RTC: Mistakes doom Jaguars
By Michael DiRocco
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jaguars missed tackles, gave up a ton of rushing yards and turned the ball over four times. But as poorly as they played during Sunday's 27-20 loss to Buffalo at EverBank Field, it wasn't reminiscent of the first eight games of the season.
The Jaguars had a chance to beat the Bills -- and they should have beaten the Bills -- but made too many mistakes and had their winning streak stopped at three games, writes Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union.
"It was a game of missed opportunities," coach Gus Bradley said. "We had some opportunities in the game to capture and we didn't play like we're capable of playing."
The Jaguars were down four starters and one key reserve by halftime, but that's not an excuse for throwing two interceptions, fumbling the ball through the end zone and giving up 198 yards rushing.

Running back Jordan Todman, subbing for the injured Maurice Jones-Drew, played a solid game and ran for 109 yards in his first career start, writes the T-U's Vito Stellino.
