Quarterback Mac Jones put together one of the strongest performances in his young NFL career on Sunday during the Patriots’ 45-7 win over the Cleveland Browns.
Jones completed 19 of 23 passes for 198 yards and three touchdowns. He also finished the game with a passer rating of 142.1 for his fifth game above 100 (minimum of 20 pass attempts). Through ten weeks, no other rookie quarterback from the 2021 draft class has one game with a passer rating of 100 or better.
Additionally, Jones logged career highs in completion percentage (82.6), passing touchdowns (3), and passer rating (142.1). He also became the first Patriots rookie quarterback ever to throw three passing touchdowns and have no interceptions in a single game.
“Everyone just finds their role, and for me, that’s just being more vocal. I think we’re all on the same page, which is good,” Jones told WEEI’s Merloni and Fauria on Monday when reflecting on the team’s recent success. “That’s a weekly thing we have to strive for, getting on the same page with the game plan, and putting on a good show on Sunday and putting enough points on the board.”
On Tuesday the Patriots media team put together the following highlight reel featuring the top three completions Jones made against the Browns. Check it out below.
