"I'm surprised at how well they are stacking up against this Jacksonville team", Johnson said. That meant the Bills punted the ball back to Jacksonville, which had two timeouts remaining and 40 seconds left on the clock. The key was Ben Roethlisberger's meltdown with five interceptions. "Once we got in the dance, we didn't want to be one and done". The offense was pushed back and could not reach the end zone.
The second quarter started out poorly for the Bills as Tyrod Taylor threw an interception on their opening drive of the second quarter. 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.
Bortles, who was 6 of 15 for 33 yards in the first half, also was Jacksonville's leading rusher with three carries for 35 yards. Taylor threw a pass to Kelvin Benjamin that fell incomplete and Benjamin was called for pass interference. Bortles was off all day, but made up for it with his legs. The other was Atlanta's Michael Vick in the 2004 divisional round against the Rams (119 rushing, 82 passing).
"That's usually not ideal for a quarterback", Bortles said. "Even if we didn't win the playoff game, I still think that the season is definitely a success for us Bills fans". "We've got to make sure we don't let him scramble, that we're disciplined in our rush lanes and make sure we bring him down". He gave up on plays too quickly throughout the afternoon, and the Bills' offense struggled to get anything going as a result. Expect this game to be extremely competitive as both teams attempt to prove that they truly belong in the playoffs.

Japan's Abe rejects calls for apology to 'comfort women'
Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at the Imperial Household Agency in Tokyo , Japan. The 2015 agreement was "a promise between the two nations".
"You know, when we got beat last week at Tennessee, I didn't run at all, so I thought we got beat without kind of shooting all of our shots, so I said it made it hard, so let's find some ways to move the ball and do some different stuff", Bortles said. It didn't help that Bortles misfired early and often. It ended with a 1-yard play-action pass to reserve tight end Ben Koyack on fourth-and-goal. You have to find another pitch to be able to land and be successful and get guys out. That's kind of the same thing with quarterbacking.
One Bills fan marked the occasion by opening a 19-year-old box of Flutie Flakes, pouring some milk over them and sampling a few bites for all of YouTube to see. "He battled in there, and it wasn't easy for him". He had to be helped off the field, forcing backup Nathan Peterman into the game with 1:27 remaining. Three plays later, Peterman was intercepted by Ramsey at the Jaguars 47.
In a game that redefined pathetic offense, with both teams contributing to the cause, the Jaguars were just a little less bad and escaped with 10-3 victory in front of a sellout crowd - now there's something you don't read very often - at EverBank Field. He walked away with $4 million, missed out on getting another head-coaching job and was hired as the Jaguars' offensive line coach in 2015.
"The atmosphere was incredible", Colvin said.
