Keep your eye on ...
Jaguars WR Jerry Porter: Porter began practicing last week after missing all of training camp following hamstring surgery. Coach Jack Del Rio held Porter out vs. Tennessee but will likely have a hard time keeping the veteran receiver off the field against Buffalo.
David Garrard: Garrard turned the ball over three times against Tennessee (two interceptions, one fumble). The last time he had that many turnovers was also against the Titans, on Dec. 17, 2006, when he threw three interceptions and lost a fumble. It will be interesting to see how Garrard responds vs. Buffalo, a team in which he has a 104.3 rating against in two meetings. Garrard will also have a makeshift line to work with after starting guards Vince Manuwai and Maurice Williams went down in the opener. Manuwai is lost for the season.
Buffallo's run defense: The Jaguars will look to establish their ground game after struggling against a stingy Titans defense. The Bills held Seattle to just 85 yards on the ground with solid defense from newcomers LB Kawika Mitchell and former Jaguars DT Marcus Stroud as well as second-year LB Paul Posluszny. It will be tested against the ususally potent tandem of Fred Taylor and Maurice Jones-Drew.
Buffalo's special teams: The Bills recorded two special-teams scores against Seattle -- the first on a 63-yard punt return by Roscoe Parrish, the second on a fake field goal in which holder Brian Moorman threw a 19-yard TD pass to DE Ryan Denney. In addition to Parrish, the Bills have Terrence McGee and rookie CB Leodis McKelvin, giving them three dangerous return threats.
