Mac Jones Makes NFL History With Two-Completion Performance vs. Bills

Mac Jones's rookie season took another wild turn Monday night as the Patriots traveled to Buffalo for a matchup against the Bills. 

Swirling winds at Highmark Stadium caused New England coach Bill Belichick to turn back the clock in the AFC East matchup, with the Patriots' finishing the night with 222 rushing yards on 46 carries. As for Jones, let's just say he should have more productive performances over the course of his NFL career.

Jones finished Monday night with just two completions on three attempts, tallying 19 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions. And the rookie made some NFL history in the process. Jones is now the first quarterback in the last 30 years to win a game with three or fewer pass attempts, and he is just the fourth player this century to register a win with two or fewer completions.

Jones didn't seem to mind his lack of production Monday. He noted his trust in Belichick and offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels postgame, telling the media, "Josh has a plan for everything."

New England advanced to 9–4 in 2021 with Monday's win. It leads the AFC East and holds the conference's top seed entering Week 14.
