Blake Bortles, Jaguars Survive Bills, Will Face Steelers in Divisional Round

12 January 2018

Blake Bortles completed 12 of 23 passes for 87 yards, with a touchdown. Bortles had more rushing yards (88) than passing yards Sunday.

The first half only saw a field goal each with nothing to separate the teams.

The playoff game was a rude awakening for the Bills and their fans.

The #Buffalo Bills defense did their job by holding the Jacksonville Jaguars to only 10 points in the AFC Wildcard game this past weekend. If watching Taylor and the rest of the offense struggle to a 31st-ranked finish in passing yards per game (176.6) this regular season was not enough, Sunday's performance was further evidence Taylor is not the quarterback to lead Buffalo into Super Bowl contention.

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. The Bills had a big play by LeSean McCoy called back due to a penalty on one drive and later they had a first down in Jaguars' territory called back when Clay didn't reestablish himself after going out of bounds. They have two picks in the first round (No. 21 and 22) and could use either of those to draft a quarterback.

"I'm sure they're thinking that game was a fluke", Ramsey said.

Rookie Nathan Peterman, who hadnt played in four weeks, came in and converted on fourth down with a scramble, then threw a 14-yard pass to the Jaguars 38.

Taylor slammed his helmet hard against the ground after getting thrown down by Dante Fowler Jr. The Bills' inability to move the ball against the Jaguars was a major reason why they lost.

The Jaguars, leading 7-3 midway through the second quarter, faced a third-and-9 from their own 9.

Taylor almost ran for a 2-yard score prior to Hauschka's field goal but was tripped from behind by defensive end Calais Campbell. Leonard goes off again and those guys up front play as well they did last time and we can run the ball up there and not have to throw at all. Peterman picked up a clutch first down to keep the drive going but the hopes of winning crashed when Jalen Ramsey picked off Peterman on a catch that could have been argued as a deflected pass instead of a turnover.

Behind Bortles, the Jaguars finished fifth in the National Football League in time of possession, one spot lower than the Steelers. If all else fails, this first playoff game in 18 years at least showed what they obviously need to improve on for next season. "They've got to get into the end zone".

"The atmosphere was incredible", Colvin said. "It's a cool feeling, but at the same time, we've got bigger goals".

The Jaguars will play at Pittsburgh at 1:05 p.m. next Sunday.

Bortles, after finishing the first half completing 6 of 15 passes for 33 yards with no touchdowns, led a 15-play, 86-yard drive that gave the Jaguars their first lead. Guard Richie Incognito left the game with a shoulder injury and is questionable to return. Jacksonville came away with a 30-9 victory on October 8, as the defense kept Pittsburgh out of the end zone while coming away with five interceptions of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
