Jakobi Meyers might want to tone it down before he finds himself on the trade block.
The Patriots entered their Monday night matchup against the Bears with a bit of a QB debacle as Mac Jones was returning from injury, but Bailey Zappe had been playing great while he was gone.
Jones would ultimately start the game, but the offense got off to a slow start, and the home crowd let out some boos as well as some chants for Zappe. Following a 2nd quarter interception, Jones was taken out of the game. Zappe entered and immediately electrified the offense, leading two touchdown drives.
Jones stayed on the bench for the rest of the night, and the Patriots took a 33-14 thumping at the hands of the Chicago Bears, who entered the night at 2-4.
One person who didn’t enjoy seeing Jones go through all of that was receiver Jakobi Meyers.

“Not even as a football player. I mean, it’s tough as a man to see somebody who worked so hard kind of get that kind of treatment,” Meyers said. “But at the end of the day, we’re all trying to feed our families, so we’ve got to go out there and make plays with whoever’s throwing it.”
“Not even the coaches, just everybody. The crowd, all of it. It was an ugly situation, in my opinion,” Meyers said.
Meyers had a touchdown catch on a pass from Bailey Zappe. He finished with two catches for 34 yards on two targets.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
