Taylor second to Smith

The following are notes from the Jaguars' 28-3 win over the New York Jets.

• Mark Brunell's 72-yard pass to Fred Taylor on the Jaguars' first offensive play of the game is the second-longest non-touchdown play in team history. The longest is a 75-yard completion from Brunell to Jimmy Smith in 1997 vs. Kansas City.

• Donovin Darius' interception of punter Matt Turk's desperation pass is the eighth of Darius' career, which ties Chris Hudson for second place in Jaguars history.

• Stacey Mack's 14 career touchdowns moved him ahead of Brunell (13) for the fourth-most in Jaguars history. Mack became the seventh player in team history to record three or more touchdowns in a game. It's the only three-touchdown game of Mack's career.

• Fred Taylor hit the 100-yard rushing mark for the second time this season and for the 20th time in his career. His 142 yards rushing against the Jets is the fifth-highest single-game rushing mark in team history. Taylor finished with 237 yards from scrimmage (142 in rushing and a career-high 95 yards receiving), which is the third-most in team history (291 by Jimmy Smith at Baltimore in 2000 and 248 by Taylor at Pittsburgh in 2000).

• The Jaguars' 223 yards rushing is the third-most in team history (244 at Cleveland in 2000 and 240 at Pittsburgh in 2000).

• Marcus Stroud recorded the first sack of his career and Jason Craft got his third interception. Tony Brackens' sack is the 49th of his career. Bobby Shaw recorded his 100th career pass reception.

• The Jaguars scored a touchdown in their first possession of the game for the first time since at Cleveland in December of last year.
