Poor Davis Mills. The Houston Texans' rookie backup turned starter is having a miserable afternoon against the Bills in Buffalo.

Mills played pretty well, all things considered, in his first career start against the Carolina Panthers in Week 3. He has not done so through two quarters today.

At halftime, Mills is just 1-for-7 passing for three yards and two interceptions. He's also been sacked three times for 26 lost yards.

Not surprisingly, the Texans haven't scored a point yet today. They trail Buffalo 16-0 as the third quarter gets underway at Highmark Stadium.

In the meantime, Mills is taking a beating on social media.

In all fairness to him, no one expected Mills to be in this spot. He was a third-round pick back in April, and was projected to be third-string behind Deshaun Watson and Tyrod Taylor.

Of course, Watson is not playing due to his ongoing sexual misconduct lawsuits and Taylor is injured, forcing Mills into the starting lineup.

Today, the Stanford product is seeing just how tough the NFL can be for a rookie quarterback.
