Jaguars, Bortles struggle, but get past Bills in AFC wild card

Jaguars, Bortles struggle, but get past Bills in AFC wild card

The sixth-seeded Bills (9-8) will head home after ending the longest, current playoff drought in North American professional sports.

After an incompletion in the end zone on third down, Vonn Bell sacked Newton on a safety blitz, ensuring the Saints (12-5) swept all three meetings with Carolina (11-6) this season, in addition to winning their first playoff game in four seasons.

McCoy said he wanted to be able to cut without pain in the game. Without McCoy, the run-first Bills would be forced to turn to Mike Tolbert, shifting a ton of the pressure onto the arm (and legs) of quarterback Tyrod Taylor and creating a much more hard set of circumstances. But after an intentional grounding penalty, he was intercepted by Jalen Ramsey at midfield with 26 seconds remaining to seal the outcome.




Bortles also provided an unexpected boost in the running game, picking up a career-high 88 yards on 10 carries and extending multiple drives with his legs.

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. "We made some bad plays, but we won and that's all that matters". The Jaguars defense controlled the game, forcing Roethlisberger to throw five interceptions and even question his ability to play the game.
