Game that was: "Going out there to win"


"We'll put the team on our backs". During the regular season the Jaguars only allowed 170 yards through the air per game, Buffalo managed 148 (if you throw in what Peterman did after Taylor was injured). They lined up in the same formation, just flipped on my side so I figured they were running the same route. Taylor was his typically inconsistent self as a passer, and he got nearly no help from his teammates as gimpy-ankled LeSean McCoy was the only threat the Bills had. Gifted a first and goal from the 1, the Bills opted to throw, and former FSU receiver Kelvin Benjamin was flagged for offensive pass interference; Buffalo ended up settling for a field goal and a 3-0 lead. But McCoy had gotten the Bills down inside the 4-yard line, earning 41 of the Bills' 68 yards on that drive to that point.

Taylor almost ran for a 2-yard score prior to Hauschka's field goal but was tripped from behind by defensive end Calais Campbell.

Bills: making 18th overall playoff appearance (14th since the merger), 14-15 in postseason play (12-13 since the merger).

Jacksonville's success is primarily due its stout defense.

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. He gave up on plays too quickly throughout the afternoon, and the Bills' offense struggled to get anything going as a result.

California Hospital Seeing 'Record Season' For Flu Patients, Doctor Says
Although flu season can start as early as October, this year, as usual, it's shifted into high gear in late December and January. Despite what has been reported about the flu vaccine's effectiveness, the CDC says it believes the "U.S.

For the Bills, they had the game plan to stop Jacksonville - stuff the run and force Blake Bortles to throw - until the quarterback began using his feet to beat them on the ground and, again, they failed to adapt.

The Jaguars will now head to Pittsburgh next Sunday to face a Steelers team they've already beaten, sending the Tennessee TItans to New England for a divisional-round game against the Patriots on Saturday night. A big factor that hurt the Bills defense was Blake Bortles running for 88 yards that included two big runs to keep the ball away from Tyrod Taylor and his offense. But he was awful thereafter, completing 6-of-16 for 44 yards until getting knocked out (perhaps literally, briefly) on a wicked but legal hit with 1:17 left. He finished with 119 yards from scrimmage - 75 rushing and 44 receiving - 25 gutsy touches. "No one is trying to win a beauty contest". As a rookie, he returned a fumble 41 yards for a touchdown against the Indianapolis Colts in just his second game. To me, and I know it sounds cliché, it's not like its one area.

Carolina will face New Orleans later on Sunday with the victor to visit Minnesota next Sunday in a second-round National Conference playoff game.
