Taylor, Taylor and more Taylor

The following are notes from the Jaguars' 48-0 win over the Cleveland Browns today at Alltel Stadium:

• Fred Taylor's 181 yards rushing mark the seventh consecutive game he has broken the 100-yard mark. It is the fourth-longest 100-yard streak in NFL history and it is the 16th 100-yard game in the regular-season in Taylor's career. At 1,100 yards, he is over the 1,000-yard mark for the second time in his career. His personal single-season high is 1,223 yards in his rookie season, 1998. Also, his 3,055 career rushing yards is a Jaguars record, eclipsing James Stewart's 2,951 yards rushing. Taylor has rushed for three touchdowns in a game three times in his career. The previous two were at Pittsburgh on Nov. 19 and against Tampa Bay on Nov. 15, 1998.

• The Jaguars' 48 points is their most in a regular-season game. The previous high was 45 points at Baltimore on Nov. 1, 1998. The six touchdowns tie the team high from that game in Baltimore. It was also the second defensive shutout in team history.

• In three games against the league's two Ohio teams this season, the Jaguars have allowed only seven points. The Jaguars previously shut out Cincinnati on Sept. 17.

• Jimmy Smith has caught at least one pass in 84 straight games in which he has played, the seventh-longest streak among active players. Smith has 1,008 receiving yards this season, which is his fifth consecutive season over the 1,000-yard mark. With 104 yards receiving today, Smith has four 100-yard games this season and 28 in his career.

• Mark Brunell has thrown for 3,026 yards this season, marking the fourth time in the last five years he has topped the 3,000-yard mark.

• The game-time temperature of 46 degrees made it the second-coldest game in Alltel Stadium history. The coldest is 42 degrees on Dec. 24, 1995. Cleveland was the foe, then, too.

• Tony Brackens has the team lead with 5.5 sacks. The Jaguars' six sacks are a season high.

• The Jaguars' two first downs allowed are a team record, breaking the record of nine on Oct. 20, 1996 in St. Louis. The no first downs allowed passing breaks the previous record of three in St. Louis, and the one first down allowed rushing ties three other games.

• Fifty-three net yards allowed broke the previous record of 182 at Atlanta on Nov. 7, 1999. The minus-nine yards allowed passing broke the previous record of 80 vs. Houston on Sept. 3, 1995, the Jaguars' inaugural game.

• Cornerback Fernando Bryant left the game in the first half with an ankle injury.
