After the Jaguars took a 21-20 lead on the first play of the fourth quarter Sunday, the Bills offense responded with an eight-play scoring drive that was the difference in their 28-21 victory.
The win improved the Bills' record to 3-8 when they've been tied or within one possession in the fourth quarter with Tyrod Taylor at quarterback. It was the Bills' first such comeback win of the season.
Taylor's overall numbers in these situations aren't great, but Sunday was one of his better statistical performances. He completed three of his four passes for 49 yards, including a nicely thrown 16-yard touchdown to Justin Hunter in the front corner of the end zone.
Taylor had to escape pressure and dump the ball off to LeSean McCoy on the first passing play of the drive, but McCoy made safety Johnathan Cyprien miss and gained 25 yards. Taylor was intercepted later, but there was obvious pass interference on intended receiver Sammy Watkins that gave the Bills 18 yards. (Heck of a play by Tashaun Gipson to make the pick, though.)
Then after two running plays and an 8-yard pass to Marquise Goodwin, Taylor hit Hunter for the go-ahead touchdown.
Tyrod Taylor. Justin Hunter.

The Bills went three-and-out on their first drive with the lead, but were able to pick up two first downs on their second possession to run out the final 3:25 of game clock.
