The Jacksonville Jaguars (10-6) will host the Buffalo Bills (9-7) at 1:05pm ET today, with the game airing on CBS. These two teams have met in the postseason before, you’d have to go back to 1996, which was the first (and only) time these two teams have met in the playoffs. The Jaguars secured victory (30-27) that day.

The Bills head into Jacksonville on Sunday more than a touchdown (+8) underdog. Not unlike the Rams, the Bills are also playing their first postseason game in what feels like an eternity — ending a 17 year drought, dating back to 1999.
They’ll take on one of the toughest defenses in the NFL. The Jaguars lead the league with seven defensive touchdowns, and rank 2nd in both sacks (55) and INT’s (21).
The good news is that LeSean McCoy is active for today’s game. It’s hard to fathom any way the Bills could’ve gotten the job done with their best player on the sideline...save for maybe forcing Blake Bortles to throw the football. That would also be a good thing.
The Pittsburgh Steelers await the winner of today’s game.
