QB Carr runs out of gas

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Terrorized by the defence of the Buffalo Bills, Houston Texans quarterback David Carr was everything the home team doesn't want J.P. Losman to be.

Skittish from the start, the former first overall pick was humiliated in front of a full house at Ralph Wilson Stadium in yesterday's 22-7 Bills' win.

"This is as helpless as I've felt playing quarterback since I've been in third grade," said Carr, who was the Texans' first selection in 2002. "It was embarrassing for our team, our fans and our family.

"That was hopeless."

Hapless, too.

Carr was picked off three times and added a fourth turnover via a fumble. To complete the beating, he was sacked five times for losses of 45 yards.

The Bills forced five turnovers in total, giving every indication that the league's second-ranked defence from a year ago is back in business.

The one-two safety combination of Lawyer Milloy and Troy Vincent is particularly lethal.

"We don't worry about where we finished off last year as a defence because we didn't make the playoffs," said Milloy, who had one interception to Vincent's two.

Rolling up 315 net yards to the Texans' 120, the Bills held the ball for 38 minutes and 15 seconds.

"Our goal as a defence is to go out there and dominate," Bills cornerback Nate Clements said. "I think we did that."
