McCoy's availability will be key for the Bills, who are in the playoffs for the first time in 17 years.
The Buffalo Bills are in the playoffs for the first time this decade and begin their quest for their first postseason victory in over two decades when they take on the Jacksonville Jaguars in the AFC Wild Card Game.
It's not a Bills game unless tables are being broken.
Last night, media reports in Buffalo described "a sea of red white and blue" on the streets of Jacksonville and one bar owner told WKBW that "they have never seen this many fans representing an away team".More news: Sears/Kmart to close 100 stores, including one locally
After all, this team hasn't played a postseason game since January 8, 2000.
Without McCoy, the Bills would have been forced to throw the ball more, something they don't want to do with Tyrod Taylor.
The final quarter failed to bring much excitement for fans and any chance of a late Bills score was denied when Taylor was picked off by Jalen Ramsey with 32 seconds left on the clock as Jacksonville held on for their place in the Divisional Round.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Saturday evening that McCoy, who is listed as questionable for the game, is likely to play.
The Jaguars are nine-point favorites, and the game is being given a minuscule over/under of 39 points.
