Week 3 vs Panthers
The rookie will make his first NFL start Thursday in place of the injured Tyrod Taylor. While no one is expecting this to be a repeat of last year with Justin Herbert replacing Taylor, Mills was ok in his spot work against the Browns. The downside is he's on a short week and he's facing a Panthers defense that has played extremely well through the first two weeks of the season. Mills is a desperation play in Week 3 but at least worth watching how he fares in his first NFL start.
