The defensive units for the Jaguars and Bills proved equally effective in limiting scoring opportunities.

Both teams struggled offensively and somehow Blake Bortles ended up as the game's leading rusher. The Jaguars rank first in the league with 141.4 rushing yards per game, while the Bills rank sixth with 126.1 rushing yards per game.

Buffalo's defense played valiantly, particularly on third down where they held the Jaguars to two for 12 on third down conversions and allowed just a single red zone possession.


-Jacksonville got their first points just before the half expired as Josh Lambo was true from 44 yards out for a field goal to tie the score (3-3) with two seconds left in the half.

The run game will likely decide this matchup, with the Bills' LeSean McCoy and the Jaguars' Leonard Fournette as the best players on the field for either offense. But three plays later, Jalen Ramsey picked off a Peterman pass at the Jaguars' 47 yard line.

The Bills' Cinderella story continues into the playoffs with an AFC wild-card matchup with the Jaguars in Jacksonville.


With 1st-and-Goal inside the 1, instead of running for a potential touchdown, Tyrod Taylor threw to the corner of the endzone to Kelvin Benjamin.

And to think, all of this came after the Jaguars said the Bills didn't use all of the tickets they were allotted for the game.
