After a lackluster past two games, Mac Jones and the New England Patriots got back on track Sunday afternoon with a convincing 50-10 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Jones who had turnover issues in the team’s previous two losses, bounced back with a three-touchdown performance as the Patriots secured its 10th win of the season.
Below are a few reactions from the NFL world from Jones’ performance:
Mac Jones is currently out-dueling the No. 1 pick while simultaneously breaking a franchise record from a previous No. 1 pick. https://t.co/3ubpGEFlKY

Mac Jones is 16-of-18 and counting. I'm not going to say he's smashed thru the rookie wall/defensive adjustments/cold weather/whatever else you want to blame, – not with the size of some of these windows – but he is putting the ball on the spot a high % of the time. Good sign.

I'm fairly certain this is the most effusive Bill Belichick has ever been about Mac Jones. https://t.co/NKq1GUg3LX
