Mac Jones might be a dirty player and we have the footage to back it up.
The New England Patriots quarterback was already being called out for an apparent dirty slide when he slid on Monday night and raised his leg to kick Bears defensive back Jaquan Brisker in an area no player wants to be kicked.
That wasn’t the only questionable slide.
Later in the game, he appeared to target the same player after a slide.
We should also remember last season when he appeared to gator-roll Brian Burns’ leg.
Aside from his obvious dirty play, Jones is set to start for the Patriots when they visit the New York Jets on Sunday. He had missed three games due to a high ankle sprain suffered in Week 3, but returned for Week 7 against Chicago.
When directly asked whether he was going to start on Sunday, Jones responded, “I plan to start every game that I’ve ever played in, whether that was in peewee football or third-string at Alabama. I always try to prepare as the starter. Like I say, if it’s one snap or 70, I’ll be ready to go. That’s all you can do, right? You can’t really control anything else. I work really hard and put myself in position to do that, and yes, I think I deserve that.”
Jones had started Monday’s loss to the Bears, but was replaced by Zappe after three drives.
