Mack saved himself $2,500

The following are notes from the Jaguars' 30-13 win over the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday.

• Stacey Mack appeared to be in the process of tossing the football into the end zone seats following his one-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. Fortunately for Mack, his toss was just a few feet short of making it into the stands, as the ball bounced off the top of the end zone wall. "I changed my mind. I thought about that $2,500 (fine)," said Mack, who incurred that fine following a touchdown dunk into the PSINet Stadium end zone in Baltimore two weeks previous.

• The Jaguars honored 16 New York City firemen in a pregame ceremony. The firemen were presented at midfield, where they received a standing ovation from the fans and a visit from Jaguars players who exchanged handshakes and well-wishes in an emotional scene that most notably involved coach Tom Coughlin, whose oldest son was safely evacuated from one of the two fallen World Trade Center towers.

• Tony Brackens' tackle of quarterback Jon Kitna for a safety was the Jaguars' first safety since Oct. 3, 1999 in Pittsburgh, when Joel Smeenge scored the two-pointer.

• The Jaguars scored on three consecutive possessions for the second time this season. Previously, they had done the same in the second quarter against Pittsburgh in week one.

• Thirty points is the most by the Jaguars this season.

• Keenan McCardell has made at least one pass reception in 41 consecutive games, the second-longest such streak in team history. Jimmy Smith ran his consecutive-games-with-a-catch record to 80 before it ended in last year's regular-season finale.

• Gary Walker has had a sack in four consecutive games, which ties Brackens and Kevin Hardy for a team record.

• Sean Dawkins' four receptions are a single-game high for him this season.
