Bortles ready to pay the Bills

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles says he is hoping it will be third time lucky for his team as they aim to break their Wembley duck this weekend.

The Jaguars have played twice previously in London losing both times, and after a difficult start to the season in which they have only picked up one victory the 2014 third overall draft pick says that his team are fired up to right their wrongs this Sunday.

"We've done some good stuff. We definitely have to improve on things but it's definitely an improvement on last year. The guys have got better each and every week," said Bortles.

The Bills defense are renowned for targeting the opposing quarterback and Bortles expects a physical afternoon on the hallowed turf of Wembley.

"Hearing from their guys and what they want to do, it's definitely reasonable to expect some more pressure. It's something they do really well. They do a lot of different things to try to confuse you. We will go in expecting anything, and adjust as it goes."

Buffalo's first choice quarterback Tyrod Taylor has been ruled out of the game through injury, which means a second straight start for EJ Manuel, and Bortles says that will not change the Jaguars' gameplan.

"I think we will approach it the same way," he said. "EJ will play for them and he's a good quarterback.

"We are going to approach it the same way offensively and as a team we are going to do the same thing. This is an opportunity to get back on track this season."
