Jags defeat Bills in defensive battle

08 January 2018

The third-seeded Jaguars (10-6) won the AFC South and earned their first home playoff game since January 2008. The defensive units for the Jaguars and Bills proved equally effective in limiting scoring opportunities.

Bortles' legs once again proved to be the difference in the second half, as the QB ran for 36 yards and capped off a 15-play 86-yard drive with a TD to tight end Ben Koyack to give the Jags a 10-3 lead.

And to think, all of this came after the Jaguars said the Bills didn't use all of the tickets they were allotted for the game. It's the third time they've met this season. Their victory means they will head to Heinz Field to face the Steelers next week in the AFC divisional playoffs.

Thousands of Buffalo Bills fans have escaped sub-zero temperatures and invaded Jacksonville this weekend expecting to make the most out of the first playoff appearance in 17 years. 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.

-Jacksonville got their first points just before the half expired as Josh Lambo was true from 44 yards out for a field goal to tie the score (3-3) with two seconds left in the half. His 2-and-20 pass with 26 seconds left was intercepted by Jalen Ramsey to seal the game with under a minute left.
