Even though the Jacksonville Jaguars are without running back James Robinson, they were able to move the ball in their first drive. It wasn’t pretty but they manage to score a field goal.
Things weren’t looking good for the Jaguars early in their Week 9 matchup against the Buffalo Bills. However, they got a big break early in the game. Even if they couldn’t ultimately come out of the drive with seven points, they show they’re ready to give the Bills everything they got.
The Jags were off to a frustrating start. Wide receiver Laviska Shenualt Jr. was flagged for taunting, which cost the offense15 yards. Later in the drive, it looked like wide receiver Tavon Austin was going to get penalized for unnecessary roughness. Nobody would have blamed you if you tuned out after that but things quickly took a posite turn.
Head coach Urban Meyer was seen on the sidelines screaming and rightfully so. Austin wasn’t the one that was at fault. In the end, the Jaguars caught a break and the referees flagged Bills cornerback Tre’Davious White. The Jags took advantage of the break and a few plays later kicker Matthew Wright made a 39-field goal, which gave the Jags a 3-0 lead.

The Bills scored in the following drive but they only managed three points. Credit to Jaguars defensive coordinator Joe Cuellen, as his unit Buffalo move the ball during their first drive but stopped them when it mattered the most and limited to a field goal.
As of this writing the Jags and the Bills are tied 3-3. Jacksonville will need to contain quaterback Josh Allen if they want to slow Buffalo’s offense down. Also, Trevor Lawrence has to extend drives and get the ball to his playmakers. He was sacked on third-and-11 in the Jags’ second drive of the game and the offense was forced to punt. He arguably had his worst game of the season against the Seahawks. Today is his chance to bounce back. Stay tuned for more updates.
