1. The best is yet to come from the Houston QB
The Texans are in a rebuild process and even though on paper they had a very solid draft, there is still much work ahead for Mills and the rest of the team.
One positive aspect that stands out from Mills last season is in his final five starts he completed no less than 63-percent of his passes in a given game, including 77.78 percent of his passes against the Los Angeles Chargers. That was a game in Week 16 where Mills was 21-of-27 for 254 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions.
Against the Seattle Seahawks, Mills had his most passing yards in a game, as the Week 14 contest saw him go 33-of-49 (67-percent completion) for 331 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions.
If Mills stays as accurate as he was in ’21 and keeps away from four-interception games like his did in the latter half of his rookie season it will be exciting to watch his progression from year one to year two.
There is also the fact the as mentioned before the offensive line will be better, the rushing game will be better, and Mills has in-game experience to show he’s not the worst quarterback in the AFC like some have said this offseason in various rankings on social media.
Mills will prove many wrong this ’22 season, and though the Texans are still not at the top of the game, don’t be surprised to see Mills lead Houston to a better record, and have better overall play by him and the rest of the offense.
The Houston QB is a better quarterback than he’s been perceived to be this offseason, and he’ll show the rest of the NFL in 2022.
