4. Buffalo Bills vs. Jacksonville Jaguars (2017 playoffs)

This was the first year for Sean McDermott as head coach and he was able to lead the team to the playoffs that season, which ended one of the longest playoff droughts in professional sports at 17 years. That year, the Bills needed some help and got it after beating the Miami Dolphins in the form of a long Andy Dalton touchdown pass to help the Bengals beat the Ravens.

The Buffalo Bills would have to travel for their Wild Card matchup and play the Jaguars in Jacksonville. It was a defensive struggle between the two teams as they entered halftime tied at three.

The score remained tied until just before the end of the third quarter when Blake Bortles would throw a touchdown pass to give the Jaguars a 10-3 lead. The Bills were in position late to tie the game and had the ball around midfield before Tyrod Taylor would be forced to leave the game due to a concussion.

Nathan Peterman would come into the game and throw an interception on his fourth pass attempt that would seal the victory for the Jaguars. While Buffalo didn’t win the game, the reason this game is memorable is that it finally put an end to the playoff drought.
