Jaguars defense shines in wild-card win over Bills

Jacksonville quarterback Blake Bortles proved to be pretty elusive for the Buffalo defense in Sunday's AFC wild-card game rushing for more yards than he had passing

It turns out that breaking tables and fighting in the stands in Jacksonville weren't the only extreme things that Buffalo Bills fans did during their short-lived return to the playoffs. Despite low expectations coming into the season, despite glaring holes on the roster, and despite even playing poorly at various points throughout the 2017 season, they made the 2018 NFL Playoffs, breaking their record-long drought.

ELECTRIC ATMOSPHERE: The Jaguars enjoyed a rare packed house for the franchise's first home playoff game in 18 years, and thousands of Bills fans tailgated outside EverBank Field and crowded into nearby bars. Expect this game to be extremely competitive as both teams attempt to prove that they truly belong in the playoffs. Some of them returned home Monday Morning, landing at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport. This season, McCoy ran for over 1,100 rushing yards and had six rushing touchdowns. McCoy also had 44 yards receiving. He actually rushed for more yards (88) than he passed for (87). "We earned this and were going to continue to grind".

The score was Koyack's first of the season (second in career) and capped a 15-play drive that took 8:52 - the Jaguars' longest drive by time this season. Thompson was in good position to block, but the replay showed that he grabbed the jersey of the Jacksonville defender.

Jaguars' head coach Doug Marrone: making his first postseason appearance as National Football League head coach.

A drab first quarter finished scoreless and the second quarter almost followed suit as both sides started nervously before a fantastic interception by Jaguars cornerback Aaron Colvin gave the match some spark.

Thankfully, Hackett opened up the playbook from the Arizona Cardinals game - he gave Bortles more freedom with his legs and the Jacksonville offense finally found success. Jacksonville beat Pittsburgh the last time the two teams played, but Bortles threw for 85-yards in that game, meaning in Jacksonville's two biggest games of the season Bortles had less than 100-yards passing. Colvin has appeared in every game this season for the Jaguars' tough defense, and started five of those 16 games. 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. Which is why the Steelers would like to keep Bortles - and Fournette - contained and force the Jaguars into passing situations while sealing the running lanes.

As for my prediction, I have to side with Jacksonville.

McCoy was listed as questionable to play in Sunday's AFC wild-card game after spraining his right ankle in a victory at Miami last week. "I think it brings hope for our fans and communities that their teams can turn it around". It's just like a cable or satellite TV service, except it's delivered over the internet.

Can't get enough of Campus Sports? Veteran Ramon Humber, who replaced Milano in the lineup, attempted to jam Koyack at the line of scrimmage, then was a step late in coverage, giving up the catch.
