New England Patriots shut out Atlanta Falcons in Thursday Night Football  thrashing as Mac Jones shines

During the game between the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons, Mac Jones throws a pass. After a dismal year following Tom Brady’s departure to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Bill Belichick’s New England Patriots appear to be one of the finest teams in the NFL once again. Their most recent exhibition of dominance came on Thursday Night Football when they thrashed the lowly Atlanta Falcons 25-0 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. While the Patriots’ defense shut down Matt Ryan and the Falcons, rookie quarterback Mac Jones threw the game’s only offensive score in the first quarter.

Atlanta quarterback Ryan was sacked four times and intercepted twice. After being removed late in the game with a commanding lead, the Patriots defense intercepted backups Josh Rosen and Feleipe Franks once each. After the match, Jones lauded the whole team’s effort, which was the Patriots’ fifth straight win. “It was a wonderful team win, and the defense stood up and performed extremely well,” said the 23-year-old.

“The aim is to score one point more than the other squad, and we were fortunate enough to achieve so. It’s challenging to win in the NFL, and nothing can be taken for granted. You need to examine the tape and improve, but at the end of the day, the only thing that matters is scoring one more point than the other squad.” Jones’ impressive start to life in the NFL continues with this victory.

He has developed from week to week since being picked No. 15 in this year’s draught, and with Thursday’s victory, he became only the third quarterback in NFL history to win his first five road starts, joining Dak Prescott and Ben Roethlisberger. Jones was one of five quarterbacks selected in a competitive 2021 draught class. While his Patriots are 7-4 this season, the rest of the league’s combined record is 5-24 as of Week 11. It’s the first time Atlanta has been shut out at home since a 33-0 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in 1988.

The result pushes the Patriots closer to the top of the AFC rankings as they try to make the playoffs, while the Falcons fall to 4-6 after their second straight humiliation.

Following the victory, Belichick referred to it as a “short but good week.

“Everyone put in a good effort. Coaches, players on staff, obviously on a short week,” he explained. “The Falcons played extremely fiercely today, and it’s great to come away with a win.” “Defensively, we made some big plays. Nick (Folk) made some kicks, and we scored enough points offensively to pull ahead and win. We hope that we’ll be able to play a little more consistently. We had far too many penalties. Kill us in the rematch. Kill us aggressively.” “We need to improve our performance there. However, it’s nice to come down here and have a win and have a couple of days here this weekend to collect our breath and then be ready to continue.
