Plenty of offense in loss to Seahawks

The following are notes from the Jaguars' 28-21 loss to the Seattle Seahawks today:

• Fred Taylor rushed for 100 yards for the fourth consecutive game and for the 13th time in his career in the regular season.

• Jimmy Smith and Keenan McCardell caught passes for 100 yards each in the same game for the eighth time in their careers, which broke the previous NFL record of seven held by the Jets' Don Maynard and George Sauer.

• Smith has had a catch in 81 consecutive games in which he has played, the seventh-longest streak of among active players.

• Ten receptions for 117 yards against the Seahawks is Smith's third 100-yard game of this season and the 13th regular-season 100-yard game in his career.

• McCardell caught six passes for 156 yards, giving him four 100-yard games this season and tying his previous single-season high of four in 1997. His 67-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter today equals the previous longest of his career, on Dec. 6, 1998, from Jamie Martin against Tennessee.

• Cornerback Aaron Beasley missed his first game since Nov. 23, 1997, snapping a streak of 45 consecutive games and 25 straight starts.

• For only the second time in Jaguars history, neither the Jaguars nor their opponent attempted a field goal. The only other time that occurred was on Oct. 27, 1996 at Cincinnati.

• The Jaguars have gone eight consecutive games without having scored a point in the third quarter.

• Seattle's 28 points raise the Jaguars' points-allowed total to 235 this season, which exceeds 1999's total of 217.

• Safety Donovin Darius was credited for a partial block of a Jeff Feagles punt late in the first half, even though Feagles' punt sailed 53 yards.

• Quarterback Mark Brunell is 44 of 58 for 571 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions in his last two games.

• After a game in which he was not sacked, Brunell was dropped five times for 25 yards by the Seahawks, who had only 14 sacks through 10 games. Brunell's sack total is now at 43, which is closing on an all-time NFL record.
