Run records for Jags, good and bad

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Two piece of context for you on the Jaguars run defense and run offense efforts Sunday in the 30-13 loss to the previously winless Titans.
- Jack Del Rio said the effort “completely catches me off guard” and did his best to fall on the sword as he talked about how the Jags “allow[ed] a team to basically cram it down our throats.” Of course the coach wasn’t sliding off Chris Johnson as the back shredded his defense for 228 yards. The Titans now have the two most prolific rushing days against the Jaguars in their history -- 305 today and 282 on Sept. 9, 2007.
- With his 80- and 79-yard touchdown runs, Maurice Jones-Drew became just the third player in NFL history to have two scoring runs of 75 yards or more in the same game. Barry Sanders did it Oct. 12, 1997 and Frank Gore did it Sept. 20, 2009.
