In the disastrous 3:38 defeat of the New England Patriots against the Dallas Cowboys, quarterback Mac Jones was benched after a poor performance. For head coach Bill Belichick it was the highest defeat of his coaching career.
It was a day to forget for quarterback Mac Jones. In the game against the Dallas Cowboys, the former first-round pick threw two interceptions and suffered a fumble. The Cowboys defence promptly converted two of the turnovers into touchdowns.
Head coach Bill Belichick reacted shortly before the fourth quarter and benched Mac Jones. Bailey Zappe took his place. The game ended 3:38 for the Cowboys – the highest defeat for Bill Belichick as Head Coach.
Away from turnovers, Jones completed twelve of his 21 passes for 150 yards. Teammate Zappe – in a losing cause at the time – found a receptor for four of his nine pass attempts.
David Andrews: “It’s a team sport “
In the aftermath of the game, centre David Andrew commented on the Mac Jones personnel.
“It’s a team sport and we all have to look in the mirror after a performance like that. It’s never anyone’s fault,” said the veteran.
Next week, the Patriots, who have won just one game so far this season, host the New Orleans Saints
