Mixed performance Sunday
Mills completed 26 of 35 passes for 246 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's 34-24 loss to the Chargers.
Mills saw his team go down 21 points early on, but he helped it rally to close the gap in the second half. The signal-caller threw an eight-yard touchdown to Rex Burkhead in the third quarter, before finding wideout Brandin Cooks for an 18-yard score to begin the fourth. However, with a pair of interceptions on the day, including a badly overthrown pass on Houston's first drive, it was hardly a clean performance from Mills. In fact, he's now thrown a pair of picks in back-to-back games ahead of Week 5's matchup versus the Jaguars.
