    CHICAGO -- Chad Henne did all he could to keep the starting quarterback job with the Jacksonville Jaguars. [b]Cheap Mike Bibby Jersey[/b] . First-round pick Blake Bortles was about as good. Henne passed for 130 yards and a touchdown, and Bortles threw for 160 in relief before backup quarterback Jordan Palmer rallied the Chicago Bears to a 20-19 preseason victory over the Jaguars on Thursday night. Palmer, trying to beat out Jimmy Clausen for the No. 2 job, led Chicago to two fourth-quarter touchdowns. Senorise Perry scored on a 5-yard run with 50 seconds left, and C.J. Wilson intercepted a pass to seal the win after Henne and Bortles picked the Bears apart. Jared Allen made his first appearance for Chicago after signing in the off-season and finished with one tackle for a loss on an otherwise quiet night. The five-time Pro Bowl defensive end sat out last weeks opening win over Philadelphia after he missed practices because his wife had a baby. Henne showed mobility in the pocket and completed 12 of 17 passes before leaving with a 13-7 lead in the second quarter. "We feel very strongly about Chad," coach Gus Bradley said. But he also plans to give Bortles some snaps with the first team, possibly in the coming week. The rookie looked sharp again after an impressive showing last week in a victory over Tampa Bay. The No. 3 pick in the draft, Bortles went 11 for 17, but the Jaguars came away with the loss. Chicagos Jay Cutler completed 7 of 9 passes for 79 yards and called it a night after throwing a 4-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Marshall early in the second quarter. Clausen got the first call after Cutler left the game, with Palmer serving as the second man in relief in a flip from the preseason opener. But Clausen struggled through some headset problems after a strong performance last week. The former Notre Dame star and Carolina Panther went 11 of 15 for 94 yards. He also had a pass intercepted by Josh Evans early in the third quarter off linebacker Telvin Smiths deflection after the headset went out on him. "There were three to five plays where it just became confusion and he really didnt get us into the best plays," coach Marc Trestman said. "He was trying to make something good out of a bad situation, and there wasnt any way I could help him. That group of I would say up to a half a dozen plays when Jimmy was in there, it was very difficult to evaluate." Palmer started the fourth quarter and threw for 73 yards, completing 6 of 9 passes. "This is a competition and coaches have done a phenomenal job of making it very fair, evaluating us every day and so when you get to the preseason, you wait until your turn and then you go in there and try to make the most of it," Palmer said. Martellus Bennett had a 25-yard catch after being suspended by the team last week for an altercation in practice with cornerback Kyle Fuller, who left this game after injuring his ankle on the opening possession. Jacksonvilles Toby Gerhart ran for 19 yards in his first appearance with the Jaguars. The former Minnesota Vikings backup had missed nearly two weeks because of a hip flexor injury. Marqise Lee caught four passes for 27 yards and a touchdown after struggling against Tampa Bay. Mercedes Lewis had 46 yards on three receptions. The Jaguars scored on all three first-quarter possessions while grabbing a 13-0 lead, with Josh Scobee kicking a pair of field goals and Henne hitting Lee with a 6-yard touchdown pass. The TD came after Chicagos Eric Weems fumbled away a kickoff. The Bears cut it to 13-7 early in the second quarter, when Cutler hit Marshall with a 4-yarder to cap a 10-play drive. But a 43-yard field goal by Scobee late in the half made it 16-7. "Definitely the first couple of drives we wanted to get the tempo going," Henne said. "The way we did that was first and second down. We moved the chains and got some explosive plays out of it as well." Notes: Trestman said he has no issue with Marshall serving as an analyst for Showtimes "Inside the NFL" show. "I trust Brandon," he said. "He asked me about it. I trust him to make a decision that was in the best interest of the team first, and I know Brandon. I know hell do that." ... Trestman had few details on CB Kyle Fuller (ankle) and backup TE Zach Miller (foot) after they left the game with injuries. He did say the bruised knee that kept DE Willie Young out of the game is not serious. ... Jaguars RT Austin Pasztor (broken hand) and backup C Luke Bowanko (sprained ankle) left the game.

Indeed, must be among the greatest challenges in all of sports. The pressure he applies, from set to set, game to game, point to point, shot to shot. OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- When it came down to it, Jacoby Jones decided he just wanted to stay with the Baltimore Ravens. The 29-year old wide receiver signed a four-year contract with the Ravens Thursday after agreeing to terms on the contract Wednesday. "I wasnt even thinking about the money," Jones said. "Its the fact that this is probably the only place that will let me be myself." He later joked, "The city, the state, the organization, the coaches, they know I kind of dont have it all together up here, up top -- some loose ends -- and they all accept that." The former "Dancing with the Stars" participant was in the midst of a meeting with the New York Giants Wednesday when he made the decision that he wanted to return to the Ravens. After meeting with the Giants, Jones got in a car to head downtown and meet New York executives for dinner. During that car ride, Jones said he told the driver to head to the airport, that he wanted to come back to Baltimore. Jones agreed to terms with the Ravens later in the day. "Couldnt be more excited," coach John Harbaugh said. "Once again, we keep adding our guys on our offence. Our offence is getting better by maintaining the guys that we haave here right now. [b]Cheap Kevin Huerter Jersey[/b]. quot; Jones is the third offensive player to re-sign with Baltimore since Feb. 28, joining tight end Dennis Pitta and left tackle Eugene Monroe. Jones signed with the Ravens in 2012 after spending the first five seasons of his career with the Houston Texans. With Baltimore, he has been a weapon on special teams. He has five returns for touchdowns the last two years, including a 108-yard return for a touchdown in Super Bowl XLVII. But he also started nine games at wide receiver in 2013, and Harbaugh envisions him continuing to play a role on offence going forward. The Ravens hired Gary Kubiak in January to be their offensive co-ordinator. Kubiak was Jones coach in Houston during his time there. "Its just a great opportunity for us," Harbaugh said. "Jacoby is a playmaker, but hes not just a playmaker. I think everybody understands what he brings to the table in terms of ability to break open a game at any time, but hes also a quality receiver. "Hes a special teams player, but hes also a guy that can do the things that you need to do to move the chains when you need to move them. . And without question, we believe that his best football is in front of him." ' ' '
