Jay Skurski's 10 observations from the Bills' loss to Jacksonville

Jay Skurski's 10 observations from the Bills' loss to Jacksonville

Taylor's pass on first down was tipped at the line of scrimmage and fell incomplete.

Taylor slammed his helmet hard against the ground after getting thrown down by Dante Fowler Jr.

After Buffalo kicker Steven Hauschka converted a 31-yard field goal late in the first half, the Jaguars' defense shut out the Bills for the rest of the game.

The Bills stalled on their last-minute drive to tie the game, during which starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor suffered an injury. The victor of that game will play either New England or Tennessee in the AFC Championship Game. Fittingly, the game ended with cornerback Jalen Ramsey intercepting (with controversy) Peterman to seal the fate of the Buffalo Bills. Taylor stayed down and at one point was not moving.

Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor finished with 134 yards and an interception, completing 17 of his 37 attempts.

Ramsey held up and Benjamin was called for offensive pass interference. Taylor then lost 2 on a run and threw a pair of incompletions. If the call was the fade, Dennison should take the blame for what was a awful decision. "We just didn't play well". It's not that complicated, but coaches always seem to find a way.

After being stopped on third and goal at Buffalo's one-yard line by an awesome tackle by linebacker Lorenzo Alexander, it seemed like the Bills stopped the Jags leading to a fourth and goal.

O.J. Simpson is rocking Buffalo Bills blue once again. At the end of a Seahawks-Jaguars game in December, Seahawks defensive lineman Quinton Jefferson had to be held back from going into the crowd after someone threw a drink at him. After reviewing the play, the play stood and the clock ran out on the Bills. Josh Rosen, Sam Darnold, and Heisman winners Baker Mayfield and Lamar Jackson are all expected to be first-round picks this season.

Bortles ran for 35 yards in the first half, including gains of 20 and 12 yards to set up Lambo's field goal. He's not any different, or more aggressive, than any other coach.

Bortles' scrambles proved the difference, because the Bills defence successfully blanketed the Jags' sensational rookie running back Leonard Fournette, holding him to just 57 yards on 21 carries. Thompson was in good position to block, but the replay showed that he grabbed the jersey of the Jacksonville defender.

"He might not be the fastest guy in the world", cornerback Joe Haden said, "but it you get a first down on third-and-8 or third-and-9, those kill a defense". It was obvious that points wouldn't come often in this game and that indeed that was the case.

One can argue that Tre'Davious White and Colt Anderson not dropping interceptions could have changed the game. I'm really excited about the game. Guard Richie Incognito (shoulder) and Clay (hamstring) left briefly in the first half but returned.

The Jaguars took a 10-3 lead with 42 seconds left in the third quarter.

He put together one decent drive, making as many plays with his feet as his arm, and capped it with a 1-yard scoring pass to backup tight end Ben Koyack on a gutsy, fourth-and-goal call.
