Jaguars' defense shuts down Bills in AFC wild-card game


That said, hopefully offensive coordinator Nate Hackett will incorporate more rushing plays for Bortles in the team's game plan heading forward.

Bortles' performance could turn teetotalers into souses.

Above all, most fans were thankful that the team gave them such a fun season.

One's team beats the other 10-3, in a hellish game to watch. Taylor was sacked twice and knocked out of the game after a tackle by Dante Fowler with 1:43 remaining in the game.

The respect Taylor has earned among his teammates in three seasons with the Bills was evident when about a dozen players took a knee as he received on-field medical treatment. Brown and Gaines are more likely to have another chance in Buffalo. "Jacksonville has played the Bills down here, and I've been to all the games, and this is unprecedented".

As for the Bortles, Jaguars brass ultimately faces a tougher decision on what is an even costlier enigma under center.

Run the ball. Avoid costly mistakes and turnovers.

But in this case, look beyond the stats.

The upside was this: The Bills made the playoffs, ending their embarrassing 17-year drought, so there's no way anyone can say 2017 was a disappointing season, especially those who thought back in August the franchise was tanking.

Start with scrambling - an area where Taylor was expected to have a significant edge.

Jacksonville took advantage of five interceptions from Roethlisberger, which set a career-high for the signal-caller.

Russian Federation has repeatedly denied that it interfered in the election, and Trump said he believed Putin. In his report, Cardin notes the threat is unrelated to the president's victory but is his responsibility now.

In all, Buffalo ran 18 plays on the drive, which lasted 8:06.

Lot X outside of EverBank Field in Jacksonville sure seemed like it was home sweet home for Bills fans on Sunday. "You don't have a fastball". With the Bills selling out to stop the run, Fournette managed just 57 yards on 21 carries. "It was incredible", Bortles said.

"That's usually not ideal for a quarterback", Bortles said. "I was very impressed". But Jacksonville pressured him into an intentional grounding penalty, then Ramseys interception to clinch a long-awaited win. He threw for 87 yards and 1 touchdown, completing 12 of 23 passes.

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Ben Koyack spikes the ball after scoring a touchdown on a 1-yard pass play against the Buffalo Bills Sunday in Jacksonville, Fla. "Of course, playing against them made it bittersweet, but we won and I'm glad I'm on the winning side". "We hadn't turned the ball over".

That was all the Jaguars needed thanks to their defensive mismatch against the Bills.

"We've done it before so we know we can do it", Campbell said.

"I think we should hold every team to zero because that's just the kind of defense we are", Colvin said.

Prior to Sunday, the Jaguars' last playoff win was a 31-29 victory at Pittsburgh on January 5, 2008, and their last home playoff win was a 62-7 demolishing of Miami on January 15, 2000. The same goes for Bortles and his aerial production.

It was a good season for the Buffalo Bills. "We earned this and were going to continue to grind".

"I want a running play". Those don't seem like heavy burdens to overcome for a team advancing to the divisional round of the playoffs, but outside of the defense, Jacksonville has struggled to appear playoff ready. "For him to find a way and do it with his legs, I have the utmost respect for him". "The game definitely rises".
