Wildcard Weekend: What You Need To Know

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. —All eyes are on the Buffalo Bills as they get ready to make their first playoff appearance this century. Here’s what you need to know.

Today’s opponent, the 10-6 Jacksonville Jaguars are playing their first postseason game since 2007 and are hosting their first playoff since 1999.

Jaguars Head coach Doug Marrone was the Buffalo’s coach for two seasons in 2013-14 but chose to opt out of his contract when Terry Pegula took over as the owner team.

Defensive Tackle Marcell Dareus was traded to Jacksonville in October. He admitted to reporters this week that he celebrated the Bills making the playoffs.

By the numbers: 

The Jaguars had the second-ranked overall defense in the league, with a ferocious pass rush that produced a franchise-record 55 sacks.

Bills 14-15 in 29 playoff games.
