Jaguars Rally After Blowing Big Lead; Top Bills 34-31 in London

Jacksonville Jaguars v Buffalo Bills

The Jaguars played an up and down game Sunday in London, building a huge lead on the Bills, giving it all back, but then putting it away late to pull out a 34-31 win over the Buffalo Bills to improve to 2-5 on the year.

Jacksonville led at one point 27-3, but the Bills rallied to take a 31-27 lead after a pick six with 5:34 left to play.

Blake Bortles though led the Jags downfield, and was able to hit Allen Hurns with a 31-yard score to put them up for good at 34-31 with 2:25 left to play.

That’s all the Jags would need, as their defense held from there to seal the win for the clubs second win of 2015.

Bortles threw for 182 yards with two touchdowns and a pick. He hit Allen Robinson with a 10-yard score with the Bills up 3-0 just 51 seconds into the second quarter to make it 7-3.

Disaster hit after that for Buffalo, as Bills QB E.J. Manuel was hit and fumbled the ball, and Chris Clemons went in from 6 yards out to make it 14-3. It took seconds to make it 21-3 as Telvin Smith went in from 26 yards to give the Jags a big lead.

Maunel threw for 298 yards, was sacked four times, and threw two touchdowns to go along with two interceptions.

He led the Bills back from down 27-13 at the half with a 58-yard TD pass to Marcus Easley and a two-point conversion from LeSean McCoy to make it a 27-24 with 6:42 left.

Corey Graham gave Buffalo the lead, as he picked off a Bortles pass and went 44 yards to make it 31-27 with 6:42 left.

After the took the lead their defense couldn’t stop Bortles and a key interference penalty was a huge swing on the game-winning drive for the Jaguars.

The Jaguars (2-5) won their first game in London after losing in each of the past two seasons at Wembley, the home of England’s national soccer team.

NFL Week Five Preview – Jacksonville vs Tampa Bay


A pair of young 1-3 teams do battle Sunday when the Buccaneers play host to the Jaguars at Raymond James Stadium at 1pm.

Jameis Winston played his worst game of his young career against the Panthers last Sunday.

He completed just 52.2 percent of his passes with four touchdowns and three interceptions in his first three games before things got worse last Sunday. He threw four picks – including one that was returned for a score – in a 37-23 home loss to Carolina.

“It’s just decision making,” he said. “That’s one thing we (take) pride in here is just making good decisions and winning the turnover ratio. Obviously, last game wasn’t what we expected, but I just have to get better every week.”

Winston was 26 of 43 attempts for a season-high 287 yards and two touchdowns. The Buccaneers won 26-19 at New Orleans on Sept. 20 in his only game without an interception.

The young QB will look to his new favorite WR, Vincent Jackson. The veteran wide out finished with season highs of 10 catches and 147 yards with a touchdown. The veteran receiver had nine receptions for 145 yards and a score over the first three games.

Running back Doug Martin also had a big game with 106 yards and a touchdown, but Jacksonville (1-3) is fourth in the NFL with 83.0 rushing yards allowed per game. The Jaguars held Indianapolis to 60 yards and 2.5 per carry in last Sunday’s 16-13 overtime road defeat.

The Jaguars at 1-3 have a lot in common with the Bucs, as they too have a young QB in Blake Bortles.

Their young QB has been inconsistent in his second season. He had arguably his best half in 17 career starts last Sunday when he completed 14 of 18 passes for 179 yards and a touchdown in the opening two quarters.

But he couldn’t lead the Jaguars to any points while connecting on 43.8 percent of his attempts in the second half and overtime. That’s been a troubling trend as Bortles has the NFL’s 10th-best first-half passer rating (99.7) but worst second-half mark (59.2).

“It’s the same game plan with the same players running each play, so it’s kind of hard to figure out why the lack of execution happens in the second half,” he said. “But I think it all comes back to paying attention to detail and staying locked in throughout the game.”

Young second-year wideout Allen Hurns put up a good game in the OT loss, as he had career highs of 11 receptions, including an eight-yard touchdown – and 116 yards against the Colts.

The Jags should be able to get T.J. Yeldon going in the running game. The rookie is coming off his best game as a pro with 105 yards on 22 carries last weekend.

This could be a fun game between two young teams, or a complete stinker. The winner will come down to the team that makes the less mistakes on offense, and right now that is Jacksonville, as Winston will make one or two bad decisions to cost his team the game.

Jacksonville 28 Tampa Bay 21

Fantasy Projections:

Jacksonville – Blake Bortles 184 yards 1 TD, T.J. Yeldon 117 yards rushing 2 TD, Allen Hurns 90 yards receiving 1 TD
Tampa Bay – Jameis Winston 265 yards 1 TDs, Doug Martin 88 yards 1 TD, Vincent Jackson 88 yards receiving 1 TD
