The Buffalo Bills returned to the NFL playoffs Sunday, January 7th against the Jacksonville Jaguars for the conference wildcard round. Buffalo fell 10-3 at EverBank Field as the Bills were eliminated in the first round of the AFC playoffs. Oil City and Notre Dame grad Ben Koyack scored the game’s lone touchdown late in the third quarter on a one-yard pass from Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles. The Jacksonville tight end scored no a fourth and goal play that proved to be the difference in a tight ball game.
Bills running back LeSean McCoy entered the game at less than 100 percent after suffering an injury last week in Miami. In addition, Buffalo quarterback Tyrod Taylor and defensive back Micah Hyde left the game due to injuries.
The Bills finished 9-8 and will own the 21st and 22nd overall picks in the 2018 NFL Draft. Buffalo owns the 21st pick based on its finish along with Kansas City’s pick (#22) as a result of a trade.
