Tyrod Taylor went 4 of 4 for 40 yards in his lone series and rookie quarterback Davis Mills led a couple of scoring drives for the Houston Texans in a 26-7 preseason victory over the Packers.

Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers and Houston’s Deshaun Watson didn't play as the spotlight shifted to the other quarterbacks on each team. 

Taylor led a 53-yard drive that resulted in one of Ka’imi Fairbairn’s four field goals. Green Bay’s Jordan Love went 12 of 17 for 122 yards with a touchdown pass and a fumble in his pro debut.
