New England signal-caller Mac Jones addressed the media following the outburst during TNF

‘Obviously, I just kind of let my emotions get to me,’ he said after the crucial divisional loss. 

‘What I said was about throwing it deeper within the short game. I got to execute that part better. 

‘But it’s the short game that we kept going to, which is working. But I felt like we needed chunk plays. 

‘I shouted that out to kind of get everyone going. That’s emotional. That’s football. I’m passionate about this game.’

The sophomore signal-caller conveyed he and Patricia were aligned as the Patriots attempted to gain ground on Buffalo as the ball game progressed.

“It was just, “Let’s go for it, let’s be aggressive, let’s take those shots. Just go down fighting,” Matty P was on the same page,’ Jones remarked. 

‘Obviously, you don’t want to let your emotions get the best of you. I think that’s pretty much it. It wasn’t directed at anybody. Just emotion coming out. We kind of needed a spark.’

Bill Belichick’s team were a meagre 3/12 of third down and had just 242 total yards of offense.
