3. Mac Jones Finally Completes a Comeback
As noted, the Patriots came up just short in Weeks 1 and 2, losing 25-20 to the Eagles and 24-17 to the Dolphins. Both times Jones had the ball in his hands at the end of the game, but wasn’t able to bring New England back.
That’s been a theme throughout Jones’ career, unfortunately. He’s only had one game-winning drive and fourth-quarter comeback, and that was all the way back in 2021. When his team is down by a touchdown in the fourth, he’s 0-12.
That’s going to change eventually, however, and I think it finally happens this week. I expect Dallas to be winning for most of the game, but as we said New England’s defense will keep it close. The Pats will make a big stop late in the fourth (another Dak Prescott interception, perhaps?), giving Jones the chance to win the game.
And this time, he doesn’t blow it. Maybe he finds Hunter Henry in the end zone. Maybe he sets up a game-winning field goal by the rookie Chad Ryland. I’m not sure how he does it, but all I know is that he’s going to come through. He’s learned from his mistakes, and now he’s ready to deliver.
Plus you can always trust the Cowboys to screw things up, right?
