#BillsMafia invades Jacksonville for first playoff game in 18 years

Jaguars get playoff rematch of October blowout win over Steelers

The Bills' Cinderella story continues into the playoffs with an AFC wild-card matchup with the Jaguars in Jacksonville. The first time these two teams played this season, the Steelers manhandled them 40-17.

The Bills finished the season 8-8 and came third in the AFC East while the Jags finished 5-11 in the AFC South.

The newest favorite Bills quarterback? Taylor has only thrown four interceptions all year, but that number could rise considering the mismatches on the outside, with his overwhelmed receivers going against Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye.

Peterman finished with one of three passes completed for 14 yards and one interception.

But, he has his first career playoff win.

Buffalo - who suffered the longest barren spell without post-season action across all four major sports in the U.S. before this season - had not featured in the play-offs since losing 22-16 at this stage in 1999, and had not reached the Divisional Round since 1995.

It didn't go so well the first time around.

After a 2-2 start to the season it looked like another season of struggle in inconsistency in northern Florida despite a coaching change that saw Gus Bradley replaced with Marrone. He was promoted to interim head coach for the final two games of the 2016 season after Gus Bradley was sacked and got the full-time job in January.

The first half was filled with rough offense, especially for the Jaguars.

Rookie running back Leonard Fournette tore Heinz Field up for 181 yards and two touchdowns in a powerful 30-9 victory. He was 6-of-15 passing for 33 yards.
