Prior to this year, the Bills hadn’t made the playoffs since 1999. One would think they’re pretty fired up about this opportunity. Jacksonville hasn’t exactly had a lot of recent post-season success, either. Both teams should be hungry.
The Jags enter this game as strong nine-point favorites. That seems like a lot for a team with Blake Bortles starting at quarterback, but Jacksonville’s defense is really good. The Bills will hope that LeSean McCoy, who is dealing with an injury, can be effective enough to help them in this tilt.
Philadelphia Eagles fans should root for the Bills to win this game, and not just because Buffalo is “Eagles North.” The Bills are the worse team so it’d be better to see them advance in the post-season, although they’ll likely just end up being eliminated by the Patriots anyway.
Here is all the information you need to know in order to watch today’s game.
