Hollis good at crunch time

The following are notes from the Jaguars' 16-13 win over the Tennessee Titans at Alltel Stadium Sunday.

• Mike Hollis' 28-yard field goal as time expired is the fourth game-winning kick of his career. His previous game-winning kick was against Denver on Dec. 13, 1999.

• The win snapped the Titans' five-game winning streak against the Jaguars and tied the all-time series between the two teams at 6-6.

• Jimmy Smith has made at least one catch in 83 consecutive games, the seventh-longest streak among NFL active players.

• Fred Taylor's 104 yards rushing is his sixth straight and the 15th of his career, both of which are Jaguars records.

• R. Jay Soward's 45-yard reception is the longest of his rookie season.

• Titans cornerback Samari Rolle has six career interceptions against the Jaguars.

• Tennessee running back Eddie George had a career-high 109 yards receiving. George surpassed 1,000 yards rushing in a season for the fifth consecutive year, which makes him only the fifth player in NFL history to accomplish that feat. The others are Eric Dickerson, Tony Dorsett, Curtis Martin and Barry Sanders.

• The Jaguars maintain the Titans are more than a physical team. "Tennessee has always been known as a physical team. We call them a dirty team because they do a lot of things after the play," Smith said.

• Jacksonville has won consecutive games for the first time this season, and has won three of its last four games.

• Titans kicker Al Del Greco has missed several critical kicks this year, and his miss from 28 yards out with about three minutes to play and the game tied was a major blow to the Titans' cause. "I'm tired of apologizing but I feel like I should do that. There's a lot of guys in there who played a helluva football game and there's a lot of people back in Tennessee who have been good to me and stood by me and I let them down again," Del Greco said.

• Jaguars defensive tackle Gary Walker began his career with the Houston Oilers who, of course, became the Titans. "I have a lot of respect for that organization over there and it was hard for me to leave. I'm not going to sit here and throw sticks like they did to us," Walker said.

• Coach Tom Coughlin announced what the game meant to him. "We won the battle of Alltel," Coughlin said in greeting reporters in his postgame press conference. Of course, Titans coach Jeff Fisher had snidely referred to Alltel Stadium as one of his team's home stadiums.
