Alex Carrington records first career tackle in Bills loss Sunday

Orchard Park, NY (KAIT) - It took four weeks for ASU alum Alex Carrington to make his NFL debut. It took seven more days for the third-round pick to make his first career tackle.

At the 6:59 mark in the second quarter, Carrington brought down Maurice Jones-Drew for his first appearance in a Bills box score.

But his effort on the Buffalo defense wasn't enough as Jacksonville won 36-26. Tight end Marcedes Lewis caught two touchdowns passes in the victory. David Garrard shook off an interception and a lost fumble to throw for three touchdowns as the Jaguars (3-2) snapped a four-game road skid. Mike Sims-Walker's 7-yard touchdown put the Jaguars ahead for good, 27-20 lead late in the third quarter.

Lewis scored on 1- and 27-yard receptions to give him five TDs on the season, breaking the Jaguars' franchise record for scores by a tight end. Josh Scobee made all five field-goal attempts.

The Bills squandered 10-0 and 13-3 leads, and are 0-5 for only the fourth time in franchise history, the first since 1985. Buffalo has allowed 30 points in four straight games for the first time.
