The NFL playoffs continue Sunday with a doubleheader starting in Jacksonville, Florida, where the Jaguars and Buffalo Bills ended lengthy postseason droughts to make a wild-card game. He was off most of the day, misfiring short and long, but made up for it with 88 yards rushing - becoming the second starting quarterback in the past 25 years to win a playoff game with more rushing yards than passing (87).

The Jaguars took the lead with a 15-play drive covering 86 yards in 8:52. The Bills got into the playoffs this season after the Baltimore Ravens lost on a last-minute touchdown pass to the Cincinnati Bengals. The pass fell incomplete, but Benjamin was called for offensive pass interference pushing Buffalo back to the Jacksonville 11 yard line.

Both AFC divisional playoff games will air on KDKA-TV.

Brian Gutekunst staying in Green Bay
He could join former Senior Personnel Analyst Alonzo Highsmith who joined John Dorsey's scouting staff in Cleveland last week. The bigger news what that means back in Green Bay.

And to think, all of this came after the Jaguars said the Bills didn't use all of the tickets they were allotted for the game. Bortles scrambled twice for first downs to get within field goal range for Josh Lambo, who connected from 44 yards with 2 seconds left. The first time these two teams played this season, the Steelers manhandled them 40-17. Nathan Peterman entered the game with 1:27 remaining.

The run game will likely decide this matchup, with the Bills' LeSean McCoy and the Jaguars' Leonard Fournette as the best players on the field for either offense.
