The New England Patriots fell to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, but Mac Jones showed some serious poise in the overtime thriller.
Jones came through with a clutch 75-yard touchdown pass to Kendrick Bourne to put the Patriots back ahead late in the fourth quarter. The TD made up for his costly pick-six on the previous play.
The Patriots won the coin toss in OT, but the offense failed to take advantage of its oportunity. Dak Prescott and the Cowboys capitalized with a 35-yard TD pass to CeeDee Lamb to escape with the 35-29 win.
Here's Jones' final stat line for the day:
15/21, 229 yds, 2 TD, 1 INT, 119.0 rating
And here were the rookie QB's top highlights:
Jones' first touchdown pass was a 20-yard strike to tight end Hunter Henry to put the Patriots ahead in the first quarter.
With a 21-20 lead late in the fourth quarter, Jones tossed a pick-six on 2nd and 15. Trevon Diggs came up with the interception, the Cowboys cornerback's seventh INT in six games.
Jones made up for the mistake, beating Diggs with a 75-yard touchdown pass to Kendrick Bourne on the very next play. It was the longest touchdown pass by a Patriots player since Tom Brady in 2017.
The Patriots (2-4) will host the New York Jets (1-4) next Sunday at 1 p.m. ET.
