Jaguars defense shines in wild-card win over Bills

At long last, the National Football League playoffs are upon us.

Fans waited in the cold to be there when the team's plane landed at the Buffalo-Niagara International Airport. These teams are the Buffalo Bills and the Jacksonville Jaguars. They're excited because they say if they can make it to the playoffs this season, there's no telling what can happen next year.

Season grade: Above average.

Very few offenses moved the ball against the Jaguars this season, and the Bills weren't a good candidate to put up many points on them.

At times Sunday, Taylor was the victim of poor playcalling by offensive coordinator Rick Dennison and dropped passes by Thomas and other Bills receivers, but the simple fact is he could not get the Bills into the end zone when one touchdown could have changed the outcome of the game. Head coach Sean McDermott doesn't reveal much about internal matters, but he has to know that the offense under-performed, in part, because of poor coaching.

Buffalo had first-and-goal at the Jaguars 1 with 2:53 remaining.

"I feel like we shouldn't have given up any [points]", Jaguars cornerback Aaron Colvin, who picked off Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor in the first half. The Jacksonville Jaguars are where they are due to their defense. This season, Jacksonville's defense was, arguably, the best defense in all of football this season.

55 sacks in 16 games in '17 (33 sacks in '16).

Despite the Jacksonville Jaguars' win over the Buffalo Bills being a low-scoring affair, the game was without a doubt a rollercoaster ride that could've gone either way. In a defensive game, both offenses' struggled without question but the Jaguars were the only ones' to score a touchdown late in third quarter. However, he also threw 13 interceptions.


"I don't care what people call it, we got a playoff win", Ramsey said. Rookie running back Leonard Fournette had been stopped at the 1 on two straight runs, and the Jaguars went for it rather than take a short field goal.

Losing Allen Robinson for the season during Week 1 was a tremendous blow. His 88 yards rushing were the most by a Jaguars player in almost a month.

The Panthers had a first down on the Saints 26-yard line with 58 seconds left, but heavy pressure by All-Pro defensive end Cameron Jordan a couple plays later induced an intentional grounding penalty on Carolina quarterback Cam Newton, making it third-and-25 on the Saints 34 and a required 10-second runoff.

As for my prediction, I have to side with Jacksonville. The Bills had a minus-57 point differential, the NFL's 29th-ranked offense and 25th-ranked defense entering the final weekend.

"I think this Bills team is more resilient".

Lot X outside of EverBank Field in Jacksonville sure seemed like it was home sweet home for Bills fans on Sunday.
