New England Patriots rookie quarterback Mac Jones is absolutely balling against the Cleveland Browns, and he just led a 99-yard drive to give his team a 21-7 advantage in the Week 10 matchup.
Jones capped off the 11-play drive with a 23-yard strike to Kendrick Bourne:

After this touchdown pass, Jones sat at 9-of-10 passing for 116 yards and a pair of touchdowns. The Patriots rookie has played essentially a flawless football game, while Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield has been something of a train wreck.
Jones has enjoyed a stellar rookie season after going in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft behind a group of other young quarterbacks. He entered play with 2,135 yards passing, 10 touchdowns and seven interceptions, good for a QB rating just under 90. While that’s not elite or anything, it’s pretty darn solid for a first-year quarterback.
New England is looking to get to 6-4 on the season. The Patriots are only 1-4 at home in 2021, so they’re attempting to rectify that with a big AFC win over a Cleveland team that also sits at 5-4 on the season.
Stay tuned to see if New England can come up with a huge home win.
