Urban Meyer may have saved his job — for now.

The Jacksonville Jaguars pulled off the sixth-biggest upset in the last 30 years with a 9-6 win over the Buffalo Bills.

The Jaguars had been 16-point home underdogs amid yet another season from hell.

Meyer ditched his team to hit a bar and get caught on video grinding with a girl that wasn't his wife. Trevor Lawrence looks incredibly raw — and has more interceptions than he has touchdowns. The defense had been been ranked last in the NFL according to DVOA heading into Week 9.

By all accounts, this is one of the worst teams in the NFL.

And yet, that last-ranked defense held the high-flying Bills to just six points on Sunday and deflated an otherwise hopeful year for Buffalo.

The Jaguars' Josh Allen was the game's MVP, having sacked, intercepted and recovered a fumble from the Bills' Josh Allen to help buoy lowly Jacksonville.

(A quick aside to note that it was the first time in history a defensive player has sacked, intercepted or recovered a fumble from a quarterback with the same name.)

The Bills had been the Super Bowl favorites heading into Week 9. Meanwhile, Josh Allen had been the +250 favorite to win NFL MVP.

Expect those odds to lengthen by the morning.
