New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick spoke positively of rookie quarterback Mac Jones following the team’s Week 5 win over the Houston Texans.
The Texans scored a touchdown at the start of the third quarter to take a 22-9 lead but Jones then took over the game and led the Patriots to 16 unanswered points and a 25-22 win.
Jones completed 23-of-30 passes for 231 yards, had one touchdown and an interception as the Patriots avoided losing a third consecutive game.
“Mac gave it to us all day. I thought we moved the ball, and I thought he made a lot of good decisions,” coach Belichick said. “There were some checks he had to make, but really the last drive — the third-down conversion to [tight end] Hunter [Henry] and then we had a couple good runs in there.
“But Mac’s been good for us all year in terms of his leadership, his resilience, and kind of always counting on him to do the right thing. And he really does it at a high level. It’s been impressive.”
