Picture - Davis Mills throws first touchdown pass as Texans draw within 7-6 at halftime

Davis Mills looked exactly what he is on the Texans’ first four drives. The rookie quarterback, who is making his first start, had only 19 yards passing with 1:37 remaining in the half.

The Texans had only 17 plays, three first downs and four punts.

So no one saw this coming. . . .

Mills directed a seven-play, 64-yard touchdown drive. He completed every pass on the drive, aside from a spike to stop the clock, for 60 yards and a touchdown. Mills found Anthony Miller for a 1-yard touchdown.

Joey Slye, who spent the past two seasons with the Panthers, missed the extra point.

So despite the Panthers, who were heavy favorites, outplaying the Texans for most of the first half, they lead only 7-6.

The Panthers lost running back Christian McCaffrey early in the second quarter. He will not return because of a hamstring injury, the team announced.
