Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne has been questioned about his last throw of the game that resulted in the Jets grabbing a game-clinching interception. Henne had helped convert a pair of fourth downs prior to the interception. On the play, Henne was under pressure when he launches a ball up in the air that is easily intercepted by Jets cornerback Ellis Lankster.

When asked about it during the postgame press-conference, Henne said that he was trying to get it out of bounds:

"Well to be honest I was just trying to throw it out of bounds. I kind of had a free runner at me, and just trying to get it as far out of bounds as I could and it just didn't end up that way."

Had Henne been successful in throwing the ball out of bounds, it would have been third down and 10 yards to go. The loss dropped the Jaguars to 2-11 on the season. The Jaguars next game is against the Miami Dolphins next Sunday at Sun Life Stadium in Miami. The game is scheduled for a 1 p.m. kickoff and the game will be broadcast on CBS with radio coverage provided by WOKV 690 AM and 106.5 FM.
