Mac Jones’ performance was the worst in Patriots history
Jabrill Peppers plans to contact Jack Jones after bank visit to ‘see where his head is at’
MacJones is tied with Green Bay’s Jordan Love for the most interceptions in the NFL this season. Both have 10.
But Jones’s most recent interception his final pass against the Colts on Sunday was perhaps his worst yet.
Jones said after the game that it was a throw he had practiced many times. He had Mike Gesicki open in the end zone, but the ball was underthrown and picked away. After being benched for the third time in 10 games, Jones says he’s not sure Bill Belichick believes in him anymore.
The ramifications for Jones’ interception could extend beyond Sunday’s game. Peter King wrote in a column for NBC Sports.
“That wasn’t just a big interception that Jones threw to cost the Patriots the game in Frankfort on Sunday,” King wrote. “That could have been a career-destroying interception.”
It’s unclear if Jones will continue moving forward. Bailey Zappe finished the match in his place. The Patriots have stuck with Jones as the starter the past two seasons despite producing mediocre results, and no changes have been announced yet.
King wrote that Jones is a shadow of the player he once was during his rookie season and wondered if Belichick could put Jones back on the field after the bye week.
