Scott Zolak: Step in the right direction for the Patriots offense
Scott Zolak details what he saw from the Patriots offense in a 29-25 win over the Bills on Sunday:
“Good for Mac. Good for Mac Jones. What a drive for Mac Jones. That’s his first big boy drive. Don’t give me Houston two years ago. I don’t want to talk about Houston.
“He should enjoy it. He should enjoyed it all night. He’s getting better. He’s been getting his ass kicked in everywhere.
“It means you can build off it. It means, holy crap. Cole Strange. Get out there and play every day. Mike Onwenu, we’re keeping you at right tackle because that’s where it starts. You’re not getting the ball to Pop Douglas if those five guys don’t block in front of you. I thought they were really good, along with Rhamondre and Zeke and protection. I thought Trent Brown had himself a day. Crushed him last week. Credit to him, came out, played his ass off yesterday, got knocked out, went to the injury tent. Patriots got the ball back after Buffalo scored it again. Trent Brown does what? Hurry up, grabs his helmet, gets out there on the sideline. I’m going like, wow, okay. This team wants to win. They want to play. Guys wanted the ball yesterday. It starts up front, though.
“Everybody got it. Mac steps up. He hears it. It was like the old offense. It was refreshing to see. We’re like, Who the hell is this team?
“That was a good win by Billy as a hell of a day for Bill O’Brien. That was a great day for him. I thought between all the motion they used, they really incorporated play action the way you wanted them to and. It all work to their advantage. It’s a good game plan offensively.”
