Tyrod Taylor knocked out of Bills playoff game with under 2 minutes

Tyrod Taylor knocked out of Bills playoff game with under 2 minutes

This season, Bortles threw for 3,687 passing yards and 21 passing touchdowns. Not even in the backyard against family and friends.

Blake Bortles put together one decent drive all day, doing as much with his legs as his arm, and the defensive-minded Jacksonville Jaguars eked out an ugly and sometimes unwatchable 10-3 victory against the Buffalo Bills in an AFC wild-card game Sunday.

"That's usually not ideal for a quarterback", Bortles said.

"We had that in our minds that if you give our defense one [touchdown], we're going to make the rest happen", Ramsey said. We didn't have our A-game.

Allowed 244 points in last nine games (4-5); allowed 115 points in first seven games (5-2) in '17. This looks to be a defensive battle and a turnover here or there would increase either teams' chance to win this game.

Bortles made up for it with his scrambling ability.

Bortles' performance against the Bills was far from his best. "But we found a way to win, and that's all that matters".

As a passer, Bortles finished Sunday's matchup 12-of-23 for 87 yards and a touchdown, which was only good for an average of 3.78 yards per pass. The Jaguars, however, foolishly jumped offsides so Buffalo had first-and-goal at the 1. We earned this. Theres no mistaking. We have a lot of talent and guys are hungry and put the work in. But if he's on the field as more than a decoy, Buffalo can do what they do best: Run the football, control the clock, and lean on Tyrod Taylor's conservative approach to quarterbacking. That came when Nathan Peterman came in after Taylor was injured with 1:27 remaining when his head hit the turf after being tackled by Dante Fowler. That's what we're about and that's what we're going to keep trying to do. "I don't care about the building blocks", running back LeSean McCoy said.

This defense was not looking sharp heading into the season, but they have helped the team win in crucial situations.

When he split the uprights for the fourth time - with 11:01 left in the third - the Panthers had gained 254 yards without scoring a touchdown.

Also, coach Doug Marrone made a decision to start former Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus against his old team. Linebacker Myles Jack sacked Taylor on the next play, forcing a punt.

Peterman is of course not the first quarterback to suffer at the hands of the dominant Jacksonville defense this season.

One can argue that Tre'Davious White and Colt Anderson not dropping interceptions could have changed the game. Then, he tried to complete a similar throw to Thompson on Ramsey. He did not return.

"It is extremely tough [to score only three points], especially when their offense wasn't moving the ball at all", guard Richie Incognito said. The Jacksonville Jaguars will face the Pittsburgh Steelers (13-3) on the road in the Divisional Round next Sunday. Jacksonville came away with a 30-9 victory on October 8, as the defense kept Pittsburgh out of the end zone while coming away with five interceptions of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. The Steelers have won 10 of 11 since, the lone loss coming against New England.

"(Offensively), we never really got into a rhythm and we weren't able to get anything on third downs, so I'd be a fool to sit here and say I'm not concerned", said Marrone.
