AFC Wildcard Buffalo Bills at Jacksonville Jaguars: Preview and Prediction

AFC Wildcard Buffalo Bills at Jacksonville Jaguars: Preview and Prediction

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.

Ramsey held up and Benjamin was called for offensive pass interference. "So I wanted to make sure that whatever happened today, if we were going to get beat or if something bad were to happen, it was going to be with us going down swinging and using every option and everything we could".

As a passer, Bortles finished Sunday's matchup 12-of-23 for 87 yards and a touchdown, which was only good for an average of 3.78 yards per pass.

To quote Verne Lundquist, in your LIFE have you ever seen anything like that? Perhaps that's why in the second half he chose to scramble so often - eight times for 53 yards.

"If you're going to do me like that, that's insane". We earned this. Theres no mistaking.

Marcell Dareus had some extra motivation to play in his first career playoff game.

Thereafter, the Bills offence never advanced farther than Jacksonville's 38. Jacksonville players standing on the sideline pointed to Clay's feet, and coach Doug Marrone threw the challenge flag. But in the playoffs, he went there and made some big-time plays picking up first downs time and time again. Fournette will most likely need to break the 100 yard barrier in order to win this contest because it will keep the ball out of the turnover prone hands of Bortles.

"Really at the end of the day it was just a hard-fought game and that's what playoff football is, and we were able to get the win at home, which was big", said Marrone, who elaborated upon that point later in the press conference.

2,262 rushing yards in 16 games (141.4 YPG) in 16 games in '17; 1,631 rushing yards (101.9 YPG) in '16.

Jacksonville's latest defensive gem - a 10-3 victory against Buffalo (9-8) on Sunday - set up a rematch with the Steelers (13-3).

Buffalo's last drive ended when cornerback Jalen Ramsey intercepted a pass from Nathan Peterman, who was in after starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor was knocked out of the game with a concussion a few plays prior, with 26 seconds remaining to seal the win for Jacksonville. To put that in context, only two other coaches since 1933 have lost one 18-point half-time lead.

Significantly, it was Buffalo's fourth loss this season in which Taylor failed to pass for as many as 45 yards in the second half, after Cincinnati (39), New Orleans (eight) and the first New England game (17).

The game boiled down to two 4th-and-short situations close to the goal line, one for each team.

As for now, Taylor has entered concussion protocol.

"I thought he handled himself just like the rest of our football team", McDermott said, "with class and with a lot of pride".

The Buffalo Bills were ultimately disappointed in their return to the playoffs, falling 10-3 to the Jaguars in a wild-card game that was Buffalo's first postseason appearance since 1999.

Thankfully, Hackett opened up the playbook from the Arizona Cardinals game - he gave Bortles more freedom with his legs and the Jacksonville offense finally found success.

The second postseason meeting between teams (Jaguars, 1-0), Jaguars posting 30-27 win in the '96 AFC Wild Card Playoffs at Orchard Park, New York.
