Playoff loss to Jaguars should end Tyrod Taylor era in Buffalo

  • Ben Koyack scores a touchdown

But in a world where it had been 10 years since a Jaguars playoff run and 19 years since a home playoff victory, Jacksonville's survival against the Buffalo Bills has huge ramifications for a city and team eager for a deep postseason stretch.

"That's usually not ideal for a quarterback but it is what it is", Bortles said of rushing for more yards than he had passing.

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.

"(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". "No one is trying to win a beauty contest". In a defensive game, both offenses' struggled without question but the Jaguars were the only ones' to score a touchdown late in third quarter.

The Jaguars' best offensive drive Sunday resulted in the touchdown that proved to be the difference: a one-yard pass from Bortles to tight end Ben Koyack on fourth-and-1.The play capped a 15-play, 86-yard drive, with the touchdown coming one play after rookie running back Leonard Fournette's dive over the top on 3-and-goal was stopped for no gain. 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.

Bortles played for Central Florida from 2011-13, leading the team to a 12-1 record and a win over Baylor in the Fiesta Bowl in his final season. They also prohibited Blake Bortles from accomplishing much of anything.

First, while speaking about his commitment to "massive oil and gas", he compared himself to Hillary Clinton , who he said "was for windmills".


"Kind of reference it to a pitcher", Bortles said. "You go out and something is not on right, you don't have a fast ball, you have to find another pitch to be able to land and be successful and get guys out".

Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shahid Khan and the Jaguars Foundation have donated 1,000 tickets to refugees and Puerto Ricans who were displaced by Hurricane Maria.

The only other Jaguars points in the game came off the foot of kicker Josh Lambo, who knocked in a 44-yard field goal at the end of the first half to tie the game at 3-3.

After ending a near-two decade playoff drought, the Buffalo Bills will be going home after the first weekend of the postseason. Even early in the game, it was evident that the Jags' staff were calling a conservative game. "We just have to hunker down and get it done".

That's why we should all be behind this team if you have zero skin in the game. The foursome, made up of cornerbacks Gaines and Tre'Davious White (first-round pick) and safeties Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer (free-agent additions), allowed 14 touchdowns passing (second fewest in National Football League behind Minnesota's 13) and was tied for sixth with 18 interceptions. Linebacker Myles Jack sacked Taylor on the next play, forcing a punt. Running back LeSean McCoy, who was questionable to play in the game after an ankle injury suffered in the regular season finale in Miami, had 119 total yards for Buffalo, including 75 on the ground. We have to do a better job. "We bend but don't break".

Yes, the Jaguars throttled the Steelers, 30-9, back in Week 5.
