Jacksonville's defence shuts down Buffalo to reach Divisional playoff game

08 January 2018

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.

The run game will likely decide this matchup, with the Bills' LeSean McCoy and the Jaguars' Leonard Fournette as the best players on the field for either offense.

The newest favorite Bills quarterback?

The Jaguars tied the game after taking over at their own 47 yard line with 40 seconds remaining in the half. That said, the Bills traded defensive tackle Marcell Dareus to the Jaguars before Week 8 and the two run defenses went in different directions.

The former Bishop McDevitt standout, who has rushed for 1,138 yards and six touchdowns this season, injured his ankle in Sunday's 22-16 win over Miami. Fournette averaged 2.7 yards per carry and also tallied 21 receiving yards on three catches.

Skies will remain mostly sunny as the cold but quiet weather pattern continues through the first half of the first week of 2018. With wind chills from -10 to -20 Sunday and Monday morning, frost bite will be possible on exposed skin within 30 minutes.

The Jaguars - who were playing in their first post-season match since 2007 - took the lead for the first time in the match after Bortles found tightend Ben Koyack to complete a 15-play for 86 yards in the third quarter.

Andy Dalton's touchdown pass to Tyler Boyd to beat Baltimore meant the Bills edged into the final wild card spot instead of the Ravens. But receiver Kelvin Benjamin was called for offensive pass interference in the end zone.

Midway through the second quarter the Bills finally broke through on a 31-yard field goal from field goal from Stephen Hauschka to give Buffalo a 3-0 lead, but it didn't come without some controversy.
