O.J. Simpson is celebrating the Bills playoff game with fans in Las Vegas

The Jaguars will take on the Steelers in Pittsburgh next weekend. Colvin has appeared in every game this season for the Jaguars' tough defense, and started five of those 16 games.

Tyrod Taylor completed 17 of 37 passes for 134 yards, with an interception, against the NFL's best pass defense.

The Jaguars' Blake Bortles was off most of the day, misfiring short and long, but made up for it with 88 yards rushing. Jacksonville wasn't able to do anything with it though as the Bills stopped them and forced them to punt. "Obviously, we need to score more points". The Bills settled for a field goal.

Buffalo had first-and-goal at the Jaguars 1 with 2:53 remaining. The fourth-year veteran completed 12-of-23 passes for 87 yards. The offense was pushed back and could not reach the end zone. 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.

Taylor was able to walk off the field with help from the training staff.

But this one's on Taylor.

All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey wasted little time turning his attention to Jacksonville's next playoff game.

In all, Buffalo ran 18 plays on the drive, which lasted 8:06.

He continually flipped the field for the Jaguars and set a franchise postseason record by placing the ball within the Bills' 20-yard line three times. Lee leads the team in receptions (56) and ranks second in yards (702).

Bills head coach Sean McDermott was gracious in talking about Taylor afterward, preferring to focus on his character, rather than his passing - never a good thing, really, if you're the QB. If he doesn't play the Bills' chances of pulling the upset get markedly more hard.

However, the Bills' loss can't be blamed on their defense. The Bills did everything they needed to do to win the contest, at least in the first half. Upcoming free agents Preston Brown, E.J. Gaines, and Kyle Williams may get resigned, or may not. It probably will lead to its playoff undoing, most likely next week against the Steelers.

Both times the defense got the job done, the second time viciously taking Tyrod Taylor to the ground and knocking him out cold. It was another disappointing game for the No. 4 overall pick, who closed the season out with a whimper. Their two biggest acquisitions were Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde no doubt.

One can argue that Tre'Davious White and Colt Anderson not dropping interceptions could have changed the game.

Will the Bills bring him back? The Bills have a lot of work to do in the offseason, but they show promise with their young talent and the draft picks they hold for this years' National Football League draft.

The Jags won one of the ugliest games I've ever seen today in the wild card round of the playoffs.

Prior to Sunday, the Jaguars' last playoff win was a 31-29 victory at Pittsburgh on January 5, 2008, and their last home playoff win was a 62-7 demolishing of Miami on January 15, 2000.
