Saints and Jaguars win wild card games

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

The Bills were defeated by the Jags, 10-3.

Heading into next Sunday's Divisional Round tilt versus the Pittsburgh Steelers, Jags coach Doug Marrone conceded there are reasons to be concerned about his offense.

Let's get the bad news out of the way.

It took the Buffalo Bills 6,575 days to make it back to the playoffs, and they took on the Jacksonville Jaguars at EverBank Stadium in Jacksonville. The fourth-year pro averaged just 3.8 yards per attempt and missed receivers on routine throws over and over. And Bortles was just, well, Bortles. The Bills did not get the touchdown, and settled for a Stephen Hauschka field goal with 1:49 to go in the half.

Bortles ultimately rushed for 88 yards on 10 carries and was 12 of 23 for 87 yards passing, with one touchdown and no turnovers.

Buffalo's only red zone trip of the game will haunt it all offseason.

Because as it has all season long, one of the NFL's best defenses carried the day.

It is a sight that has become commonplace in areas where the free-killing herdsmen have had the misfortune of setting their foot. There are so many people there.

Evoking memories of Mark Brunell, the greatest quarterback in team history, Blake Bortles made play after play on Sunday similar to the man who led the Jaguars to four of their five playoff wins in franchise history before today. But it was a quiet 119 yards.

Offensive coordinator Rick Dennison is also on the hot seat for the offense's lack of finish. LeSean McCoy is the heart and soul of this Bills offense.

Bortles and Marrone both mentioned wind as a factor Sunday.

Taylor left the game late in the fourth quarter with an apparent head injury. But the pass rush got to him and forced an intentional grounding and on the following play Jalen Ramsey tipped the ball in the air in coverage and grabbed it for an interception before it hit the ground to finally end the game. "I am going to tell my kids about this because I don't know if they will ever make the playoffs again". "But we found a way to win, and that's all that matters".

Add to that, White's forced fumble on Tampa Bay's second-to-last possession with 2:20 remaining to set up Stephen Hauschka hitting a 30-yard field goal in a 30-27 win on October 22. In Pittsburgh, no less. Two of those picks were returned for scores.

There is no guarantee any of those quarterbacks will be better than Taylor, especially as rookies next season.

While Buffalo's playoff loss is disappointing, Bills fans shouldn't dwell on it for too long.

The Jaguars will be the underdog this week, but you can count on the #Sacksonville fans to send that Duval pride north.

These dudes triple-teamed one. Their defense has the ability to dictate the tempo of a game, just as it did against Buffalo. Meanwhile, the Jacksonville Jaguars are stumbling into the postseason. The Steelers won't be held to three points.

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

The Bills got away with that many times during the regular season but poor play calling will never win a playoff game.

But Sunday's win revealed the ingredients for a Steel City upset. The other National Conference second-round game next Saturday finds Atlanta at top seed Philadelphia. And turn Calais Campbell, Ramsey and that defense loose.

Buffalo had first-and-goal at the Jaguars 1 with 2:53 remaining.
