Jacksonville Jaguars must limit turnovers to beat Buffalo Bills

"(I do) not want to make any promises", McCoy said on Thursday, three days ahead of the Bills' wild-card road game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Twelve of the 18 coaches, including Marrone, have coached at least one game in the playoffs. But Jacksonville isn't too anxious about not receiving the first-round bye unlike the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers. The Jaguars are the top seed here with their 10-6 record.

McCoy appeared in all 16 regular season games for the Bills this season.

When the Buffalo Bills traded defensive tackle Marcell Dareus to the Jacksonville Jaguars in late October, the thought of potentially facing off against the 27-year-old in a playoff game in January likely didn't cross their minds. However, his status remains in doubt for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

The playoff drought ended for the Jacksonville Jaguars this season. Before that, the Jaguars had won 7 out of 8 games, with their lone loss coming in Arizona. Blake Bortles threw for 3,687 yards, 21 touchdowns and 13 interceptions on 315 of 523 passing, good for a 60.2% completion percentage. He also leads his team in passes received, with 59 successful ones. The Bills secondary will go up against a receiving core led by Keelan Cole who has been reliable for the Jags.

Leonard Fournette's thousand-yard season is costing him thousands. If Marrone is smart, and I think he is, then the plan here should just be to play defense, keep it simple and take periodic shots downfield on offense.

McCoy finished fourth in the league with 1,138 rushing yards this year, and he was second in the league in carries with 287. Their kick-return unit has been a weakness, but otherwise the Bills have been very solid across the board with a good kicking game and dependable coverage units. Taylor was given the job back - thanks to Peterman's horrific performance that some Bills fans still defend - but Tyrod is a limited quarterback who doesn't make mistakes, but doesn't win games. Furthermore, the Bills need all the help they can get to overcome the league's No. 2 overall defense. He's scored three times in the last four games and has 11 catches in his last three outings. The Bills have to look at options different than McCoy, and Mike Tolbert, no matter how professional he is - will have a tough time moving the football against the Jaguars.

Jacksonville.com reports that the tickets made available by the tarp removal sold out in six minutes and that demand on secondary sites for the Jaguars-Bills matchup is higher than any other wild-card game.

The first-ever meeting between the Bills and Jaguars was in the 1996 playoffs.
