After clinching a spot in the postseason, the Jacksonville Jaguars allowed 44 points in San Francisco, and then scored just 10 in a row loss to the Titans. Before that, the Jaguars had won 7  out of 8 games, with their lone loss coming in Arizona. Blake Bortles leads the offense for the Jaguars with more than 3,600 passing yards. The quarterback also threw 21 touchdowns.

The top target this season was Keelan Cole. Cole took advantage of the loss of Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns. The big dog in the offense ofor Jacksonville is Leonard Fournette. The former LSU running back rushed for more than 1,000 yards and 9 touchdowns. The Jacksonville defense finished second in the league allowing just 16.8 points per game.

Buffalo Need Help at Running Back

The Buffalo Bills made the postseason, but now need help. It’s likely that top running back Le’Sean McCoy will not play in this game. McCoy was a great deal of the Bills offense with more than 1,130 rushing yards and 6 touchdowns. The Bills finished as the 6th best offense on the ground this season.

That puts Tyrod Taylor, who led the 31st ranked passing offense against the top passing defense in the league. The Bills could try to get creative, but certainly are going to have their work cut out for them in this game. Buffalo comes into the game with three wins in their last 4 games.

Jaguars Win at Home

Too many injuries for the Buffalo Bills, and the biggest is LeSean McCoy. 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. The Bills defense finds a way to keep this game close, but in the end, this is game that the Jacksonville Jaguars will win. Bet on the Jaguars -8 over the Bills on Sunday.
