Tyrod Taylor has not had the best luck when it comes to Week 2 in the NFL.
Poor Tyrod Taylor. The man takes the Buffalo Bills to the playoffs a few years ago, and since then he can’t catch a break. It was in 2018 which Taylor had his final start for the Cleveland Browns. Taylor was replaced after being down 14-0 against the New York Jets in primetime for Baker Mayfield. Mayfield won the game and the job, and Taylor went on to join the Los Angeles Chargers in 2020.
Taylor once again led his team to a Week 1 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals. Then came the infamous lung puncture by a Chargers team doctor moments before the game which unexpectedly started Justin Herbert’s career. They’d lose on a miracle 58-yard field goal in overtime from Kansas City to lose the game.
Of course, it happened again this week, leaving the game that Taylor had performed so well. So now the Texans have to either ride with Davis Mills or possibly play Deshaun Watson.
Tyrod Taylor’s injury might just open the door for Deshaun Watson
Watson was ruled out before the game due to the legal issues he’s facing, so there was no chance for him to play at all coming into Sunday’s game. If Davis Mills gets hurt, are the Texans really going to play a position player at QB- like Justin Reid? Who knows who the true emergency QB really is, but it may not hurt to play Watson.
Is it going to look bad publicly? Yes. But if Mills is struggling, what will David Culley do? That’s the predicament if a street quarterback isn’t picked up. What do our readers think? Should the Texans play Mills, Watson, or even trade Watson somewhere else?
