The Bills win Sunday wasn’t pretty but it was necessary. Although playoff hopes remain slim, Buffalo is in the hunt to end a 16-year post-season hiatus.
The Bills defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars 28-21 at New Era Field Sunday. LeSean McCoy scored two rushing TD’s including a 75 yard scamper while Tyrod Taylor threw for a TD (16-Yard strike to Justin Hunter) and ran for another to pace the team to victory.
The defense had better days. They allowed Blake Bortles and the Jags to stay in the game. Coming into the contest Jacksonville was 2-8 and the offense had seemed to hit a wall. The Bills Marcel Dareus had two sacks on the afternoon. The Bills trailed the Jags 7-6 at half. Chris Ivory left the game with a hamstring injury that hurt Jacksonville. Ivory rushed for a 1st quarter TD and was having success moving the chains early.
Ivory’s TD came on the Jaguars 1st possession, the first time they’ve been able to score on the opening drive in 25 games. Allen Hurns left the game, also with a hamstring injury.
Sammy Watkins returned and made 3 catches for 80 yards.
The Bills are now 6-5 and head to Oakland to face the 9-2 Oakland Raiders.
