Richie Incognito injured during scoreless first quarter

The Bills are back in the playoffs for the first time since 1999, but they’re still looking for their first points since Steve Christie’s field goal set the stage for the Music City Miracle at the end of a Wild Card loss to the Titans 18 years ago.

The Jaguars are also looking to get on the board as the first quarter of Sunday’s game ended without any points for either team. The Bills had the longest drive just before the quarter came to an end, but they punted after Tyrod Taylor threw an incompletion while under pressure on third-and-2 near midfield.

LeSean McCoy has been used often despite the ankle injury that had his status in doubt heading into Sunday. He has seven carries and a catch, but they’ve produced just 15 yards against a Jaguars defense that has been just as unforgiving as it was during the regular season.

Their efforts to improve on that output will be hindered by the loss of left guard Richie Incognito. Incognito left with a shoulder injury 10 minutes into the game and is called questionable to return.

UPDATE 1:46 p.m. ET: Incognito returned for the Bills’ first possession of the second quarter, which began after Buffalo forced the third Jacksonville punt of the afternoon.

  1. The Bills need to get a run game going, Bortles is struggling like mad. First turnover, and that Buffalo D holds them. Jacksonville isn’t going to win this game if it continues.

  2. Taylor is another fake QB – I am so sick and tired of these running backs who think they can throw – time for the NFL to limit QB rushes and then to ban the player from playing QB once he reaches that mark – say five rushes in a game.

    If positions mean something, QB’s should never be allowed to just abandon the pass when they can’t handle the defense.

  3. Bortles shows his inability to be a decent QB. How do you miss two WIDE OPEN first down throws. I understand the wind factor, but he overthrew BOTH receivers on crossing patterns that were wide open.

  4. You’re 1st and goal from the one and you have a fake QB, you have to run the football.

    Horrible play calling by the Bills, even worse QB play.

  5. Nearly 10 attempts in the end zone just to score a field goal lol And Rodney Harrison thinks the Titans are the worst team in the playoffs (rolling eyes)

    Geno > Tyrod lol

  6. Just cancel the subpar afc games and go straight to Brady and his cult trainer losing to Vikings in the Super Bowl

  7. AFC is just riddled with weak teams… Basically these teams are just playing to see which will be the practice team for the Pats or Steelers… The only way this can be proven wrong is for 1 of these teams to send the Pats and Steelers home which is EXTREMELY doubtful!!!

    You’re both right. The Jags D was smart enough to not be fooled on the play but the jills offence not having enough faith in their running game to punch it in from the one is pathetic.
