  • Buffalo Bills vs Jacksonville Jaguars NFL playoffs: Running game and stern defence the key in AFC Wild Card Round clash

Jacksonville, which won the AFC South title and the No. 3 seed for the AFC playoffs, advances to a conference semifinal next Sunday at No. 2 Pittsburgh.

Buffalo lost its first playoff game since 1999 because of a familiar storyline-lack of offensive punch. I just want to be able to cut well enough where I don't have a lot of pain when I cut. He was off most of the day, misfiring short and long, but made up for it with 88 yards rushing - becoming the second starting quarterback in the past 25 years to win a playoff game with more rushing yards than passing (87). Without McCoy, the run-first Bills would be forced to turn to Mike Tolbert, shifting a ton of the pressure onto the arm (and legs) of quarterback Tyrod Taylor and creating a much more hard set of circumstances.

The Jaguars' offense finished nine drives with punts, but none with turnovers. Bortles avoided interceptions entirely after throwing five in the previous two games.

Come the third quarter Jacksonville cashed in on what proved to be their only red zone scoring chance when Blake Bortles found TE Ben Koyack on fourth-and-goal from the one-yard line near the end of the third quarter.
