Smith keeps catch streak alive

The following are notes from the Jaguars' 35-16 loss to the Washington Redskins:

Despite playing on a badly bruised right knee, wide receiver Jimmy Smith caught two passes for 17 yards, which kept his consecutive-games-having-caught-a-pass streak alive at 80, the second-best among active players. However, Smith re-aggravated his knee injury, which jeopardizes his status for this Sunday's game in Dallas.

Mike Hollis has converted 12 consecutive field goal attempts and has yet to miss this season. His previous high was seven straight in 1999. Hollis kicked a 51-yarder, Hollis' long of the season, and he is nine of 12 in his career from 50 yards and out.

Kyle Brady set career highs for receptions (eight) and receiving yards (111). His 30-yard reception is a season-best and tied his career long with the Jaguars. He's only the second tight end in Jaguars history to reach 100 yards in a game.

Mark Brunell threw his first touchdown pass in 15 quarters with his 33-yard strike to R. Jay Soward. It was Soward's first NFL touchdown catch.

With his fumble recovery, Tony Brackens ties Aaron Beasley for the franchise lead in career take-aways with 13.

Fred Taylor's 124 yards rushing is the 11th 100-yard game of his career.

Redskins wide receiver Albert Connell's 77-yard touchdown reception is the second-longest surrendered by the Jaguars in their history. Connell's three touchdown receptions tied the most allowed by the Jaguars, and Connell's 211 yards receiving is the most-ever by a Jaguars opponent. The previous high was by Pittsburgh's Yancey Thigpen on Oct. 26, 1997. Connell's 211 yards is the seventh-best in Redskins history.

Middle linebacker Hardy Nickerson was active for the Redskins game but did not play, marking the third consecutive game he's missed since pulling a hamstring in the first half of the loss to Pittsburgh on Oct. 1. Nickerson said he was at 80-85 percent of capacity.

Rookie T.J. Slaughter played in place of Nickerson, again, and Slaughter led the Jaguars in tackles with seven.
