Bills Lead Jaguars 27 to 10 At End Of Third

Matt Warren is Associate Director of NFL coverage for SB Nation and previously covered the Bills for Buffalo Rumblings for more than a decade.

The Buffalo Bills scored 10 points in the final two minutes of the first half and had the benefit of getting the ball back at halftime. They responded by marching down the field aided by a roughing the passer penalty on a crucial third down to score another touchdown.

Ryan Fitzpatrick found Stevie Johnson two plays after planted by defensive end Jason Babin. Babin left his feet, propelling himself into Fitzpatrick's chest and was flagged. Fred Jackson and Brad Smith both had key runs on the drive that put Buffalo up 24-10.

The Jaguars were able to move the ball on their next possession but couldn't complete a fourth down pass inside Buffalo's 40-yard line. The Bills took the nice field position and ran Fred Jackson over and over again setting up a 50-yard field goal by Rian Lindell. You read that right - Chan Gailey attempted a 50-yard field goal - and now the Bills lead 27-10.

The Bills have lost the services of Leodis McKelvin, Stevie Johnson, and Chris Hairston to injuries. The Bills have the ball at the start of the fourth quarter and look to put this game away with another long scoring drive.
