News: Mallet completed 20-of-30 passes for 211 yards, with two touchdowns and one interception in his first NFL start Sunday against the Browns. Impact: Mallet connected with six different receivers, throwing his first-career touchdowns to defensive end J.J. Watt on a two-yard pass play. Mallet looked comfortable in the pocket and was able to avoid getting sacked in his first appearance, after replacing Ryan Fitzpatrick under center. Up next is a Week 12 matchup against the Bengals, who are allowing 248.9 passing yards per game this season, which ranks 20th in the league.(RotoWire, )

News: Mallett will be the quarterback for the Houston Texans when they play the Cleveland Browns on Nov. 16. Coach Bill O'Brien made the announcement Wednesday as the Texans prepare to take time off during their bye week. Impact: Veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick started the first nine games for the Texans, but struggled to move the offense as the team fell to 4-5. Mallett joined the Texans after three seasons backing up Tom Brady in New England. He didn't take a single snap in two of his three seasons with the Patriots. He appeared in four games in 2012, but completed just one of four passes for 17 yards with an interception.(STATS, 11:42am)
