The Houston Texans lost what seemed like a winnable game against the New York Jets on Sunday. Quarterback Tyrod Taylor failed to give the offense much life, throwing for just 158 yards and an interception while taking 5 sacks for 52 yards.

Taylor's struggles have prompted questions about the Texans' QB plans going forward, which head coach David Culley responded to on Monday.

Culley said that Taylor is the Texans' starter as long as he's healthy. Rookie Davis Mills, who started six games in place of Taylor while the latter was injured, would only see the field if Taylor goes down again.

This may be disappointing news for some. Taylor has failed to impress, throwing for 921 yards, 5 TDs and 4 INTs in 4.5 starts so far. Mills hasn't fared much better -- 1,255 yards/6 TDs/7 INTs in his six starts -- but fans are eager to get the inexperienced QB some reps to further his development.

Houston's two wins this season have come with Taylor under center, and it looks like they'll continue with him barring anything major. The veteran will look to bounce back in Week 13 against the Indianapolis Colts.
