Things are going from bad to worse for New England’s offense.

On the first play of the third quarter, quarterback Mac Jones threw a low pass to tight end Jonnu Smith. The tight end dove for it, but it went off his hands and up into the arms of safety Malcolm Jenkins.

With no one in a blue jersey in front of him, Jenkins darted 34 yards to the end zone for a touchdown.

It was Jenkins’ first pick six since 2016 when he played for the Eagles.

For Jones, it’s his second interception of the game after throwing none in the first two weeks of the season.

The Saints are now ahead 21-3 with a little over 13 minutes remaining in the third quarter.

  1. Watched the preview video. You guys crack me up with the recency effect. After week 1, Winston was a top 5 QB. After week 2, he is damaged and can’t beat a rookie. One week is not enough to make either of these assumptions. Five TD’s was great, but less than 200 yards? That isn’t top 5 and one bad week doesn’t define him either. He’s doing better this week, but so is the defense. It is a team sport.

    We want Cam back

    Yup 3 games into Mac’s career and you’ve already decided he’s not good. Good grief….

  3. The Patriots finally played a decent team, and could not do 1 thing well. NOT ONE! It was way worse than the final score. Epic fail. Very discouraging.

  4. I won’t bad mouth Mac Jones the way the haters did with Wilson after his last game. One game, one season won’t label anyone a bust, as one did before the season even began. In my opinion, I think Mac Jones is going to be a good NFL QB, probably even a very good QB. I don’t think he’ll be great by any means, but it just goes to show you that you foolishly should not make ridiculous, arrogant claims about a player after one game, or after one bad game.

  5. Good for Malcolm, who has been a great player and a great person for a long time. Tough luck for Jones. He’s young and still learning that throws that are “almost” on target can kill you in the NFL.
