Jaguars win first playoff game in 10 years, beat Bills 10-3

Jaguars win first playoff game in 10 years, beat Bills 10-3

Josh Lambo converted from 44 yards with two seconds remaining in the half to equalize for Jacksonville. If all else fails, this first playoff game in 18 years at least showed what they obviously need to improve on for next season.

"Yeah, I don't care what people call it", Ramsey said.

When the Jaguars got to the Buffalo 1-yard line - the only time all day they entered the red zone - they didn't hesitate.

True enough. Twenty-four teams, to be exact.

Bortles completed 12 of 23 for just 87 yards but repeatedly was able to make critical plays with his legs.

That's right. Bortles ran for more yards than he gained passing. No matter how short the answer was, Bortles didn't mince words.

It seemed to be more of the same from the first half as both teams punted on their opening drives to start the half, but Jacksonville's second drive is where everything started to click. We earned this. Theres no mistaking. Linebacker Lorenzo Alexander played his best game of the season on Sunday, recording ten tackles, two tackles for loss, and one sack.

"I think we should hold every team to zero because that's just the kind of defense we are", Colvin said.

The Jaguars' best offensive drive Sunday resulted in the touchdown that proved to be the difference: a one-yard pass from Bortles to tight end Ben Koyack on fourth-and-1.The play capped a 15-play, 86-yard drive, with the touchdown coming one play after rookie running back Leonard Fournette's dive over the top on 3-and-goal was stopped for no gain.

Thereafter, the Bills offence never advanced farther than Jacksonville's 38. Coach Doug Marrone gave a game ball to the fans. "Let's keep improving and let's go try and win a Super Bowl".

Emotions were high as fans watched the first half with the score tied 3-3. But he was terrible 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. Fittingly, the game ended with cornerback Jalen Ramsey intercepting (with controversy) Peterman to seal the fate of the Buffalo Bills.

But this one's on Taylor.

Fueled by a miracle berth into the National Football League playoffs, a herd of Buffalo Bills fans charged into Jacksonville Jaguars territory to do what they do best: threaten their well-being with drunken stunts, typically involving one or more folding tables. In the third game of the divisional round, there is a contest between two overachieving teams.

"I've been a Bills fan for 17 years, ever since I was born", Chris Johnson, a fan from Waverly, said.

"I thought he handled himself just like the rest of our football team", McDermott said, "with class and with a lot of pride". Jacksonville moves on inthe playoffs for the first time since 2007 to face the Pittsburgh Steelers in Pittsburgh. Ben Roethlisberger threw five interceptions, and Jacksonville won 30-9.

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

Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shahid Khan and the Jaguars Foundation have donated 1,000 tickets to refugees and Puerto Ricans who were displaced by Hurricane Maria.
