  • Studs and Duds from Jags 10-3 wild-card victory

The Bills' Cinderella story continues into the playoffs with an AFC wild-card matchup with the Jaguars in Jacksonville.

The Pittsburgh Steelers will play the Jacksonville Jaguars in their first playoff game next Sunday. That said, the Bills traded defensive tackle Marcell Dareus to the Jaguars before Week 8 and the two run defenses went in different directions.

Last night, media reports in Buffalo described "a sea of red white and blue" on the streets of Jacksonville and one bar owner told WKBW that "they have never seen this many fans representing an away team". McCoy was injured with an ankle sprain during last week's game and was questionable leading up to today, and is now officially listed as active.

McCoy's availability will be key for the Bills, who are in the playoffs for the first time in 17 years. Meanwhile, the Jaguars have not hosted a playoff game since losing to the Tennessee Titans in the 1999 AFC Championship Game, the closest the franchise has come to the Super Bowl.


Bortles was 12 of 23 for just 87 yards passing, but had 88 years on the ground for the Jaguars, who finished the regular season at 10-6 and were hosting their first home playoff game since January 2008.

After Tyrod Taylor was knocked out of the game with a head injury in the final two minutes, Nathan Peterman entered at quarterback for the Bills. Coach Sean McDermott said there is a "chance" McCoy could play after he was carted off the field in Miami.

Bortles is 11 of 21 for 85 yards while Fournette has 55 yards on 14 carries.

The Jaguars took the lead with a 15-play drive covering 86 yards in 8:52. "But the type of game like this, you've got to lay it all on the line".
