Sam Kouvaris: Jaguars beat Buffalo with defense, 'grit'

Sam Kouvaris: Jaguars beat Buffalo with defense, 'grit'

The win sets up a rematch against Pittsburgh next week. Ugly? Theyll gladly take that. This was the lowest-scoring playoff game since January 3, 1997 (Pittsburgh Steelers 7, New England Patriots 6 that day). The Steelers were housed by the Jaguars, 30-9, ijn Week 5 at Heinz Field.

10-3: Final score in Sunday's wild-card game won by the Jaguars.

Jacksonville's offense offered up a 10-point effort during the wild-card round win over the Buffalo Bills. All but one of their drives ended in punts. Ramsey then sealed the game with an incredible interception when Nathan Peterman came into the game for an injured Tyrod Taylor.

The game boiled down to two 4th-and-short situations close to the goal line, one for each team.

Peterman is of course not the first quarterback to suffer at the hands of the dominant Jacksonville defense this season. He was 6-of-15 passing for 33 yards but a couple of scrambles at the end of the half enabled Josh Lambo to kick a field goal to tie the game at three.

"We know they're going to be motivated".

Bortles capped the drive with a fourth-and-goal play-action TD pass from the Buffalo one-yard line, to backup tight end Ben Koyack.

'Do Not Travel' Advisory Issued for Parts of Mexico
The state with second-highest homicide rate - 61.6 per 100,000 - was Baja California Sur, home to the twin resorts of Los Cabos . The country as a whole had a "level 2" rating, which meant USA tourists or travelers should "exercise increased caution".

Game. Blouses. That was the difference.

Jacksonville's Blake Bortles threw for 87 yards and a touchdown and ran for a career-high 88 yards while Jaguars defenders dominated Buffalo in a 10-3 National Football League playoff victory Sunday.

He completed 12 of 23 passes for 87 yards, with a touchdown.

McDermott said after the game that Taylor, who was 17 of 37 for 134 yards with an interception, was in the concussion protocol.

"It was emotional going through the national anthem and looking around and you see the playoffs and wild-card logos and I was like, 'Man, all these teams are at home and we're playing.' I remember previous year watching the playoffs so this is a blessing to be in and to be able to capitalize on this opportunity and keep going".

Buffalo's success is due to star running back LeSean McCoy. We didn't want to treat this like a bowl game, go down to Florida and everybody relaxes.

Tesco enjoys a record Christmas as food sales boost performance
Tesco's update is the latest from the so called Big Four supermarkets, which also includes Sainsbury's, Asda and Morrisons . Food sales rose 3.6% on a total basis to £1.666bn, but like-for-like food sales were down 0.4%.

Buffalo's Stephen Hauschka kicked a 31-yard field goal with 1:53 to play in the second quarter to open the scoring. However, Fournette had less than 70 rushing yards in each of the last two weeks.

"It's been enjoyable, especially the people, all Bills fans are great so it's really nice to enjoy them with all of them", Johnson said.

Shady McCoy, is he healthy? It didn't help that Bortles misfired early and often.

Buffalo is scheduled to have the 21st and 22nd picks in the draft, the second acquired in a draft-day trade of first-round picks with the Chiefs in April.

Buffalo got two first downs and seemed to be on the move, but an intentional grounding penalty would give Buffalo a 2nd and 20.

Westbrook was the only Jaguars receiver to catch a pass in the game. But they at least stepped on the gas a few times when their few opportunities presented themselves.

Taylor went down late in the fourth quarter with a head injury.

Sens' Kelly named to Canadian Olympic team
VERNON - Hockey Canada has announced the roster for the men's Olympic hockey team and a Vernon player has made the cut. Cloud State, Borgen has played in 18 games for the Huskies this year with a goal and seven assists to his name.

But the same might be true for Bortles, too. The Steelers won't be held to three points.
