It took nearly 12 minutes of overtime, but the Buffalo Bills finally edged the Jacksonville Jaguars on Saturday night, 35-32.

Ryan Fitzpatrick was solid for the Bills, completing 11 of 12 passes for 165 yards and two touchdowns. Tyler Thigpen wasn't so solid, completing 12 of 28 passes for 101 yards, a touchdown and an interception, but did find Paul Hubbard in the end zone with time winding down to tie the game. Bruce Hall carried the ball seven times for 33 yards and a score. Steve Johnson led all receivers with four catches for 76 yards and a touchdown.
David Garrard struggled for the Jags, completing 11 of 21 passes for 106 yards. Blaine Gabbert completed six of 13 passes for 52 yards, a touchdown and an interception in relief. Brock Bolen rushed for a touchdown and DuJuan Harris caught a touchdown in the loss.
