When the game started, the Patriots seemed optimistic. Jones even made a first-down run in the opening minutes of the first quarter. But not long after, the Colts defensive tackle DeForest Buckner sacked him. The Patriots could not recover from it. The Colts Nyheim Hines scored a touchdown which put them in the lead.

New England looked shaken up because Jones could not complete the passage towards the end of the first quarter. The wide receiver Jakobi Meyers dropped the ball. With just 21 seconds left on the clock, Jake Bailey tried to punt the ball. It was intercepted, and the ball was free. The Colts recovered the ball for a touchdown. E. J. Speed lived up to his last name and recovered the ball in a heartbeat.

Jones talks about his performance after the game

Two more quarters after the interception, the Patriots lost 27-17. Jones was frustrated with his poor performance. In the post-match press conference, he said, “I just threw it right to him. It was a good play, but unacceptable. You can’t win until you stop from losing.” Jones adds, “I mean, I handed the ball to the guy. I did that twice, and that hurt us. I thought the defense played pretty well, and I just shot them in the foot myself by giving them the short field and giving them the ball. That’s just my fault, and I’ll learn from it.”
