The Buffalo Bills won a hard-fought game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday.
Yes, a hard-fought victory, in an atmosphere that has less of a home-field advantage for the home team than Toronto has had for Buffalo, against one of the worst teams in the league. That is what the Bills accomplished this week.
Buffalo forced four turnovers and EJ Manuel accounted for three touchdowns (2 passing, 1 rushing). Yet, the game came down to the end. This is a game Buffalo should have run away with. A game they should have won, maybe not easily, but convincingly. The Bills were down 10-3 at one point and also allowed a 10-point lead to evaporate before scoring the game-winning touchdown.
The win for the Bills doesn't do anything as far as playoffs are concerned, and probably doesn't do much for their confidence, because they beat the lowly Jaguars by seven points. The win also ensures they will get a lower draft pick than Jacksonville come April.
So what did Buffalo accomplish? Probably not a whole lot, with the exception maybe being that Manuel built a little confidence with a decent outing after being trampled by Tampa Bay. Still, the Bills will need to finish the season with back-to-back division games. Winning one, or both of those games would be something to build on next season. However, a win against Jacksonville deserves nothing more than a yawn and maybe a soft clap.
