Bill Belichick-coached New England Patriots suffered the narrowest of defeats at the hands of Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 4. The 6-time Super Bowl champions put up a brave fight but couldn’t prevent a 19-17 loss at the Gillette Stadium in front of home fans.

But LB Jamie Collins, who re-signed for the Patriots for a 3rd stint earlier this week, came through and helped spark a comeback which was completed by rookie quarterback Mac Jones in the 4th quarter.

New England Patriots rookie, Mac Jones, did not have his ‘best day’ at office in Week 5 against the Houston Texans. But, in conclusion, he did enough to guide his team to an ugly 25-22 come-from-behind win on the road. The former Alabama quarterback threw for 231 yards with 1 passing TD against 1 interception.

But it was kicker Nick Folk’s game-winning chip shot from 21 yards that sealed the deal for the visitors. Bill Belichick’s boys rallied in the 4th quarter, scoring 10 points on the trot to tie the game.
