The New England Patriots snapped their two-game losing streak with a 27-13 win over the Arizona Cardinals on Monday Night Football and moved back into the final playoff spot in the AFC. 

On offense, quarterback Mac Jones completed 24/35 passes for 235 yards but threw his first interception in five games. Before the turnover, Jones had gone 161 pass attempts without an interception for the longest active streak in the NFL. 

The Patriots running back depth got tested after Rhamondre Stevenson was limited to three carries after sustaining an ankle injury. Damien Harris was also unavailable for the contest due to a thigh injury. In their absence, rookies Kevin Harris and Pierre Strong combined for 12 carries on 96 yards with a rushing touchdown each. 

“Yeah. It was great,” Bill Belichick said when asked about Harris and Strong contributing. “They got an opportunity and made some big plays. We’ll see if they can sustain it, show up week after week and people will start looking for them.”

As for the play of the game? Linebacker Raekwon McMillan returned a “scoop and score” touchdown 23 yards to the house following a forced fumble by safety Kyle Dugger on All-Pro receiver DeAndre Hopkins.  

The defense pressured Cardinals backup quarterback Colt McCoy all night, recording six total sacks, three of which came from linebacker Josh Uche. Lastly, Marcus Jones, who seems to contribute everywhere for the Patriots in 2022, recorded his first NFL career interception.
