Mac Jones

The Chicago Bears defeated the New England Patriots, 33-14, in a somewhat surprising Monday Night Football result. The loss dropped the Patriots to 3-4 on the season.

Patriots quarterback Mac Jones did not have a good night, as fans booed him and chanted for his replacement by backup Bailey Zappe.

Zappe Chants break out as the #Patriots go down 10-0,” a Twitter user wrote.

Jones was ultimately benched in favor of Zappe. Jones finished the night completing three passes on six attempts for 13 yards and an interception while Zappe was spotted singing “Stacey’s Mom” on the sidelines.

“Mac Jones said Bill Belichick was good about communicating before the game that two QBs would play. Jones on the Zappe chants: ‘I definitely want to play better. I’ve just got to do better at my job. That’s all I can control,'” wrote Chad Graff.

Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, in his typical taciturn style, deflected questions about who would be the starting quarterback next week.

The Patriots are next in action Sunday when they hit the road to face the New York Jets in New Jersey. The Patriots opened this week as one-point favorites over the rival Jets despite Monday night’s blowout home defeat.
