ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick directed five straight scoring drives in helping the Buffalo Bills keep alive their slim playoff hopes with a 34-18 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. Fitzpatrick threw two touchdown passes and scored on a 1-yard plunge in providing a spark to an injury-depleted offense that finished the game minus its top two receivers. Starter Stevie Johnson did not return after hurting his left hamstring in the third quarter, while Donald Jones was out due to a calf injury. Fred Jackson had 101 yards rushing and C.J. Spiller scored on a 44-yard run that put Buffalo (5-7) up 34-10 early in the fourth quarter. The Jaguars (2-10) were unable to carry over much momentum a week after snapping a seven-game skid with 24-19 win over Tennessee. Quarterback Chad Henne scored on a 1-yard run and also completed a 5-yard touchdown pass to Cecil Shorts III.
