Jacksonville and Buffalo are back in the playoffs, making for one of the best Wild Card weekend showdowns.
For the first time since 1999, the Jacksonville Jaguars will host a postseason game. That’s awfully coincidental because that marks the same year that the Buffalo Bills last suited up for a playoff contest. Amazingly, the Tennessee Titans were the opponent in each instance.
Now Jacksonville head coach Doug Marrone, once the Bills’ head coach for two seasons (2013-14), looks to lead his current employer to its first postseason victory since 2007 – which also happens to be the last time the Jaguars reached the playoffs. In other words, it’s long time, no see for each of the teams when it comes to the postseason. So where can you find this AFC Wild Card Game and how can you check it out?

The Jacksonville Jaguars closed the season with consecutive losses to the San Francisco 49ers (44-33) and Tennessee Titans (15-10). The Buffalo Bills were a 4-5 team after opening 2017 with a 5-2 record. It’s a bit of a surprise that Marrone’s team is a solid 9-point favorite in this matchup (via the staff at OddsShark). Then again, they are facing a club that allowed more points (359) than it scored. Add in the fact that the AFC South champs were 6-2 at home this season and the Bills won only three of their eight road contests and the line makes perfect sense.
