Mac Jones has completed his first pass as quarterback of the New England Patriots.

Similar to Tom Brady's first completion 21 years ago, it's not a play that will be remembered for any reason other than the fact it was the first. But nonetheless, Jones hit one of Brady's favorite former targets, James White, for a 4-yard completion while under duress on third-and-21 from the 41-yard line of the Miami Dolphins.

The Patriots, who received the ball to start the game and picked up two first downs on the ground before stalling out, would go on to punt.

Jones was sacked on his first NFL drop back for a 13-yard loss by Massachusetts native Christian Wilkins.

As for Brady's first NFL completion: that went to tight end Rod Rutledge in a 34-9 loss to the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving in 2000, a 6-yard gain in relief of Drew Bledsoe in a 34-9 loss.
