A late touchdown pass in the 3rd quarter allowed for Bortles and company to take a 10-3 lead heading into the 4th quarter.
McCoy, who was listed as questionable after spraining his ankle in last week's victory at Miami, ended up having 75 yards on 19 carries in what he said was a solid game.
Buffalo had more success (148 yards), but failed to cash in on a first-and-goal opportunity at the Jaguars' 1-yard line. "I worked hard out there (Sunday) and so did the whole team to make sure we got that win".
ELECTRIC ATMOSPHERE: The Jaguars enjoyed a rare packed house for the franchise's first home playoff game in 18 years, and thousands of Bills fans tailgated outside EverBank Field and crowded into nearby bars. Everyone was expecting some asinine interception, but Bortles instead had his best rushing game of his career en route to leading the Jaguars to the AFC Divisional Round.
When LeSean McCoy is healthy he is one of the NFL's most dynamic running backs. Jacksonville players standing on the sideline pointed to Clay's feet, and coach Doug Marrone threw the challenge flag.
"I'm surprised at how well they are stacking up against this Jacksonville team", Johnson said.
Rookie Nathan Peterman, who hadnt played in four weeks, came in and converted on fourth down with a scramble, then threw a 14-yard pass to the Jaguars 38. Quarterback Tyrod Taylor was injured on a run after being tackled by Jaguars defensive end Dante Fowler Jr. At age 34, Williams may have played his last game as a Bill, much like Taylor. The Bills' inability to move the ball against the Jaguars was a major reason why they lost. The teams punted a total of 17 times in a field-position stalemate, each starting five drives inside its 20-yard line. "We have to do a good job there, but we have to do a good job for 60 minutes and in all areas if we want to minimize the way they run the ball and the ways they possess the ball and control the game and are in manageable third downs because of it".
It got to the point in the second half that once the Jaguars scored their lone TD late in the third quarter, whenever the Bills had the ball on offense you never got the feeling they could score a touchdown. But at the same time, they're to get our best shot, too. With one playoff victory behind us, here are our five biggest takeaways from the Bills-Jags' wild-card thriller.
"We get to play again".
"The atmosphere was incredible", Colvin said. Whatever it takes, we've got to get to these goals we talked about. In what should prove to be his final game in a Bills uniform, Taylor and the Buffalo offense came up short in a 10-3 loss to Jacksonville.
The Jaguars advanced to face the second-seeded Steelers on January 14 in Pittsburgh. Guard Richie Incognito left the game with a shoulder injury and is questionable to return. Receiver/punt returner Jaydon Mickens (hamstring) also left the game. Jacksonville came away with a 30-9 victory on October 8, as the defense kept Pittsburgh out of the end zone while coming away with five interceptions of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
