Jags Pick Up Their Second Win As Henne Gets Start

In his first start after the injury to quarterback Blaine Gabbert, Chad Henne strung together another impressive passing performance to propel the Jacksonville Jaguars to their second win of the year over the Tennessee Titans 24-19. Henne threw for 261 yards with two scores and one interception. Overall, head coach Mike Mularkey was pleased with what he saw out of his quarterback.

On top of the surprising play of late out of the quarterback position, the wideouts on the team have been stepping up. Cecil Shorts III had four receptions for 105 yards, including a 59-yard touchdown. Also, first-round draft pick Justin Blackmon has been picking up his play with Henne under center, most recently turning in five catches for 62 yards and a score. Mularkey wants to continue to see big plays out of his offense like this week.

Coming off of their second win this season and strong offensive performance, Mularkey and the Jags have a little more to smile about going into next week’s game against the Buffalo Bills. The one thing Mularkey took away from the game though was the presence of the home crowd.
