The Houston Texans were at a crossroads coming out of halftime against the Cleveland Browns in Week 2 at FirstEnergy Stadium.

Houston was tied 14-14 against Cleveland, but coming out of the tunnel at halftime to lead the offense was rookie quarterback Davis Mills. Starter Tyrod Taylor sustained a hamstring injury and was done for the day.

For linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill, there was no added pressure on the defense to win the game. In fact, the defense feels the same amount of pressure to win the game regardless of who is under center for Houston.

“In our mind, the defense has to win the game every time,” Grugier-Hill said. “That’s our approach. It doesn’t really matter who is in at quarterback. Honestly I was proud of Davis, the way he came in and did his thing.”

Where Grugier-Hill sees the Texans as being ineffective against the Browns was in their run defense.
