Mac Jones is a man filled with a lot of potential for success. With the New England Patriots’ Quarterback having the guts to make high-stakes risks in the manner, he opened the 2022-23 season on the unlikely end.

With the opportunity of scoring in sight, Mac Jones decided to throw a jump ball. Which only showcased the legendary of Xavien Howard and Jevon Holland. Howard was tight in coverage on Parker, who eventually deflected the tough pass into the air using the tips of his fingers. This allowed Holland to pick it off. 

The 29-year-old ran it out of the end zone and got it all the way back to the Dolphins’ 28-yard-line. While Mac Jones had been 3-for-3 for the spoken off 28 yards on the drive before the same action, replays showcased a different story. It showed that Howard had a strong hold of Parker’s jersey while in coverage but the officials on the field didn’t see it.

As soon as the clock timed off, Mac Jones was the first player to rush into the tunnel, which said plenty about the pain he was suffering through.

With several members of the staff waiting outside the room, the urgency from the trainer – Jim Whalen, spoken volumes about the concern in New England dugout. 

Lastly, the 24-year-old sensation also did not make it to the post-game interviews. That is exactly where it was revealed by the team’s spokesperson that Jones had suffered from a back injury. Hence, he wouldn’t be available.
