Mack has best-ever day

The following are notes from the Jaguars' 13-6 win over the Tennessee Titans today at Alltel Stadium:

• Stacey Mack, who replaced Fred Taylor at running back when Taylor suffered a groin injury early in the second quarter, rushed for a career-high 80 yards on 18 rushing attempts. Mack's previous high was 74 yards rushing in last year's season-opener in Cleveland. His 22-yard touchdown run today is the longest run of his three-year career and his second NFL touchdown.

• The Jaguars haven't allowed a touchdown in two consecutive games, marking only the second time in team history it has accomplished that feat. The Jaguars held the Steelers and Jets touchdown-less in consecutive games in 1999.

• Defensive end Renaldo Wynn's two sacks today are a career, single-game high. He had 1.5 sacks at Baltimore in week two of last season.

• The Titans were just one-of-14 in third-down conversions. That seven percent conversion rate is the second-best by a Jaguars defense. Cleveland was none-for-12 on Dec. 3, 2000.

• Keenan McCardell has made at least one pass reception in 35 consecutive games.

• Mark Brunell's streak of games having thrown a touchdown pass was halted at 10.

• Jimmy Smith owns the Jaguars all-time games-played record, 97.

• Tom Coughlin couldn't resist when a reporter asked if the coach missed the replacement officials. "Twice we should've had fumbles, yeah. I know you guys are back from some time off, but we've been playing," Coughlin said.

• The Titans lost wide receiver Derrick Mason to an ankle injury in the first quarter, and coach Jeff Fisher said Mason was the team's most major injury concern.

• Fisher came onto the field to check on Fred Taylor's condition following his groin injury in the second quarter.
