The Jaguars took the lead with a 15-play drive covering 86 yards in 8:52.

The Pittsburgh Steelers will play the Jacksonville Jaguars in their first playoff game next Sunday.

The Jaguars tied the game after taking over at their own 47 yard line with 40 seconds remaining in the half. McCoy rushed for 1,138 yards and six scores on the season, helping Buffalo to a shocking postseason berth with a 9-7 record.

Taylor will face a Jacksonville team that sacked opposing quarterbacks on 9.3 percent of dropbacks, which was also the second-highest rate in the league.

The Bills had the ball for 20:09 in the first half. Bortles scrambled twice for first downs to get within field goal range for Josh Lambo, who connected from 44 yards with 2 seconds left. Facing a strong Bills secondary, perhaps the best formula for a Jaguars victory will be a heavy dose of Leonard Fournette, although his performances have been rather uneven as of late.

As for the Jaguars, Sunday's playoff appearance is the first since 2007.

Kickoff is scheduled for 1:05 p.m. ET and will be broadcast nationally on CBS.

The Tennessee Titans might be the least convincing outfit of any team to make the postseason in 2017, and look to be out of their depth facing a resurgent Kansas City team that has rebounded after a poor middle stretch during the season.

Bortles was 12 of 23 for just 87 yards passing, but had 88 years on the ground for the Jaguars, who finished the regular season at 10-6 and were hosting their first home playoff game since January 2008.

Andy Dalton's touchdown pass to Tyler Boyd to beat Baltimore meant the Bills edged into the final wild card spot instead of the Ravens.

The nightcap features the fourth-seeded New Orleans Saints (11-5) and the No. 5 seed Carolina Panthers (11-5) at the Superdome.
