Jacksonville's defence shuts down Buffalo to reach Divisional playoff game

The Bills' Cinderella story continues into the playoffs with an AFC wild-card matchup with the Jaguars in Jacksonville.

Josh Reed co-host of the Buffalo Bills Kickoff Live television broadcast, which airs on WFXV FOX 33, questioned whether this game would actually feel like the first playoff home game since 1999 for Jacksonville, because there are so many Buffalo fans in the stadium.

McCoy said he wanted to be able to cut without pain in the game.

Quarterback Tyrod Taylor completed 17 of 37 attempts for only 129 yards with an interception before being knocked out with 1:17 remaining after a scramble. Without McCoy, the run-first Bills would be forced to turn to Mike Tolbert, shifting a ton of the pressure onto the arm (and legs) of quarterback Tyrod Taylor and creating a much more hard set of circumstances.


The two teams, which combined for less than 500 yards total offense in the game, traded field goals late in the second quarter and went into the locker room at the half tied 3-3.

Bortles also provided an unexpected boost in the running game, picking up a career-high 88 yards on 10 carries and extending multiple drives with his legs.

The Jaguars' recorded seven first downs on the 86-yard drive, which ended with a 1-yard touchdown pass from Bortles to Ben Koyack with less than a minute left in the quarter.

It's not a Bills game unless tables are being broken.
