Blake Bortles connected with Ben Koyack in the final minutes of the third quarter, scoring the only touchdown of the game as the Jacksonville Jaguars knocked off the Buffalo Bills 10-3. With the loss, the Bills storybook season comes to an end, after ending their 17-year playoff drought seven days ago.
And with that, the #Bills 2017 season is over.

Glass half full: The #Bills managed to energize an entire community, ending their 17 season playoff drought. It was a disappointing end to a promising season.
Glass half empty: That was an extremely winnable game & the offense was a mess.
