Gone are the glory days of the New England Patriots. When the Belichick-Brady duo would take the field, fans knew they were in for a win. But Brady has moved on, and Belichick has to make do with his successor, Mac Jones. And it seems like the legacy is too heavy to bear on his shoulders. After a 1-3 score at the end of week 4, they added one more to their mounting losses.

New England Patriots fans gathered with hope at their home stadium, hoping to see their team rock the field. But instead, they spent their money to see all the points be gathered by the New Orleans Saints.

It’s a Mac Jones problem

Several fans and analysts had opined that Mac Jones should be benched, in the run-up to Week 5. But Belichick did not listen. In their last 38-3 loss against the Detroit Lions, Mac Jones played one of the worst games of his career. The third-year QB completed just 12 of the 21 pass attempts that he made. He scored zero touchdowns and rewarded the Lions with 2 interceptions. Two of his turnovers resulted in touchdowns for the Lions.

Now, he seems to have outdone himself. His predecessor and 7x SB MVP had only given 4 pick-sixes whenever he played at Gillette Stadium in his entire career, having played 23 seasons. Mac Jones matched the legend in just three years. His pick-six in the first quarter against the Saints was his fourth at Gillette Stadium. Fans had hoped that Jones would at least match Tom Brady’s legacy. But not in this way.
