Bills vs. Jaguars 2013: Second half game thread

Phil Sears-USA TODAY Sports

Join the BCC community to discuss the second half of a Week 15 game between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Buffalo Bills at EverBank Field.

The bend-don't-break of the defense of the Jaguars had a strong start, but devolved into a very breakable unit late in the first half, allowing 17 unanswered points to give the Buffalo Bills a 20-10 lead at halftime.

Without Maurice Jones-Drew and Cecil Shorts III on offense, the Jaguars struggled to do much offensively with the exception of a 10-play, 56-yard drive that ended with Ace Sanders' first career receiving touchdown from 12 yards out. Outside of that drive, Chad Henne struggled to find open receivers and was sacked three times in the first two quarters.

The Jaguars threatened to score with a late drive before halftime, but it came to an end with a fumble by wide receiver Mike Brown with 26 seconds remaining in the second quarter. The Bills hit a 40-yard field goal just before half to extend their lead.

Buffalo's offense wasn't any better in the first quarter, as rookie quarterback E.J. Manuel struggled with accuracy issues and errant throws, including an interception thrown to linebacker Geno Hayes that set the Jaguars up for a field goal from Josh Scobee. However, they finished the half with 94- and 72-yard drives.

The Bills will receive the kickoff to begin the second half.
