Mac Jones posts unique game in Patriots’ victory

The Patriots defeated the New York Jets 10-3 on Sunday thanks in large part to the remarkable performance of New England quarterback Mac Jones.

Former All-American quarterback for Alabama who completed 23 of 27 passes for 246 yards.

With his performance, Jones became the 65th quarterback in NFL history to throw for 246 yards or more while completing at least 85% of his passes.

Jones joined the list as the third former Crimson Tide signal-caller. On October 15, 1961, the Green Bay Packers defeated the Cleveland Browns 49-17. Bart 

Bart Starr was the second player to have the stat line. On October 28, 1973, the Oakland Raiders defeated the Baltimore Ravens 34-21. 

On November 10, 1980, the Houston Oilers defeated the New England Patriots 38-34. Ken Stabler had the fourth and sixth such games.

However, Jones did not complete a touchdown pass on Sunday, unlike Starr and Stabler. 

It was the third occasion that a player failed to throw a touchdown pass while having at least 246 throwing yards and an 85% completion rate.
