HOUSTON (AP) — The Houston Texans have benched Tyrod Taylor in favor of rookie Davis Mills and coach David Culley said Mills will start for the rest of the season.

Culley benched quarterback Taylor for Mills in the third quarter of last week’s loss with the Texans (2-10) trailing 21-0.

Culley evaluated the position this week before announcing his decision Friday. “He gives us the best chance to win,” Culley said of Mills.

Mills, a third-round pick from Stanford, threw eight interceptions with seven touchdowns in 6½ games filling in when Taylor was injured. Taylor has five interceptions with just two TD passes in the four games since returning from a strained hamstring.

Houston hosts Seattle on Sunday.
