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

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

The Jacksonville Jaguars beat the Buffalo Bills 10-3 on Sunday to win their first playoff game in a decade.

Despite the local roots, Tedeschi, of Tedeschi Trucks Band, is a Jaguars fan, aligning with her husband, Derek Trucks, who hails from Jacksonville.

The Jaguars were a clear favorite in this game, but the Bills defense performed very well.

Bortles, who said after the game that the wind was making it tough to have success in the passing game, rushed for a game-high 88 yards on 10 carries.

Buffalo's offense was putrid in the second half.

The Jaguars have sold out the game and even removed tarps that previously covered four sections of seats to make an additional 3,501 extra tickets available, per DiRocco. Nathan Peterman replaced Taylor on fourth-and-3 and completed a 14-yard pass to Deonte Thompson. The Bills could bring Taylor back as they groom a future starter. "This is a home game for the Buffalo Bills, and it's well overdue".

Vic Carucci's Points After: One & done. This caused Peterman to step in and lead a possible comeback. Dennison's primary goal should have been running out the clock, but instead the Bills gifted the Jaguars a field goal. Although Taylor led the Bills to the playoffs this season, he wasn't much of a factor on the field Sunday and that will further fuel the fire to replace him.

Bortles was an underwhelming 6-of-15 passing for 33 yards and needed receiver Dede Westbrook to break up a pass to avoid throwing an interception. However, he was intercepted by Ramsey in the final minute to end the game. He gave up on plays too quickly throughout the afternoon, and the Bills' offense struggled to get anything going as a result.




The Bills defense definitely needs improvement overall. "They executed their game plan really well". Upcoming free agents Preston Brown, E.J. Gaines, and Kyle Williams may get resigned, or may not. But that was not the right strategy in the Bills game.

The Bills enter the offseason with questions at quarterback and on offense after they had one of the worst years offensive teams in the past five years.

Scored 417 points in 16 games in '17 (318 points in '16).

Marrone used an option in his contract to opt out after the Bills changed ownership after the 2014 season. Their two biggest acquisitions were Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde no doubt.

One can argue that Tre'Davious White and Colt Anderson not dropping interceptions could have changed the game.

"Minimizing their run is more than focusing on Leonard", Tomlin said at his weekly news conference.

The sixth-seeded Bills (9-8) will head home after ending the longest, current playoff drought in North American professional sports. The Bills have a lot of work to do in the offseason, but they show promise with their young talent and the draft picks they hold for this years' National Football League draft.

If you were watching the NFL's wild card weekend, you may have noticed an unfamiliar team in playoffs. Maybe Bortles having a Forrest Gump moment and discovering he can run is the type of anomaly that breaks the playoff algorithm.
