Jaguars edge Bills to advance in playoffs

JACKSONVILLE FL – JANUARY 07 Quarterback Blake Bortles

Embalm it in turpentine, set the kindling beneath at that precise point and let the matches fly. With AP Photos.The Jacksonville Jaguars used another defensive gem to beat the Buffalo Bills 10-3 in an AFC wild-card game. It went from ugly at 0-0 after 27 minutes to downright heinous in the time and effort it took to net two field goals in the run-up to halftime. This was the lowest-scoring playoff game since January 3, 1997 (Pittsburgh Steelers 7, New England Patriots 6 that day).

The Jaguars will play at second-seeded Pittsburgh next Sunday, a rematch from Week 5. The Jaguars stunned the Steelers 30-9 in early October. The Bills did everything they needed to do to win the contest, at least in the first half.

Brief and disappointing as the Buffalo Bills' first playoff appearance in 18 years was, veteran center Eric Wood can already find a bright side. But they couldn't muster enough offense to seal the game and had to punt.

Blake Bortles "led" his Jacksonville Jaguars to a playoff victory over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. In what should prove to be his final game in a Bills uniform, Taylor and the Buffalo offense came up short in a 10-3 loss to Jacksonville. Buffalo failed to convert on second-and-2 and then third-and-2 from the 4, and Sean McDermott called for a field goal.

He would still need to alert British authorities of any movement outside the embassy. He has also called Assange a hacker.

There were probably plenty of tables smashed, since that's a thing Bills fans do in the parking lot, but just in case there weren't, National Football League on CBS analyst Bill Cowher, a former standout at NC State and five-year National Football League vet, had them covered.

Game. Blouses. That was the difference. His TD pass to backup tight end Ben Koyack late in the third quarter was his best throw of the game.

Before their win over the Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday, word leaked that Mike Mularkey would lose his job after the game because, like most observers, the Tennessee head office know how poor his coaching record is and naturally assumed it was a match-up the Titans would lose. Bortles was off all day, but made up for it with his legs. Buffalo's starting quarterback, Tyrod Taylor, completed just 17 of 37 passes for 134 yards and an interception. After taking the ball in the shotgun, with a pass play clearly the design, Peterman's pocket collapsed and he managed to scramble to his left, gaining four yards down the touch line.

Was Tony Romo, who called the game for CBS and at one point was laughing at Bortles' lack of precision, the best quarterback in the house on Sunday? Though, that hasn't helped our first two home teams this wild card weekend.

Packers executive Eliot Wolf heads to Cleveland Browns
He was selected by the Houston Oilers with the No. 3 overall pick of the 1987 NFL Draft and spent six seasons playing in the NFL. All three worked with the Chiefs under Dorsey, who was surprisingly let go by the team in June after four seasons.

The Bills, too, had a chance from the 1-yard line. After the penalty, Taylor threw two straight incompletions making Stephen Hauschka come out to kick the field goal.

Shady McCoy, is he healthy? No matter what happens during the course of a game, he has that belief that he can go down and lead us on any given drive. The fourth-year pro averaged just 3.8 yards per attempt and missed receivers on routine throws over and over. He had a career-high in rushing, racking up 88 yards on the afternoon. All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey says "I'm sure they're thinking that game was a fluke".

Getting the ball to start the second half, the offense moved the ball a bit. In the opening half, this looked like the type of the game the 2017 Jaguars lost because of inept offensive play. Besides LeSean McCoy, who ended up with over 100 yards of rushing and receiving in the game, the team's wide receivers did not step up as playmakers.

The dramatic score capped a 15-play, 86-yard march by the Jaguars that took almost nine minutes. Looking at the box score, McCoy was the only receiver to eclipse 23 yards, which is telling as to how stifling the pass defense was.

Panthers fire OC Shula, QB coach Dorsey
The Panthers were eliminated from the playoffs this season by the New Orleans Saints in the wild card round last weekend. He helped Newton and the Carolina offense reach the Super Bowl in 2015 before the Panthers lost to the Denver Broncos.
