Houston Texans fans took a trip down memory lane for one play, and it was met with mixed reactions.
Well, not before undergoing the psychological horror of watching your fantastic rookie quarterback seemingly knocked out of the game. C.J. Stroud exited the game with the Arizona Cardinals following a sack with 13:04 to go in the third quarter Sunday at NRG Stadium. Replacing Stroud was backup Davis Mills, whose 5-19-1 record over the past two seasons is what helped Stroud come to Houston in the first place.
Texans fans had feelings of fear seeing Mills drop back for old times sake and also relief of seeing Stroud return to the game. Here are some of the best reactions.

Watch Davis mills ruin the game all in one play

When I saw Davis Mills come in the game I got bad chills I think starting next game we need to make Case Keenum the back up quarterback. We are fighting for the division and for the playoffs-we need a halfway competent quarterback
