Jaguars vs. Bills 2012: Chad Henne struggles in loss

Tom Szczerbowski

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne struggled mightily against the Buffalo Bills after two straight strong performances.

The Jacksonville Jaguars returned to their losing ways when they got thumped, 34-18, by the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. The Jaguars had been seeking their first set of back-to-back wins since 2010, but they failed due to a couple of factors.

One, the rush defense gave up a whopping 232 yards on the ground. And two, Chad Henne, who had played so well the previous two weeks, really struggled. Alfie Crow over at SB Nation's Jaguars blog Big Cat Country says that type of inconsistency from Henne should come as no surprise:

Henne on the day was sporadic, often missing on his throws down the football field. He suffered and handful of drops, but also missed on quite a few ill-advised passes down the middle of the field. Henne ended the day completing just 43.9 percent of his passes for 208 yards a touchdown and an interception. Henne was much close to the player we saw against the Oakland Raiders than the guy from two weeks ago.

Such is the career of Chad Henne, though.

Henne has been in the league for five years and has never been able to put it all together. He struggled as the starter in Miami, so it would be somewhat foolish to expect the quarterback to continue to put up crazy good numbers.

Henne will look to get back on track next weekend against the New York Jets. It will be a tough challenge, as the Jets boast one of the top pass defenses in the NFL.
