The Patriots improved to 10-6 on the season and are on the cusp of clinching a playoff spot, after demolishing the Jacksonville Jaguars 50-10 on Sunday at Gillette Stadium. Scroll down to see a recap of all the top highlights from the game.

  • Q4, 7:07: Patriots serve up a 50-burger

    There’s not much left to say about this game, which has long been over. But we’ll mention that the Patriots scored another touchdown, because of course. Rhamondre Stevenson is in for the Pats’ fourth rushing touchdown of the game.

    Thanks to a botched hold by punter Jake Bailey in the rain, the extra point was no good. But it’s still 50-3 Patriots. That good?

    The biggest play of this particular drive was a 46-yard catch-and-run by Kendrick Bourne, which you can watch above.

  • Q3, 2:42: Patriots make yet another INT, score yet another TD

    Another Trevor Lawrence interception, another Patriots cash-in for the touchdown. Kyle Dugger read it all the way and nearly had himself a pick-six, but was pushed out of bounds at the 1. Rhamondre Stevenson finished it off for the score. It’s now 41-3 Patriots.

  • Q3, 11:14: Patriots score yet again

    The rout is on at Gillette Stadium. The offense just drove right down the field no problem, again. And this time, Kristian Wilkerson was just completely wide-ass open. I mean, you’ll want to cover him more than THAT.

    Anyway, it’s 34-3 Patriots after Nick Folk’s extra point attempt was blocked. Other than a couple of big plays by the Jags, that’s really the only obvious miscue by the Patriots so far today.

  • Q2, 0:48: Patriots go up 28-3

    The Pats are cookin’. Mac Jones dropped a pretty ball int the hands of Jakobi Meyers, where only he could get it, in the back corner of the end zone for New England’s fourth touchdown of the day. It’s now the safest lead in football … 28-3 Patriots.

    Overall, Jones is 12-for-14 for 107 yards and two touchdowns. That’s a 138.1 passer rating. For one half, anyway, it’s been a thrilling return to form for the Patriots offense, which hasn’t looked this good since perhaps Week 12 against the Titans.

  • Q2, 1:56: Jackson makes eighth INT

    Another INT for Trevor Lawrence. This time, it went to “Mr. INT.” J.C. Jackson undercut Tavon Austin’s route and the play simply wasn’t there for Lawrence, so it was an ill-advised decision to target Austin with the Patriots’ ball-hawking cornerback all over him. But credit to Jackson for making the play, which was on a throw relatively low to the ground. The Patriots are taking over again, and have a chance to go up by the iconic score of 28-3. Stay tuned…

  • Q2, 4:40: Patriots cash in on INT

    The Patriots took full advantage of Myles Bryant’s interception of Trevor Lawrence, driving 33 yards in seven plays for their third touchdown of the day. This time, Mac Jones escaped the pocket and found Kristian Wilkerson open in the back of the end zone. Wilkerson made the catch and tapped both feet in bounds to complete the TD.

    Great play for Jones and Wilkerson, horrible look for the healthy-scratched N’Keal Harry.

  • Q2, 8:17: Bryant intercepts Lawrence

    Now the Patriots are in business. It’s first-and-10 for the Pats at the Jaguars’ 33-yard line after cornerback Myles Bryant was in the right place at the right time to pick off Trevor Lawrence. The ball slipped right through the hands of receiver Ryquell Armstead and sailed safely into Bryant’s bread basket. Pats have a chance to build an early runaway here.

  • Q2, 12:02: Harris scores again

    Two possessions, two impressive touchdown drives capped by a Damien Harris run. The Patriots are up 14-3 after Harris rumbled into the end zone for his second score of the day, already. Looks like Harris could win people some fantasy championships today.

    It was another efficient drive for the Patriots. Mac Jones is a perfect 7-for-7 passing so far, and they also rushed seven times for 40 yards. That includes a jet sweep for Kendrick Bourne and a Jones QB sneak.

    So far, an excellent bounce-back performance by the Pats offense after an ugly couple of games.

  • Q1, 2:18: Jaguars on the board

    Welp. Won’t be a shutout for the Patriots defense today, after Trevor Lawrence and Laquon Treadwell connected for a 40-yard pass and catch. The Patriots defense bent but did not break, however, as the Jags settled for a field goal. It’s now 7-3 Patriots.

  • Q1, 5:49: Patriots strike first

    The first quarter is flying by, thanks to a long, run-heavy drive by the Patriots that ended with a Damien Harris touchdown run up the gut. Harris simply followed lead blocker Jakob Johnson to power his way in.

    It was an impressive drive for the Patriots, though. Eleven plays, 70 yards, 7:03 off the clock. The Pats rushed seven times for 45 yards, and also converted a pair of third downs. Mac Jones was 5-for-5 for 47 yards through the air.

    Good start all-around for the Patriots, who also forced a three-and-out with a sack on the Jaguars’ first drive. About time to see them start this strong.
