Ex-Michigan quarterback Chad Henne sets team record, leads Miami Dolphins
JACKSONVILLE, Fla (AP) - Former Michigan quarterback Chad Henne completed a team-record 17 consecutive passes for the Miami Dolphins on Sunday and the team’s best defensive performance in more than two months sealed a 14-10 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Henne, Ricky Williams and the defense have given Miami hope of earning a playoff berth after an 0-3 start. Henne and Williams powered the Dolphins to a 14-0 lead in the second quarter, and the defense made it hold the rest of the way.
Coming off a career-high 335 yards passing against New England, Henne completed 17 in a row against a defense that played without former Pro Bowl cornerback Rashean Mathis for the fourth consecutive game. Henne came one completion shy of tying Chad Pennington's franchise mark of 18 in a row set over two games in 2008.
Henne finished 21-of-28 passing for 220 yards with an interception. He directed two long scoring drives in the first half, capping one with Williams' 1-yard run and another with his bootleg.
