The Houston Texans said they were going to open up the offense for rookie quarterback Davis Mills, and they finally did so against the New England Patriots.

The third-round quarterback from Stanford threw a 67-yard touchdown pass to receiver Chris Moore, who the Texans elevated as one of their standard elevations from the practice squad.

The touchdown boosted the Texans as they took a 12-6 lead over the Patriots early in the second quarter. Kicker Ka’imi Fairbairn missed his second extra point to lock the score at 12-6.

Mills has now thrown four touchdown passes since relieving Tyrod Taylor at halftime of Week 2 at the Cleveland Browns.
