New England Patriots vs New York Jets surely wasn’t a fast and offensively loaded game, that every football fan would’ve wanted to monitor. With the former team winning 10-3 on Sunday, Mac Jones got brutally honest about his positives and negatives after undergoing a full audit of himself during the team’s bye week.
Although it was a low-scoring game yet Mac Jones held the play firmly for his side. He completed 23-of-27 passes for 246 yards and for the second time in the 2022-23 season, didn’t throw a single interception.
While this was his positive side, he was evidently struggling on the offensive end – he quarterbacked a Patriots offense that struggled to get points on the board for a third consecutive encounter, failing to score a TD as a combined unit.
Mac Jones gets real on his performance
Following a report from the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport on Sunday said that Jones spent time during the bye week focusing on the timing and syncing of the offense.
“I think a little bit. Definitely improved on that. Talked about it,” Jones stated how he feels he has improved after the much-required time off the football field. “Any offense, timing, spacing, all that stuff, drop depth, everything. Definitely going to look at the film and see how it looks, but for the most part I felt like it was good, and like I said, tough conditions to play in, 20-, 25-mile-per-hour winds.”
“So proud of the guys for catching the ball and doing all that stuff. The linemen did good. I think some of those sacks are coverage sacks, and it kind of is what it is. That’s football, right? You’re in long yardage, and they have good players on the defensive side of the football, and that team specifically with the defensive line. Did some good things. Definitely want to get through the fringe and score more touchdowns.”
