The Patriots pulled off a stunning victory over the Jets with a late punt return for a touchdown.

Returner Marcus Jones has now been named AFC special teams player of the week.

Jones took the return 84 yards to the house, making it the first punt return for a touchdown in 2022.

According to the league, Jones is the sixth player to record a game-winning punt-return touchdown in the last two minutes of regulation or in overtime since. Jones’ score was the first game-winner of its nature since DeSean Jackson did it with the Eagles in 2010.

The Patriots will be right back in action on Thursday to play the Vikings for the last Thanksgiving game in Week 12.

  1. BB does it again. The kid is a natural and you could see it on his game tape at Houston. He needs to bounce Bryant from the dime spot now. He’s made some nice plays, just needs more action.

  2. He is the best punt returner ever! He has a 16.6 yard average per return. This a T6 take like when he was say that about Edelman after a season of returns.
