Former Oviedo High and UCF standout Blake Bortles (No. 5, top) was 12-for-23 for 87-yards and a touchdown and carried the ball 10 times for 88-yards as the Jacksonville Jaguars claimed a 10-3 victory over the Buffalo Bills in AFC Wild Card playoff game front of 69,442 at EverBank Field Sunday afternoon in their first postseason game in a decade, and their first home postseason game in 18 years. The AFC South Champion Jaguars (11-6) will visit the AFC North Champion Pittsburgh Steelers (13-3) at Heinz Field in an AFC Divisional Playoff Sunday at 1 p.m. The Jaguars beat the Steelers, 30-9, in Pittsburgh in Week 5. Meanwhile, the unbeaten UCF football team (above) was honored with a parade at Walt Disney World on Sunday, a Block Party in Downtown Orlando on Monday and on Tuesday was ranked No. 6 and received four first place votes in the final AP Football Poll behind Alabama, Georgia, Oklahoma, Clemson and Ohio State.
