Brunell nearly doubles up Kitna rating

The following are notes from the Jaguars' 14-10 win in Cincinnati Sunday:

• Aaron Beasley's interception in the first half is his third of the season and the Jaguars' eighth, four shy of the team's all-time low for interceptions in a season, 12, recorded last year.

• Mark Brunell completed 23 of 32 passes for 242 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. That translated into a 101.3 passer rating. The Bengals' Jon Kitna was 16 of 30 for 147 yards, no touchdowns and one interception, worthy of a 53.1.

• Tom Coughlin challenged an official's incomplete ruling on a five-yard pass from Brunell to Jimmy Smith in the first half. Coughlin lost the challenge and, of course, a timeout. He could've used that timeout at the end of the half when, with 14 seconds remaining, Coughlin had no choice but to send Mike Hollis onto the field for a 44-yard field goal attempt; the Jaguars were out of times out. Hollis missed the kick when it struck the right upright.

• The Paul Brown Stadium public address announcer offered this witty announcement following a lengthy gathering of officials to discuss an offside penalty: "After an official summit," the PA man started.

• Jimmy Smith broke the 100-yard receiving mark for the fifth time this season and for the 34th time in his career.

• The Bengals' eight sacks are the most-ever allowed by the Jaguars, and are a single-game high in Bengals history.
