The Jacksonville Jaguars beat the Buffalo Bills, 10-3, on Sunday in an ugly game to advance to the AFC divisional game.
The end of the game was a hectic one, with Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey intercepting Bills backup quarterback Nathan Peterman in the final seconds to seal the game. The play came moments after Peterman had to check into the game for Tyrod Taylor after Taylor left the game with a scary head injury.
With 1:43 left to play, Taylor tried scrambling for a first down on third-and-5 and was tackled forcefully by Dante Fowler Jr., his head slamming against the ground.

Taylor was motionless on the field for several minutes before being helped to his feet and taken off the field.
That turned the game over to Peterman, whose brief time in the NFL has been an interesting ride. Peterman made a controversial Week 11 start when he replaced Taylor, surprising many. He struggled, throwing five interceptions against the Los Angeles Chargers before the Bills turned back to Taylor.
Peterman inspired brief hope for the Bills, getting two first downs before getting called for intentional grounding, then throwing the pick to Ramsey.

Even the pick was not without drama, as it was reviewed to see if it was a true catch. Although the ball appeared to shift in Ramsey’s arms as he hit the ground, the referees did not overturn it, sealing the game for the Jaguars.
The Jaguars take on the Pittsburgh Steelers next weekend.
