Jaguars 34, Bills 31

Long trip, quick rally for Jaguars

LONDON — Jacksonville's defense came up big in the first half, and quarterback Blake Bortles came through late.

Seven seconds of defensive excellence gave the Jaguars a big lead they eventually squandered, but Bortles threw a 31-yard touchdown to Allen Hurns with 2:16 left as the Jaguars rallied to beat the Bills at Wembley Stadium.

Buffalo safety Corey Graham intercepted a pass and returned it 44 yards to put the Bills ahead in a seesaw game that was streamed live on Yahoo's website.

"To be able to stay calm and to have a big lead and give it up and be able to come back and score to win the game is huge," said Bortles, a former UCF standout. "I think it speaks to the personality of this team, and it's cool to be a part of."

EJ Manuel started at quarterback for Buffalo for the injured Tyrod Taylor. "It was bad football," said Manuel, 6-10 as an NFL starter.
