New England Patriots Bench QB Mac Jones For Final Drive In Loss To Indianapolis Colts

New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones was substituted for backup Bailey Zappe by head coach Bill Belichick following his interception against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday in the Patriots’ 10-6 loss at Frankfurt Stadium with 1:52 left in the fourth quarter.

There are doubts about Jones’ ability to start for the remainder of the season in light of his benching. Earlier in the season, he had already been substituted out of two games against the Dallas Cowboys and the New Orleans Saints, but both were decidedly close contests.

This time, however, was different as the Patriots took control at their 14-yard line and had the opportunity to drive for the winning touchdown. In the end, Zappe was intercepted, killing any chance of a comeback for the team.

“We’ll worry about next week next week,” Belichick responded when asked about the quarterback issue moving forward. The game has just ended.”

The Patriots, who are 2-8, will be off the following weekend.

With 4:24 left, New England was driving for what could have been the game-winning touchdown, moving to the Colts’ 15-yard line, when safety Julian Blackmon intercepted Jones on a pass that fell far short of his intended recipient.

Jones claimed that following the play, he was told from the sidelines that he would not be playing again.

Jones has completed 212 out of 324 passes for 2,031 yards this season, with 10 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. This season, Jones became the first quarterback to record ten interceptions. His troubles have been exacerbated by playing behind a patchwork offensive line that has seen seven different configurations in ten games, and a receiving corps that is among the least impressive in the NFL.

On the sidelines earlier in the game, Jones infuriated offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien.

At 8:38 of the third quarter, Jones attempted a risky underhanded pass to running back Rhamondre Stevenson, but it was incomplete, causing the Patriots to have a drive halt at the Colts’ 17-yard line.

O’Brien animatedly spoke to Jones while Jones sat next to him on the bench, reviewing plays on a computer tablet. O’Brien kept pointing at the tablet.

Jones intimated that O’Brien was pointing out open receivers he wasn’t seeing when he was questioned about the incident.

When asked if he thought Belichick still had faith in him, Jones responded, “You have to be better to make people believe.” I’m not certain. I’m not sure.

Following the game, Jones went to the X-ray room and stated that he still had faith in himself. After confirming that it was the consequence of a bruise, he said, “I’m good.”
