Mac Jones gets the opportunity to replicate Tom Brady’s feat


Mac Jones and the New England Patriots were beaten by the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday night as the Pats’ offense could not help. But if Jones is a half-full glass type person, he may see the Patriots’ huge deficit as an opportunity for him to pull out a Tom Brady.

Via ESPN Stats & Info (h / t ESPN’s Mike Reiss):

From @ESPNStatsInfo: The Patriots have not closed a deficit of at least 17 points since Super Bowl LI against the Falcons (28-3).

Not so long ago, Brady, then still with the Patriots, led New England to a Vince Lombardi Trophy in Super Bowl LI against the Atlanta Falcons, despite dropping 25 points at one point. of the competition. If Jones were to replicate that feat in that Week 15 road game at Lucas Oil Stadium, it will need to be more specific, especially given how locked down the Indianapolis defense has so far in the contest. Colts linebacker Darius Leonard has been a monster for the Indianapolis stopping unit, and he’s already had a booming interception in the red zone on a great read from Jones.

However, the game is not over yet. Nothing is ever really out of reach for Bill Belichick and the Patriots.

Eagles, Carson Wentz, Foals
