The New England Patriots will probably go about as far as Mac Jones will take them in 2022. If a report from Tuesday’s team practice is any indication, that might not be very far.

“Man, this is bad. The most troublesome offensive practice of summer,” Patriots reporter Andrew Callahan tweeted Tuesday from practice. “Jones 7/17 after his 2-minute drill ends in an INT.”

Callahan then outlined a series of plays as part of the two-minute drill, including two incomplete and an interception to kill the drive. That came on the heels of the previous 11-on-11 drills that includes three incomplete passes from Jones, as well as an inept run offense that garnered just one positive outcome in five rushing attempts.

It’s the latest in a long line of reports about offensive issues for the Patriots.

Patriots fans are already a bit concerned heading into the season given all the secrecy surrounding who is running the offense. But if the offense itself is performing this poorly, clearly something isn’t working.

Tuesday’s practice report certainly garnered some strong reactions from around the NFL world.

Of course, you always bet against Bill Belichick at your own risk, but there hasn’t been much to get excited about when it comes to the Patriots’ offense this season so far, and if there are more reports like this it’s only going to get worse.
