The Panthers-Saints victor will play at Minnesota next week.

The third-seeded Jaguars (10-6) won the AFC South and earned their first home playoff game since January 2008.

Jacksonville's longest drive in its postseason history gave it a 10-3 lead over Buffalo after three quarters in an AFC wild-card game that it kept in the fourth quarter.

A drab first quarter finished scoreless and the second quarter almost followed suit as both sides started nervously before a fantastic interception by Jaguars cornerback Aaron Colvin gave the match some spark.

The Jaguars' recorded seven first downs on the 86-yard drive, which ended with a 1-yard touchdown pass from Bortles to Ben Koyack with less than a minute left in the quarter.

Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor goes into this matchup having finished the regular season with only four interceptions, but he's up against one of the best defenses in the league. With 1:27 remaining, backup Nathan Peterman came on and ran for 4 yards to pick up a first down. All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey tipped and then intercepted Peterman's third pass, and the Jaguars ran out the clock.
