#BillsMafia invades Jacksonville for first playoff game in 18 years

08 January, 2018, 02:07 | Author: Lula Armstrong

There were questions about whether he'd play after he had to be carted off the field in Week 17, but he's doing just fine, thank you.

After all, this team hasn't played a postseason game since January 8, 2000. That essentially means the Bills would have to lean on an inconsistent Tyrod Taylor to try to pick apart arguably the league's best secondary, which could ultimately spell disaster.

This run put McCoy at 91 total yards in the game. That said, the Bills traded defensive tackle Marcell Dareus to the Jaguars before Week 8 and the two run defenses went in different directions.

Buffalo - who suffered the longest barren spell without post-season action across all four major sports in the U.S. before this season - had not featured in the play-offs since losing 22-16 at this stage in 1999, and had not reached the Divisional Round since 1995.


Koyack had five catches in the regular season and no touchdowns. He was 6-of-15 passing for 33 yards. Bortles led Jacksonville to 84 yards on 22 plays. But receiver Kelvin Benjamin was called for offensive pass interference in the end zone.

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette rushed 21 times for 57 yards in a victory over the Bills on Sunday. Bortles scrambled twice for first downs to get within field goal range for Josh Lambo, who connected from 44 yards with 2 seconds left.

Taylor was tended to by the team's medical staff on the field. It was the first career playoff game for the 11-year veteran, who signed with the Jaguars as a free agent in 2011 after being drafted by Buffalo.
