The Texans' offense needs a spark, figured head coach David Culley, perhaps assessing the team's 2 and 8 record.
Friday Culley announced that Davis Mills will be the starting quarterback for the rest of the season.
Mills replaces Tyrod Taylor, who has struggled over the last four games tossing more interceptions than touchdowns. Taylor also has a torn ligament in his left wrist, never good for someone who has to take a snap from a Center for a living. Taylor was benched in the third quarter of last weekend's loss to the Colts.
Mills started six games earlier this season, losing all six, and will helm this afternoon's game against Seattle kicking off at noon at NRG Stadium.
