The Buffalo Football Report Week 7 Preview: Buffalo Bills vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

The banged up Buffalo Bills will look to enter their bye week at 4-3.

Buffalo Bills (3-3) at Jacksonville Jaguars (1-5) in London

KICKOFF: 9:30 a.m. EST

LAST REGULAR-SEASON GAME: 12/15/13 – Bills 27, Jaguars 20. EJ Manuel threw the game-winning one yard touchdown pass to FB Frank Summers in the 4th quarter.

REFEREE: Terry McAulay

JAGUARS NOTES: Blake Bortles has attempted (44) and completed (16) more long passes than any other quarterback in the NFL… Jacksonville has not scored a rushing touchdown this season… The Jaguars average 3.2 yards per carry on the ground… Former Bills head coach left Buffalo and eventually landed in Jacksonville (as the team’s offensive line coach)… Jacksonville is banged up at wide receiver with Marqise Lee, Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns all dealing with injuries… Former Bills LB Paul Posluszny is the only Jaguars player to have an interception this season. Jacksonville’s defense allows 29.3 PPG, good for 30th in the NFL

BILLS NOTES: EJ Manuel will get his second consecutive start on Sunday… LeSean McCoy will look to gain 100 yards on the ground for the first time this season with Buffalo… Jacksonville allows 101.7 yards on the ground… Buffalo will be without Sammy Watkins and Percy Harvin, leaving Robert Woods, Chris Hogan, Denarius Moore and possibly Marcus Easley at receiver… Charles Clay is currently second among all NFL tight ends in receptions (31)… Stephon Gilmore and Ronald Darby are No. 1 and 2 in the NFL respectively in passes defensed.
