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

Ben Roethlisberger wanted another shot at the Jaguars defense. Be careful what you wish for

Buffalo's Tyrod Taylor is 13 of 26 for 98 yards while LeSean McCoy has 15 carries for 66 yards. Conversely, he has completed just 55.6 percent of his throws on the road, averaging 193.0 yards per game and 6.35 yards per attempt with a 6-to-8 TD:INT ratio. He's been the most productive skill-position player for either team so far and is a big reason the Bills are tied up, 3-3.

Buffalo allowed a league-worst 18 rushing touchdowns since trading Dareus and surrendered 148.7 rushing yards per game (second-most in the league during that span).

Buffalo - who suffered the longest barren spell without post-season action across all four major sports in the USA before this season - had not featured in the play-offs since losing 22-16 at this stage in 1999, and had not reached the Divisional Round since 1995.

The Jaguars were finally able to move the ball on the final drive of the half. Bortles scrambled twice for first downs to get within field goal range for Josh Lambo, who connected from 44 yards with 2 seconds left.

But their visit to Pittsburgh in week five gave a first real glimpse of what this Jacksonville team could become. It was the first career playoff game for the 11-year veteran, who signed with the Jaguars as a free agent in 2011 after being drafted by Buffalo. The Bills got into the playoffs this season after the Baltimore Ravens lost on a last-minute touchdown pass to the Cincinnati Bengals.

If the Bills win on Sunday, they would go to Foxborough to take on the New England Patriots.
