Blake Bortles Had More Rushing Yards Than Passing vs. Buffalo

  • Jacksonville Jaguars fans celebrate in the stands after the Jaguars defeated the Buffalo Bills 10-3

If Buffalo plans on winning its first playoff game since 1995, Taylor and McCoy will need to play well.

For the Bills, they had the game plan to stop Jacksonville - stuff the run and force Blake Bortles to throw - until the quarterback began using his feet to beat them on the ground and, again, they failed to adapt. Gifted a first and goal from the 1, the Bills opted to throw, and former FSU receiver Kelvin Benjamin was flagged for offensive pass interference; Buffalo ended up settling for a field goal and a 3-0 lead. It was a 15-play, 86-yard march that ended with Bortles throwing a 1-yard touchdown pass to someone named Ben Koyack on fourth-and-goal, a rare risky maneuver by Marrone who bypassed a go-ahead field goal.

For most of Sunday's game, Blake Bortles and the Jacksonville offense were bad.

His first play was largely successful, though not in conventional terms.

The Jaguars' defense made the only touchdown of the day stand up.

Rookie quarterback Nathan Peterman, a Bartram Trail grad, ran for 4 yards on the ensuing fourth-and-3 play.

One thing that did surprise McCoy was how many fans came down for the game despite having less than a week to make travel plans. Taylor completed 17 of 37 passes on the day for 134 yards and one interception.

The Jaguars (11-6) will visit the Pittsburgh Steelers (13-3) in an AFC Divisional Playoff in Pittsburgh next Sunday.

The Bills experienced that first-hand in Sunday's AFC wild-card game.

In a game that redefined pathetic offense, with both teams contributing to the cause, the Jaguars were just a little less bad and escaped with 10-3 victory in front of a sellout crowd - now there's something you don't read very often - at EverBank Field.

Jacksonville routed Pittsburgh 30-9 in early October on the Steelers' home field. Buffalo's Stephen Hauschka was good from 31 yards away three possessions before. After all, the Bills weren't supposed to make the playoffs in 2017. On Sunday, in their 58th season, the Buffalo Bills made their 29th playoff appearance.

And yet, the Jaguars won the game. The foursome, made up of cornerbacks Gaines and Tre'Davious White (first-round pick) and safeties Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer (free-agent additions), allowed 14 touchdowns passing (second fewest in National Football League behind Minnesota's 13) and was tied for sixth with 18 interceptions. Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette was kept out of the end zone on two previous running plays, including a heck of an effort by Buffalo linebacker Lorenzo Alexander on the play before when Fournette attempted to jump over the offensive line for a touchdown. Blake Bortles and the offense, on the other hand, were dismal in the 10-3 victory over the Buffalo Bills.

In what turned out to be a defensive battle, the first points of the game did not come until moments after the 2-minute warning in the first half. 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. They actually allowed Bortles to throw it on first down and changed the field position.

Buffalo got two first downs and seemed to be on the move, but an intentional grounding penalty would give Buffalo a 2nd and 20.
