Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Buffalo Bills: Gameday Information for Wild Card Game

JACKSONVILLE, FL - DECEMBER 17: Jaydon Mickens /

All the info, as the Jacksonville Jaguars face the Buffalo Bills in the wild card round of the NFL playoffs.

Only twelve teams remain in the hunt for the Lombardi Trophy, and the Jacksonville Jaguars find themselves among the elite company for the first time in a decade. The Jaguars will take on the Buffalo Bills in the 3 vs. 6 matchup in the AFC.

Jacksonville enter the playoffs at 10-6, and winners of the AFC South division crown. The Bills, with some help in the final week of the regular season, enter as the second wild card team at 9-7. The Jaguars are looking to hit the reset button after falling short in the final two games of the season, and recapture the magic that lead to winning seven-of-eight games before the slide.
