Mac Jones may have lost more than his job on Monday night, he might’ve also lost a lot of respect from players around the league.
The Patriots quarterback was back in game action after suffering a high-ankle sprain a few weeks ago, and his mobility was on full display in the first half of the “Monday Night Football” matchup vs. the Bears.
Jones was running a lot out of the pocket and doing a lot of sliding, but one slide in particular upset a lot of people. The below slide showed Jones kick out his lead leg in a curious motion and connecting with the ball sack area of Bears safety Jaquan Brisker.
Peyton Manning reacted to the low blow on the ManningCast.
“D-lineman don’t like this,” Manning said. “You can’t hit the quarterback, but yet he can kick you right in the jewels. That’s why d-lineman don’t like quarterbacks.”

Brisker would gain the ultimate revenge, picking off a Jones pass on the same drive that he injured his man-parts. The QB would then get benched for the remainder of the game.
Jones finished with 13 passing yards and one interception. New England went on to lose 33–14.
