The long-awaited return of Tyrod Taylor came to end once he entered the game against Miami.

Tyrod Taylor got the ball after the Texans defense forced a punt from the Dolphins. Tyrod marched his team down the field, coupled with a handful of good runs from Phillip Lindsay. Tyrod had 2 completions for 34 yards.

Once the Texans were in the red zone, they had a chance to score and take their first lead in a game since going ahead of the New England Patriots a few weeks ago.  That didn’t happen as Taylor threw two passes over the head of the Brandin Cooks. The third pass was an interception in the corner of the endzone by Dolphins corner Jevon Holland, the first of his career.

There is still a lot of time left in this game, but turning the ball over in that instance is the worst-case scenario come true. Houston’s troubles with scoring points have been well documented on Toro Times.

Tyrod Taylor still gives the Houston Texans the best chance to win

No offense to Davis Mills, but a third-round rookie is a rookie for a reason. Mills did have some bright spots, but it always felt like the Texans’ Offensive Coordinator (Tim Kelly) was holding him back.

With Taylor in the lineup, the whole playbook is open. To stay in this game, the Texans need to dink and dunk the Dolphins defense. Don’t force any more throws like the interception above. The good performance from Phillip Lindsay must also continue his great start as well.

Houston doesn’t have many winnable games left, and this is one of them. Tyrod Taylor must step up and lead this team to a much-needed victory. Detroit will most likely own the first-overall pick come April.
