Henne didn't rack up a huge yardage total despite throwing the ball 27 times, as he completed just 12 of those passes. He finished the game with 117 yards, but was able to avoid any mistakes, while throwing for two first-half touchdowns.
Henne still has more interceptions (10) than touchdowns (eight) on the season, but he does have a four-to-one ratio over the last two games. He added a season-high 33 rushing yards Thursday, on four carries. The Jaguars next game is set for Week 15 against the Bills.
Henne's Week 14 opponent, the Texans, are fresh in his memory -- the teams faced off in Week 12, when Henne was held to 239 yards and no touchdowns. There's not much hope here for an improvement -- the Texans have allowed the second-fewest passing yards this season (188 per game) and have held opposing quarterbacks to one or fewer touchdowns on five occasions.
Henne's always capable of that out-of-nowhere 300-yard game, but it's probably not happening in Week 14 against one of the league's stingiest pass defenses. He can be left on the waiver wire in most formats.
Henne finished 22 of 40 for 195 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. The second score was a perfect strike to wide receiver Cecil Shorts for the game-winner with just 40 seconds remaining.
Forgotten at that point was a 1-for-8 stretch after a hot start in which Henne completed 7 of 8 for 57 yards and a touchdown to tight end Clay Harbor as the Jaguars were mixing up the plays well.
Henne won't have much time to prepare for his Week 14 game. The Jaguars host Houston on Thursday night.
Henne has thrown a mere four touchdown passes in nine games, which is definitely a Fantasy turnoff. And since the suspension that removed Justin Blackmon from the lineup, his overall numbers have suffered as well. He threw for 918 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions in three-and-a-half games with Blackmon and Cecil Shorts as a dynamic duo. He has 674 yards, one score and four picks in three games since.
Week 13 foe Cleveland boasts a strong pass defense. The Browns rank fifth in the NFL in passing yards given up (2,292) and third in net yards yielded per pass attempt (5.2). And their struggling offense rarely puts their opponents in position to play catch-up, which could limit Henne's pass attempts.
Henne is nowhere to be seen in the top 24 quarterback rankings this week of two of the three CBSSports.com senior Fantasy writers. Take their advice and avoid playing him at all costs.
