Patriots’ Mac Jones’ humble admission after step forward with deep passing game

Patriots, Mac Jones

The New England Patriots were able to pull away from the hobbled Tennessee Titans on Sunday and walk away with a 36-13 win. It was a decent outing, but Mac Jones continues to prove himself as a worthy NFL quarterback. After many had doubted him, it seems Jones is coming into his own in New England.

His development has been impressive, as Mac Jones looks like a veteran out there slinging it for the Patriots. However, it seems the young rookie has his head on his shoulders, as he credits his teammates for his recent success, per Matt Vautour.

Mac Jones was asked about the deep pass plays he was completing at a consistent rate. The Patriots’ quarterback responded by saying, “First thing is (the) offensive line, playing really well and we feel confident in doing that, and I don’t think I got hit today but maybe one time, and that was a talented defensive front.”

The offensive line played out of their minds against the Titans on Sunday. Tennessee’s pass rush has been dangerous this year, but they were essentially useless against the Patriots. Jones also credits his wide receiver core for his impressive development, per Matt Vautour.

“Like I said, it starts with the front and then the guys getting open, they have done a good job of that all year and it’s just getting the ball in tried and throwing it to the right guy. We’ve just got to continue to improve on that.”

New England seems to be back in action after achieving their sixth straight win on the season. Mac Jones continues to get stronger, which bodes well for the Patriots’ chances of potentially returning to a Super Bowl.
