Losing running back Christian McCaffrey to injury last season helped sink the Panthers’ season, but it didn’t sink them on Thursday night against the Texans.

He immediately pointed [more]

Davis Mills looked exactly what he is on the Texans’ first four drives. The rookie quarterback, who is making his first start, had only 19 yards passing with 1:37 remaining in the half. The Texans had only 17 plays, three first downs and four punts. So no one saw this coming. . . . Mills [more]
