Tyrod Taylor threw a 40-yard touchdown pass to Charles Clay with 1:53 left to lead the Buffalo Bills to a 30-21 win over the Houston Texans on Sunday.

Taylor finished 11 of 21 for 211 yards and three TDs and also scored on an 8-yard run. Buffalo (6-6) snapped a two-game skid and gained ground on the Texans (6-6) in the AFC playoff race. Sammy Watkins had three catches for 109 yards and a touchdown.

The Texans had a four-game winning streak snapped.

Houston's Brian Hoyer finished 26 of 44 for 293 yards with three touchdowns but was unable to deliver in the clutch. Hoyer threw four consecutive incompletions on the Texans' drive after Clay's touchdown.

The Bills took over and Dan Carpenter secured the win with a 36-yard field goal with 33 seconds remaining.  Carpenter otherwise struggled, missing a 50-yard field goal attempt and an extra point.
