The New England Patriots are already expanding the playbook for rookie quarterback Mac Jones.
Late in the first quarter of Jones' second NFL start, offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels dialed up a double pass against the Jets on first-and-10 from New York's 33-yard line.
Jones tossed the ball to running back James White, who ran right before throwing back to Jones. The Pats rookie then calmly hit tight end Jonnu Smith for a 19-yard gain and a first down.
The play required a lot of effort for a 19-yard pickup and wasn't exactly a home run. But the big gain brought New England into the red zone, and White finished the job two plays later with a seven-yard touchdown run that put the Patriots up 10-0.
McDaniels called plenty of trick plays with Tom Brady under center, and after Sunday's clean execution, he may be comfortable giving Jones more opportunities for trickery going forward.
