Jaguars' Marcell Dareus wanted 'badly' to beat Bills

Jaguars' Marcell Dareus wanted 'badly' to beat Bills

"That's usually not ideal for a quarterback", Bortles said when asked if he envisioned himself having more rushing yards than passing yards in a playoff game.

Yesterday's AFC Wild Card game between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Buffalo Bills was a snooze, but it was relevant to us in New England for two reasons: One, it would determine who would travel to Gillette next weekend to play the Patriots (turns out it's the Tennessee Titans), and two, Boston native and Berklee alum Susan Tedeschi sang "The Star-Spangled Banner" before the game at EverBank Field. The victor of that game will play either New England or Tennessee in the AFC Championship Game.

One team beats the other 10-3, in a hellish game to watch.

The Bills finished with 263 yards, with 119 of those coming from hobbled running back LeSean McCoy (ankle). His TD pass to backup tight end Ben Koyack late in the third quarter was his best throw of the game. Bortles broke a few runs on scrambles, but the designed option plays really paved the way for the Jaguars only touchdown drive.

The Jaguars' defense made the only touchdown of the day stand up.

On the last drive, the Bills were driving then Taylor got rocked by Dante Fowler Jr. and slammed his head on the field, taking him out of the game.

The Jaguars are back in the National Football League playoffs for the first time since 2007, and Colvin helped end one of the Buffalo Bills' second quarter drives with a diving interception on a tipped pass.

Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey continued his brilliant second season into the playoffs.

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. He will certainly not look back on his first playoff game with fond memories!

An underwhelming first half by both teams produced the first 3-3 halftime score in a playoff game since the 1988 season.

The Jaguars' only touchdown drive of the game lasted eight minutes, 52 seconds, their longest possession of the year.

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. "We'll put the team on our backs". "He is a hell of a player, but we didn't run it". Zay Jones dropped a pass, and a flawless throw from Taylor bounced off the chest of Logan Thomas and into the hands of a Jacksonville defender. For the second time this season, Bortles has willed the Jaguars' offense down the field with his mobility. Nothing is official on Taylor leaving Buffalo, but this loss could seal his fate and he may be playing for another team next season. He had five catches for 48 yards.

To his credit, he combined with Deonte Thompson for 14 yards on the following play, entering Jags territory and keeping Buffalo's slim hopes alive. Buffalo settled for a 31-yard field goal by kicker Stephen Hauschka to take a 3-0 lead with 1:49 left in the first half. The Jaguars scored five plays later. On the Jaguars' first seven possessions, they punted six times and gained only 110 total yards.
