Allen had five turnovers (four interceptions and one lost fumble) in those games and accounted for two scores against the Texans in the defeat to Cleveland as a tipped pass was intercepted and returned for a touchdown and his lost fumble on a quarterback sneak was returned for a score, the story pointed out. Mills has 11 TD and 11 interceptions this season. It's safe to say, currently holding the top pick in the next NFL Draft, the Texans will likely address the QB position.
Reports said OC Pep Hamilton declined the change happened but others say it will be Allen under center in Week 12. Mills hasn't been good this year and it seems safe to assume the Texans will spend their high first round pick on a QB in this rich quarterback class in 2023.
During his Monday press conference, Texans’ HC Lovie Smith left the door open to a QB change this week, going away from Davis Mills to Kyle Allen. “We're not pleased with where we are,” Smith said. “Do we need to do some things differently? Yes, and we will.”
Saying that the Texans' offensive performance on Sunday was a hard watch would be an understatement. Mills was sacked five times and threw two interceptions, and running back Dameon Pierce ran the ball ten times for 0.8 yards per carry. If the quarterback change were to occur, Kyle Allen would inherit a terrible offensive line and a group of pass-catchers who have reiterated that they don't want to play for this team.
