Local Bills Fans In Jacksonville Feeling at Home During Pregame

Local Bills Fans In Jacksonville Feeling at Home During Pregame

"I live now, in the moment", he said after the Buffalo Bills were eliminated from the playoffs with a 10-3 loss to the Jaguars at EverBank Stadium. He fumbled one shotgun snap at his own 8, picked it up and ran 26 yards on 2nd-and-15. Leonard Fournette rushed for 57 yards on 21 carries.

It's a credit to Bortles' toughness that he managed to do just enough to win the game.

Bortles is the second starting quarterback in the past 25 seasons to win a playoff game with more rushing yards than passing yards (88 rushing, 87 passing). First-year coach Sean McDermott further rocked the boat when he benched veteran quarterback Tyrod Taylor for rookie fifth-round pick Nathan Peterman in what became a blowout loss November 19 to the Los Angeles Chargers. In the past 10 postseasons, only Colin Kaepernick has scrambled for more yards in a game (85 in the 2013 wild-card round).

That seemed unreachable with the way Bortles played in the first half.

The punters and the special teams units were kept busy on Sunday.

He didn't have much time to make the decision with the Bills rushing to the line to run another play, but how much time did he need? McCoy was injured with an ankle sprain during last week's game and was questionable leading up to today, and is now officially listed as active.

Punter Brad Nortman punted nine times Sunday. He set a new Jaguars postseason franchise record for punts within the 20-yard line against Buffalo. Nate Peterman came in the game on a fourth-and-3 and he rushed for four yards for a first down. Peterman completed 1-of-3 passes for 14 yards.

"Not at alI", said Bortles when asked did he mind gaining more yards rushing than passing.

The Jaguars were without running back T.J. Yeldon due to an illness. Receiver/punt returner Jaydon Mickens left with a hamstring injury and did not return.
