Edelman, ex-Pats CB loved this Mac Jones dime for TD vs. Browns

Mac Jones came out firing against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

The New England Patriots quarterback completed 10 of his first 11 passes at Gillette Stadium and had two touchdown passes by halftime. The second of his TD strikes was a perfectly-placed ball to wide receiver Kendrick Bourne, who made a great leaping catch for a 23-yard score.

Jones' hot start turned plenty of heads, as former Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman and ex-Patriots cornerback Darius Butler showed love for the rookie quarterback on Twitter.

Jones' early performance also caught the attention of several national football analysts, including ESPN's Louis Riddick and Mina Kimes.

Jones entered Sunday with just one touchdown pass and an interception in his last two games, but the No. 15 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft was on his A-game in the first half of Week 10 against a top-10 defense in the Browns.
