HOUSTON (AP) -- David Carr's record day was spoiled by a late game collapse.
Lee Evans becomes just the third player in NFL history with two TD receptions of at least 80 yards in the same game. Evans is the only player to accomplish the feat in a single quarter.

|Scouts Inc.'s take ...|
Houston ran the ball for 188 yards and QB David Carr was 25-of-30 passing, but it still wasn't enough to beat the Buffalo Bills. With almost a five-minute time of possession advantage and a 46 percent third-down success rate (as opposed to a 29 percent for the Bills), the Texans should have won the game.
But giving up two 83-yard touchdown strikes from J.P. Losman (above) to Lee Evans was just too much for the Texans to overcome. With their secondary giving up a long touchdown pass in almost every game recently, the Bills should have been ripe for the picking, but the Texans were unable to take advantage.
Evans has 55 receptions this season to set a career high for receptions in a season. He had 48 in both of his first two seasons. ... Moulds, who spent 10 years with Buffalo before being traded to the Texans, had five catches for 68 yards for Houston.
