In Week 7, when diagnosing Mac Jones’ best and worst, let’s be honest: Jones’ best far outweighed the worst.
And by a wide margin.
Nonetheless, there is always enough of each to revisit for everyone, though it wouldn’t be a stretch to call Sunday’s performance against the Buffalo Bills arguably the best of Mac Jones’ career. In the end, Jones finished 25-of-30 for 272 yards, two touchdowns and zero interceptions. He was sacked only once. Jones’ quarterback rating of 126.7 was the third-highest of his career. Still, factoring in the opponent and circumstances, it’s reasonable to say he has never had a more meaningful performance as a member of the Patriots.
Jones had more than a handful of good throws in this game, completing a succession of key passes in the final seconds of the game to elevate the Patriots to a 29-25 victory at Gillette Stadium. The worst throws were few and (very) far in between, and there was really only one that made Pats fans hold their breath when the game was in the balance.
In chronological order, here are just some of Jones’ best and worst throws of the day:
