The wind chill is in the low 20s and there might be some snow in Orchard Park as the Buffalo Bills host the Baltimore Ravens for an AFC Divisional Round playoff game.

1st quarter

Baltimore received the ball first and began at its 25-yard line after a touchback. Running back Gus Edwards ran for 12 and 11 yards on back-to-back carries. Rookie running back J.K. Dobbins rushed for 9 yards and quarterback Lamar Jackson kept it for 5 yards and another first down. Buffalo linebacker A.J. Klein was flagged for offsides on fourth-and-1 to keep the drive alive but cornerback Levi Wallace sacked Jackson for a loss of 13 on the next play. Jackson dumped the ball over the middle to wide receiver Miles Boykin for 11 yards on third-and-19 and kicker Justin Tucker missed a 41-yard field goal, doinking off the left upright. 

Buffalo quarterback Josh Allen opened with a 13-yard completion to wide receiver Stefon Diggs. Two plays later, Allen checked down to wide receiver John Brown for 4 yards but threw a deep ball incomplete on third-and-6 and Corey Bojorquez punted to the Ravens' 10-yard line. 

Baltimore went three-and-out, with Jackson buying time and bouncing off his own lineman and tossing a pass that Dobbins dropped. Sam Koch shanked a punt that traveled just 23 yards to the Ravens' 38.

Allen hit Diggs near the left sideline for 16 yards on first down. Defensive tackle Justin Madubuike was called for roughing the passer but the Bills' drive stalled at the 10-yard line. Rookie Tyler Bass made a 28-yard field goal. Buffalo 3, Baltimore 0

Jackson picked up 3 yards on second down and only got back to the line of scrimmage on a designed run on third down. The Ravens committed a false start on fourth down and Koch punted to the Bills' 29.
