The Jaguars will have receiver Marqise Lee back in the starting lineup after he missed the last two games with a sprained right ankle. "Last game, we gave up some rush lanes that were huge that allowed them to run the ball (and get) advantageous yards".

Drew Brees - who completed 23 of 33 for 376 yards - aired the ball out late in the first, with Ted Ginn Junior picking it up on the Panthers' 40 and sprinting into the corner for an 80-yard touchdown, with Brees also finding Josh Hill on a nine-yard pass in the second to put the Saints up 14-3.

"There's two different ways to look at it", Bortles said. "We have to do a good job there, but we have to do a good job for 60 minutes and in all areas if we want to minimize the way they run the ball and the ways they possess the ball and control the game and are in manageable third downs because of it".

If we are taking these reports at their word, it might not matter. The running game, that had been shut down to this point, finally found its mojo as QB Blake Bortles and running backs Leonard Fournette and Chris Ivory combined for 54 rushing yards out of the 86 total yards on the drive. His TD pass to backup tight end Ben Koyack late in the third quarter was his best throw of the game. The Jaguars, however, foolishly jumped offsides so Buffalo had first-and-goal at the 1. "But we never really got into a rhythm", Marrone said after the win.

Coughlin knows what it takes to get to the top.

Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor was knocked out of the game with 1:43 remaining in the fourth quarter when his head slammed to the turf while he was being tackled by Jaguars defensive end Dante Fowler. The Bills have a lot of work to do in the offseason, but they show promise with their young talent and the draft picks they hold for this years' National Football League draft.

WWE wants UFC star Rousey to jump from octagon to ring
"We caught up, had dinner and had some conversations, but we have nothing to announce at this time", he told the New York Post. But it's not that Rousey couldn't translate into pro wrestling - he told the cameraman that she'd do a good job in that area.

Taylor threw for just 134 yards and completed only 17 of 38 throws, failing to get anything going, and throwing a pick to Aaron Colvin to intercept. A few plays later, Peterman's pass was deflected and picked off by Jalen Ramsey. That's what we're about and that's what we're going to keep trying to do.

Taylor was also more effective with his legs (six carries, 25 yards), converting a pair of third-down tries by scrambling during the Bills' lone first-half scoring drive.

Also, coach Doug Marrone chose to start former Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus against his old team. Officials overturned the completion, saying Clay was out of bounds and setting up a third-and-10 play from the Jacksonville 48-yard line. In what should prove to be his final game in a Bills uniform, Taylor and the Buffalo offense came up short in a 10-3 loss to Jacksonville. Cornerback Tre'Davious White went to the locker room in the fourth to be treated for cramps.

"I'm surprised at how well they are stacking up against this Jacksonville team", Johnson said.

The Jaguars will play at second-seeded Pittsburgh next Sunday, a rematch from Week 5. Jacksonville defeated Pittsburgh 30-9 in October, a game in which Roethlisberger threw five interceptions.
