Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Ben Koyack spikes the ball after scoring a touchdown on a 1-yard pass play against the Buffalo Bills Sunday in Jacksonville, Fla. He gave up on plays too quickly throughout the afternoon, and the Bills' offense struggled to get anything going as a result.

Prior to Sunday, the Jaguars' last playoff win was a 31-29 victory at Pittsburgh on January 5, 2008, and their last home playoff win was a 62-7 demolishing of Miami on January 15, 2000. But #BillsMafia never disappoints, and they were loud in Jacksonville despite it being an away game all the way down the coast.

The Jaguars' Blake Bortles was off most of the day, misfiring short and long, but made up for it with 88 yards rushing.

Sunday looked nothing like either of those games. All but one of their drives ended in punts.

If the Jaguars are going to get past the Steelers next week at Heinz Field, that defense is going to have to do it again in the divisional round.

Thankfully, Bortles put the offense on his legs and the Jaguars manufactured the bare minimum on offense en route to a 10-3 win.

Brees, who completed 23 of 32 passes, threw first-half touchdown passes of 80 yards to Ted Ginn Jr. and 9 yards to Josh Hill. The offense was pushed back and could not reach the end zone. "I'm trying to do whatever I can to help this team win, help this team score points". "And if we can give them a victory on the field, it will make for a flawless day". This caused Peterman to step in and lead a possible comeback.

Special Teams Coordinator Chris Tabor Leaving Browns For Bears
The Browns also snapped up at least one Special Teams Player of the Week award in the AFC every season from 2011 through 2016. Or he could have reunited with Chip Kelly, for whom he was offensive coordinator at OR , and run the offense at UCLA.

The decision backfired after Peterman threw five first-half interceptions in a 54-24 loss at the Los Angeles Chargers, leaving McDermott little choice but to return to Taylor. "We just didn't play well". Jacksonville's NFL-best pass defense also secured a pair of interceptions, including an athletic grab by Jalen Ramsey that put the game to bed. Peterman's 14-yard completion late was the fourth-longest play from scrimmage all day for the Bills, who netted only 263 yards of offense.

Tyrod Taylor's limitations as a quarterback became apparent during this game. "I feel like I'm in Buffalo, New York".

The loss leaves Buffalo picking 21st and 22nd overall in the 2018 NFL Draft which the Bills must now prepare for. But fortunately for them, LeSean McCoy is active. Upcoming free agents Preston Brown, E.J. Gaines, and Kyle Williams may get resigned, or may not. That ended Buffalo's last-gasp chance and sent the Jaguars on to Pittsburgh. The question is: How much is it going to matter?

This defense was not looking sharp heading into the season, but they have helped the team win in crucial situations. "We've got to hold teams to zero".

The upside was this: The Bills made the playoffs, ending their embarrassing 17-year drought, so there's no way anyone can say 2017 was a disappointing season, especially those who thought back in August the franchise was tanking. Cornerback Tre'Davious White went to the locker room in the fourth to be treated for cramps. The Bills have a lot of work to do in the offseason, but they show promise with their young talent and the draft picks they hold for this years' National Football League draft. With one playoff victory behind us, here are our five biggest takeaways from the Bills-Jags' wild-card thriller.
