Giving extra effort proved to be worthwhile for one Florida team on Sunday. For another, it merely extended the expected.
Both the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Jacksonville Jaguars played into overtime in Week 11.
The Bucs rallied from an 11-point deficit with less than five minutes left in regulation to force overtime and escape with a 27-21 win at Carolina.
The Jaguars, meanwhile, blew a two-touchdown fourth-quarter lead and lost at Houston and lost 43-37. It was Jacksonvilles seventh straight defeat.
Floridas other NFL entry, the Miami Dolphins, lost 19-14 at Buffalo on Thursday night.
Heres a more in-depth look at Week 11 for the Florida teams:
Week in review
Bills 19, Dolphins 14: The Dolphins were hoping a short week would help them clear the stench that came from being routed at home by Tennessee. A victory against division rival Buffalo would keep postseason talk alive but it wasnt to be.
Miami (4-6) suffered a third consecutive loss and the offense sputtered again.
