yards, three or more passing touchdowns, and a QB rating of over 140.
