Bills playoff drought over; rebuilding plan to continue

Bills playoff drought over; rebuilding plan to continue

With 1:17 on the clock, Peterman needed to take his team 58 yards down the field to tie or win the game. The drive featured two consecutive plays of over 10 yards by running back Leonard Fournette that pushed the Jaguars into Bills territory, a 16-yard pass from Bortles to tight end Marcedes Lewis and a few surprisingly effective scrambles by the Jacksonville quarterback to keep the Jaguars moving forward.

"Whether it's a home game in August or January, it's important for the Jaguars to consistently be good citizens and do the right thing for our community", Khan said in a statement, per's Michael DiRocco.

It was a game fans have been waiting almost two decades to watch. There was even a picture of OJ Simpson wearing a McCoy jersey as he watched the game at a Las Vegas bar.

The Bills have done much worse than Taylor since Jim Kelly retired more than 20 years ago, but they can also do better. Jacksonville came away with a 30-9 victory on October 8, as the defense kept Pittsburgh out of the end zone while coming away with five interceptions of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

Buffalo had first-and-goal at the Jaguars 1 with 2:53 remaining. They'll need to find defensive linemen to plug the run for next season and the Bills need to consider on who to re-sign for defense.

"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. "You try to move on from it".

The dramatic score capped a 15-play, 86-yard march by the Jaguars that took almost nine minutes.

The Jaguars were a clear favorite in this game, but the Bills defense performed very well. "I was trying to figure out the wind a little bit, but it's part of football".

"I want a running play".

Benue had brought into effect an anti-open grazing law on November 1, 2017, which ignited protests from local herdsmen. The leadership of the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, he said, should also be arrested and prosecuted for alleged genocide.

"Usually in situations like that when we're up in the two-minute with the corners, we play 10 yards off and not more", Ramsey said. The Jaguars managed only 230 yards, 33 less than the Bills. 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.

The second quarter started out poorly for the Bills as Tyrod Taylor threw an interception on their opening drive of the second quarter.

"We had a long field on most of our drives".

The Bills converted three of six third downs in the first quarter, but were 4 of 12 the rest of the game. The Jaguars' leading rusher was actually Bortles, who carried the ball 10 times for 88 yards.

"I wasn't 100 percent".

If Taylor is healthy I think he is better than Bortles because Bortles has proven during his career to be a turnover machine. "It's not the reason we lost". But the Bills missed a big opportunity on this play.

"I was surprised. Coming from Philadelphia the fans travel everywhere", he said.

Above all, most fans were thankful that the team gave them such a fun season. I'm extremely disappointed to let them down. "They are going to plan their revenge for what we did to them earlier in the year".

While Taylor's performance was less than inspiring, it shouldn't be the catalyst of the movement to get him out of Buffalo during the offseason.
