Mac Jones channels inner Tom Brady with Pats-Jets pregame entrance

Patriots

Mac Jones is finding his voice as an NFL starting quarterback.

The New England Patriots rookie is just 2-4 in his first six games, but he's already showing signs that he can be a productive QB for years to come.

He's shown plenty of competitive fire, as well -- some of which was on display Sunday at Gillette Stadium ahead of New England's game against the New York Jets. Check out Jones' pregame yell and bark (!) after running out of the tunnel prior to kickoff:

No one will mistake Jones for Tom Brady, but the rookie did a decent impersonation of the former Patriots legend's famous "Let's go!!!" scream before every game. (We're not sure if we've ever heard Brady bark like that, though...)

Jones entered Sunday's contest with the NFL's fourth-best completion percentage (71.1%) and 1,472 passing yards with seven touchdown passes and six interceptions.

While he still needs to develop as a downfield passer, the Alabama product has been the best QB in this year's rookie class with an impressive bite to match his bark.
