Blake Bortles' bizarre game leads Jaguars to playoff win over Bills

Blake Bortles' bizarre game leads Jaguars to playoff win over Bills

After an exchange of third-quarter punts, Jacksonville put together it's only big drive of the day, the one that won the game.

Bills running back LeSean McCoy gutted out an ankle injury sustained in the regular-season finale win over the Miami Dolphins.

There's a swimming pool located above the end-zone stands at EverBank Field where fans can soak and bask while watching the Jaguars home games. There was even a picture of OJ Simpson wearing a McCoy jersey as he watched the game at a Las Vegas bar.

Marrone used an option in his contract to opt out after the Bills changed ownership after the 2014 season.

"We're battle-tested, so we know that if we just keep playing ball, good things will happen". "KB" pushed off and justifiably got the rare offensive pass interference call. He walked away with $4 million, missed out on getting another head-coaching job and was hired as the Jaguars' offensive line coach in 2015. He stayed down on the field after a gain of two yards as Bills' players surrounded him and trainers examined him.

"I came off the ball". "You try to move on from it".

Fueled by a miracle berth into the National Football League playoffs, a herd of Buffalo Bills fans charged into Jacksonville Jaguars territory to do what they do best: threaten their well-being with drunken stunts, typically involving one or more folding tables. For the most part, Wash called a brilliant game plan as the Jags resembled the ferocious defense he helped build in Seattle some years ago.

Ramsey said he saw the play coming. Quarterback Blake Bortles faked the handoff and found backup tight end Ben Koyack in the back of the end zone. That came when Nathan Peterman came in after Taylor was injured with 1:27 remaining when his head hit the turf after being tackled by Dante Fowler. Bortles is the first QB since Steve McNair in 1999 to throw for fewer than 100 pass yards and win a playoff game with a minimum of 20 pass attempts, per NFL Research. This season, Taylor had 18 total touchdowns and only four interceptions along with over 2,700 passing yards.

"We had a long field on most of our drives".

"Usually in situations like that when we're up in the two-minute with the corners, we play 10 yards off and not more", Ramsey said.

The Jaguars, who had lost at least 11 games in each of the previous six seasons before this years turnaround, tied it just before halftime and were still clinging to that 10-3 lead as the Bills got across midfield three times in the fourth quarter. He also rushed for 88 yards on 10 carries.

"I think this Bills team is more resilient. We just didn't play well".

As the Saints attempted to preserve their five-point lead late in the game, Drew Brees threw a pick on fourth and two, giving the Panthers a final chance to progress.

Buffalo - who suffered the longest barren spell without post-season action across all four major sports in the United States before this season - had not featured in the play-offs since losing 22-16 at this stage in 1999, and had not reached the Divisional Round since 1995. They travel so far and rally behind us. "Two plays before that, with Peterman we played the same coverage, we played off and he threw that quick hitch to A.J.'s side".
