Stadium food provider Delaware North is preparing a special teal-based menu for Jacksonville's playoff game against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, breaking out the special dyes to turn brews, burgers and more a special shade of light blue. This is an AFC Wildcard game, at EverBank Field in Jacksonville.
The Jaguars finished the season tied for fifth in turnover margin at plus-10. Marrone served as the interim coach for two games last season after Bradley was sacked and was promoted to head coach last January.
The 1999 season was also the last time the Bills played in any playoff game, and that particular game happened to be the contest that ended up going down in National Football League history as the "Music City Miracle", the last-second win by the Tennessee Titans on their way to the Super Bowl XXXIV. Buffalo's feature back, who suffered an ankle injury in Sunday's regular season finale, was not fit to participate.
Jaguars defensive end Calais Campbell has played in nine playoff games to lead the Jaguars, all with Arizona. Blake Bortles threw for 3,687 yards, 21 touchdowns and 13 interceptions on 315 of 523 passing, good for a 60.2% completion percentage. He finally had his breakout season in 2016, playing in all 16 contests and snaring 63 balls for 851 yards and three touchdowns. The Bills secondary will go up against a receiving core led by Keelan Cole who has been reliable for the Jags. Cole took advantage of the loss of Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns.
That means a lot of Leonard Fournette and the Jaguars rushing attack. "Please don't tell me any more about it".More news: When will PlayerUnknown's BattleGrounds come to PS4?

Ranking in the bottom eight of the league in both total offense and total defense, the Bills would have to consider themselves lucky to have made the postseason this year. With a fully healthy McCoy the Bills could have matched that strategy, especially since the only real weakness of the Jags defense is against the run, but the 20-30 successful carries needed just does not seem realistic. That does not bode well for the young guns of Tyrod Taylor, LeSean McCoy, and company heading down to Jacksonville.
Buffalo won three of their last four games and thanks to an historic choke job performance from the Baltimore Ravens, get to go to the playoffs.
Buffalo's last road win in the month of January came on January 2, 1994. 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 were thought to be tanking this season as they unloaded a ton of their high-level talent, including trading Marcell Dareus [VIDEO] to the Jaguars in the middle of the season.
The Bills are a good story and it's remarkable that they made it into the postseason, but they're entering a matchup where the Jaguars have the advantage in nearly every aspect. Get your 100% signup bonus today.
