NFL Wild Card Preview: Bills at Jaguars

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone watches warmups before an NFL football game against the Los Angeles Chargers Sunday Nov. 12 2017 in Jacksonville Fla

Syracuse Football: Doug Marrone and Tom Coughlin have flipped the script in Jacksonville

Peterman threw five interceptions in the first half and was benched for the second half.

This is Dareus' first playoff game in seven seasons. The climb to the playoffs became steeper because of the blowout loss to the Chargers. Possibly even more important, the Bills rushing defense has been near the bottom for the second half of this season. He didn't transform into a different quarterback. "Allen has played a lot of football and has been very productive", Marrone said.

Milano a new add to injury listThere were a handful of other players who aren't practicing for the Bills today. A major factor in a potential win for the Bills?

He will not, however, shuffle the coaching staff. And he never let that impact how he led his teammates.

"It pointed to the "shirtless, body-painted guy screaming himself hoarse" with a game focus so intense it was as if he were on the field ... watching someone play triggers mirror neurons that make the fan feel nearly as if he is the doer through a "vicarious sense of success". He has yet to practice this week, but did participate in stretches Thursday before leaving the field with a trainer. Bills traded 340-pound run stopper to Jacksonville in late October for sixth-round draft pick that improved to fifth when Jags made playoffs.

Through hiring Marrone and Coughlin, the Jaguars went all-in on quarterback Blake Bortles' potential, and 12 months later, it appears as if that was the right decision to make.

The Jaguars are heavily favored in this matchup, but they could be susceptible to an upset if Bortles continues to turn the ball over at a high rate. Also, the Jaguars were leading the National Football League in multiple defensive categories, and Bortles had gone on the best three-game stretch of his four-year career (903 yards, seven touchdowns, no interceptions).

"He's done a lot of things that have given us problems", Marrone said of Taylor. However it comes about, we just want to win. "We've done that every week so far".

Once again, Bortles has to avoid messing up and giving the Bills a chance. In the offseason, he asked Taylor to take a pay cut.

In the locker room, McDermott says he is confident in the leadership he sees there. "I believe it can be developed, going through certain trials and tribulations and what not".

At times, it started with the quarterback.

"I know my body, I know myself", McCoy said. "He's hard at work; maximising the treatment opportunities to get himself to where he can play".

This is just good old clean fun with two fan bases who aren't annoying. yet. I didn't have any problem with how he would respond. "It's good to have a guy like that, especially a dominant player like him, and it's exciting that he's on my side of the ball". "We all know that".

Despite being a clear underdog on paper, the Bills enter this weekend playing with house money. If Jacksonville can limit turnovers, the Jaguars are the better team and should have no problem advancing to the next round to play the Pittsburgh Steelers.
