STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES – Jaguars assistant head coach Doug Marrone faces former team for second consecutive season since opting out of contract as Bills head coach following 2014 season. … Jaguars have lost five straight. … QB Blake Bortles is tied with Jets' Ryan Fitzpatrick in throwing NFL-high 13 interceptions. Bortles has been intercepted in eight of 10 games this season and 31 of 40 in three-year career. … Bortles needs 41 yards passing to reach 10,000 to set Jaguars mark and reach that plateau in fewest games. … Jaguars have NFL's fewest takeaways (seven) and most giveaways (22), but snapped five-game streak without takeaway by forcing two fumbles against Detroit. … WR Allen Robinson has TD catches in three straight games. … Bills seeking 6-5 record or better through 11 games for second time since 2009 and third since 2001. … Tyrod Taylor stands 31 yards rushing short of becoming third Bills QB and 26th player to reach 1,000 yards in career. … Trailing Bengals 12-10, Bills overcame halftime deficit for first time this season. … Buffalo has topped 20 first downs in three straight games. Bills haven't had four-game streak since doing it twice in 1998. … They snapped three-game streak without takeaway with two interceptions against Bengals. … Bills are tied with Seahawks for NFL lead with 31 sacks. … Fantasy Tip: Bills' defense worth taking against Bortles-led offense that has topped 24 points once this year and turned ball over in nine games, and Jacksonville team that's allowed three touchdown returns.
