Opening drive best in two years

The following are notes from the Jaguars' 15-10 win in Cleveland Sunday:

• A 15-play touchdown drive that covered 67 yards and used the first eight minutes and 48 seconds of the game is arguably the Jaguars' best offensive series of the season.

• That drive marked the first time the Jaguars had scored a touchdown in their first offensive series of a game since Nov. 21, 1999.

• Cornerback Jason Craft made his first career interception to halt the Browns' first offensive series.

• Mike Hollis missed an extra-point attempt for the first time since 1995. That miss was in Cleveland, too.

• Punt-returner Damon Gibson has gained 60 yards in fair-catch-interference penalties against opponents in the Jaguars' last three games.

• Even though the temperature was in the mid-40s, Browns quarterback Tim Couch wore a glove on his left hand.

• Linebacker Joe Wesley, who has been on and off the Jaguars' roster all season, made a big hit in punt coverage in the first half, hitting punt-returner Dennis Northcutt flush and causing a fumble rookie Eric Westmoreland recovered.

• Jaguars wide receiver Jimmy Smith reached the 8,000-yard mark in receiving yards in his 115th game. He became the 49th player in NFL history to reach 8,000 receiving yards and he is the eighth-quickest to reach that mark.

• Keenan McCardell has made at least one pass reception in 46 consecutive games. Smith holds the Jaguars record at 80 games.

• Stacey Mack's 115 yards rushing are a personal high. His previous best was 93 yards against Cleveland earlier this season.

• Browns rookie cornerback Anthony Henry made two interceptions and has nine this season. His 97-yard return of an interception for a touchdown ties a Browns record.

• Browns linebacker Jamir Miller's three sacks are a personal best.

• Browns kicker Phillip Dawson has converted 17 of his last 18 field-goal attempts; 13 straight.
