What's encouraging is Watkins didn't experience any familiar discomfort in the surgically repaired left foot that forced him to the sidelines in the first place. It led to a huge return for Bills wide receiver Brandon Tate.
The Jacksonville Jaguars may be the biggest disappointment in the National Football League this year at 2-8, after a huge offseason spending spree in free agency and the addition of special rookie prospects, Jalen Ramsey and Myles Jack. With depth at WR being very weak, I think that utilizing Charles Clay and Nick O'Leary more would be a smart idea. While trying to make a tackle in the first quarter, Buffalo Bills cornerback Ronald Darby was injured. Like I said earlier, the only way I see them getting any big plays through the air is with play action. "As much as we want him, obviously he's a difference-maker when he's out, there so I get it". McCoy sustained a thumb injury that required surgery the same night of the game, and the hope was that he'd be able to play against Jacksonville.

JAGUARS broke string of 5 games without a takeaway with a pair of FRs in Week 11 loss, but they were able to score only 3 points off those takeaways. And they did so by blowing a fourth-quarter lead for the third time this season. If the Bills don't have a 100 yard rusher in tomorrow's game, I don't think their chances of winning are very good.
Leave no doubt from the outset that the better team is playing at home.
His two touchdowns came 33 seconds apart spanning halftime.
After putting together a masterful first quarter, the Jaguars were welcomed back to reality on Sunday in Buffalo. The extra point kick was missed.
"You can just hear the crowd yelling", McCoy said, recalling his 75-yard touchdown run on the first play from scrimmage in the second half. Running back Chris Ivory was the Jaguars' leading performer, running for a total of 114 yards, leading the line on both passing and rushing.
Dareus developed what Rex Ryan described as an "abdominal issue" and wasn't on the field for the Jaguars' final two possessions. Jaguars have lost five straight.
Having snapped a three-game skid with a 16-12 win at Cincinnati last weekend, the Bills have little room for error in their quest to end a 16-year playoff drought the NFL's longest active streak.
T.J. Yeldon, who did not practice during the week because of an ankle injury, replaced Ivory in the Jacksonville backfield.
