Brackens, Walker notch gunbelts

The following are notes from the Jaguars' 33-3 win in Minnesota Sunday.

• Tony Brackens recorded the fifth multi-sack game of his career and his second this year; Gary Walker's two sacks made for the four multi-sack game of his career.

• Mike Hollis' 15 points are the fifth-best of his career and Sunday's win marked the sixth time in his career Hollis was four-for-four in field goal attempts.

• The Jaguars scored their most points, first downs, total yards, rushing yards and rushing, and fewest pass attempts, since their win over Arizona on 12-10-00. The Jaguars scored on their first four possessions for the first time since that 44-10 win over Arizona.

• For the second consecutive week, the Jaguars came out on the fortunate side of the officiating. On the second play of the game, Jimmy Smith appeared to fumble at the end of an 18-yard pass-and-run play, but the official ruling was that Smith was "down by contact," nullifying the Vikings' intent to "challenge" the call. Replay clearly showed Smith had lost control of the ball before his knee touched the ground.

• AFC Central standings--Pittsburgh, 12-2, is the AFC Central champ and needs only a win at Cincinnati next Sunday to clinch the top seed for the AFC playoffs. Baltimore is second in the division with a 9-5 record. Tennessee is in third place with a 7-7 record, while Jacksonville and Cleveland are tied for fourth at 6-8 each, and Cincinnati is 4-10 following its seventh consecutive loss.
