The New England Patriots are tied for the second-worst record in the NFL, with a 2-8 mark through the first ten games. There are serious questions about the team’s future, both immediate and long term, and the quarterback that they drafted 10th overall three years ago has been benched mid-game three times already in 2023. And according to reports out of Boston, Mac Jones has apparently lost the faith of the rest of the players in the locker room.

The first two years of Jones’ career looked promising enough to at least keep him around and continue his development. He qualified for the Pro Bowl as a rookie, throwing 22 touchdowns to 13 interceptions and leading the Patriots to the playoffs in the first post-Tom Brady season. But both his statistics and winning percentage dipped in 2022, and things have gotten even worse during the first half of 2023.
Jones has a touchdown-to-interception ratio of 1:1, finishing the first ten weeks with ten of each. His ten picks are tied for the second most in the league with Jordan Love and just one behind Josh Allen, and he throws for fewer yards per game than Zach Wilson. He has been benched three times at various points throughout the season, most recently for the final, potentially game-winning drive during the game in Frankfurt last weekend.
