Jacksonville, FL (Sports Network) - Chad Henne threw for 261 yards with two scores on 17-of-26 passing and the Jacksonville Jaguars hung on for a 24-19 win over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday at EverBank Field.
Henne got the starting call in place of Blaine Gabbert, who was hurt in last week's loss to the Houston Texans and was subsequently placed on injured reserve earlier in the week.
Rashad Jennings ran for 43 yards and a score on 16 carries, while Cecil Shorts caught four passes for 105 yards and a touchdown for the Jags (2-9), who finally put the brakes on a seven-game slide. They came close last week in a 43-37 overtime loss at Houston and won for the first time since a 22-17 triumph over Indianapolis in Week 3.
Jake Locker made his second straight start for Tennessee after missing five games with a shoulder problem and threw for 261 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions on 23-of-40 passing.
Chris Johnson ran for 80 yards on 21 carries and Kenny Britt snagged a touchdown pass for the Titans (4-7), who were coming off their bye and failed to build on a 37-3 win at Miami two weeks ago. Tennessee has dropped three of its last four games.
