Who said the Patriots’ offense was boring?!
The Patriots unveiled multi-dimensional threat Marcus Jones on offense for the first time this season, and the results were spectacular. The third-round cornerback and speedster, who caught 15 passes for 137 yards and a touchdown in college at Houston, took a surprise screen pass for a 48-yard score in the first quarter on Thursday Night Football against the Buffalo Bills.
The ultra-speedy Jones weaved through a wave of defenders near the line of scrimmage then out-raced an angle to the end zone to the delight of Gillette Stadium.
Jones got his first touchdown a few weeks ago in electrifying fashion against the New York Jets, taking a punt back for a game-winning score in the waning seconds. Now, he has his first offensive score, and he did it in the biggest game of the Patriots’ season to this point.
Give Matt Patricia credit there: that’s a heck of a play call.
