“So dirty!” – Eagles’ Darius Slay rips Mac Jones after Patriots QB’s controversial compilation of tackles comes to light
During the New England Patriots’ 18-22 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, midfielder Mac Jones was seen confusingly hitting the ball of a Bengals player. Many considered Jones’ play to be unethical and he should have been punished.
Following the release of the tackle video, a series of videos depicting Jones as a nasty player since his arrival in the league went viral. Darius Slay, star of the Philadelphia Eagles, also joined the theme.
Darius Slay also believes that New England Patriots Midfielder is a dirty game. Midfielders are often neglected because of such habits and defensive players across the league are certainly not happy with that.
Despite Jones’ tackle, the Patriots were unable to win the game as they watched the ball late in the fourth half in a winnable game.
The Patriots quarterback was teased last week for not making it Las Vegas raid player Chandler Jonesresulted in a loss for the New England Patriots.
Mac Jones is facing the heat
After losing two winnable games for two weeks in a row, the New England Patriots are in the water and will likely miss the knockout stages this season.
Mac Jones has failed to translate his game from a stellar rookie season to his second year in the league. A large part of that is down to the personnel on the Patriots’ coaching staff, but the former Alabama quarterback also looks unwell this season.
Jones has thrown 2,550 yards, nine touchdowns and eight interceptions in 12 games this season. He has a passer rating of 84.6. Back-up midfielder Bailey Zappe has replaced Jones in a number of games where he has played well. Many believed that Zappe should be given a nod to Jones, but he soon got his job back.
The Patriots’ next will be the Miami Dolphins and this will be a big game for both teams. The Dolphins are on a four-game losing streak and will be looking to bounce back.
Whichever team loses that game, their playoff ambitions will be hit hard. Both Tua Tagovailoa and Mac Jones play for Alabama and it will be interesting to see which of them will come out on top in Week 17.
