Bills travel to Jacksonville

The Buffalo Bills make a long awaited return to the post-season on Sunday and travel down to the EverBank Field in Jacksonville to take on the Jaguars.

Running back LeSean McCoy seems likely to be the key for the visitors and their chances are dependent on the recovery from injury of the former Pittsburgh star who was carted off against the Miami Dolphins in the regular season finale.

McCoy's right ankle has responded to treatment, but it seems unlikely that the running back will be anywhere close to 100%.

Buffalo finished the campaign with a 9-7 record and got into the play-offs on the tiebreaker ahead of the Baltimore Ravens and the Los Angeles Chargers.

Only once all year did the Bills win by more than 10 points, a 34-14 victory over the Oakland Raiders, and the season included a three game stretch where they lost 34-21 to the New York Jets in East Rutherford NJ, 47-10 at home to the New Orleans Saints and a demoralizing 54-24 hammering on the road in LA to the Chargers.

And yet Buffalo, 1213.00 to win the AFC title, made it to the post-season and the match-up is a potentially winning one if the Bills can play to their talents. It's a big ask for a Buffalo side that is nowhere near rebuilt yet and obviously does not believe in quarterback Tyrod Taylor.

The former Virginia Tech star finished 25th in yards passing in the regular season, but hidden in some modest numbers is one crucial one; Taylor was intercepted just four times all year.

The Bills are 1213.00 to win this year's Super Bowl with the Jaguars 10.00 and the Minnesota Vikings priced at 3.20.
