Bills Hold On In Jacksonville
EJ Manuel’s second touchdown pass of the game, a one-yard pass to fullback Frank Summers with 9 1/2 minutes left to play, was good enough for the Buffalo Bills to squeak out a 27-20 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars, giving the Bills their first win in a month.
The Bills built a 10-point lead at halftime, only to see the Jaguars come back to tie it with a field goal and a touchdown on back-to-back possessions in the second half. Then, after the Bills took the lead again, the Jaguars went on a long drive, only to see it end on a Stephon Gilmour interception in the end zone.
The Bills defense finished with two interceptions, two fumble recoveries and five sacks.
After a rough start, Manuel finished 17 of 24 for 193 yards and two touchdowns. He was also intercepted once.
The Bills improve to 5-9. They host the Miami Dolphins next Sunday.
