JC Jackson is one of the best players on the New England Patriots roster, and the team celebrated his most recent interception. The Baltimore Ravens entered Sunday’s game against the Patriots with a 6-2 record. Most NFL analysts predicted a win for quarterback Lamar Jackson and his team. Well, head coach Bill Belichick and his defensive players were ready to prove them wrong.
Lamar and his team had a good game, but it wasn’t enough . On the team’s last drive of the first half of the game, Jackson picked off Jackson deep down field. The third-year Patriot had his fifth straight game with an interception. Guess what… That’s a new franchise record. Jackson’s league-leading sixth pick of the season made for the 14th of his pro career. This is actually the most interceptions for any player since Jackson became part of the NFL family in 2018.
JC Jackson to hit another interception
The Patriots have the best cornerback duo in the NFL. Veteran cornerback Stephon Gilmore has had a key role on the Patriots roster, and Jackson has just become a key contributor for the team. New England will rely on the powerful duo in the next few games.
Jackson enjoys his moments of fame. But he won’t waste too much time celebrating. The talented player will use this record as an interception to do better next week. New England needs his interceptions to shut down quarterbacks on opposite teams. Let’s hope that he will get a chance to grab another one.
The Patriots popped in the win column again and this will motivate players to try even harder in the next few games. Winning two straight games sure feels well, and the Patriots better keep those wins coming. Head coach Bill Belichick is confident about his team and he is well prepared for every possible scenario.
New England lost four straight games following the coronavirus outbreak in October. But, Newton returned to his normal game and he is ready to prove doubters wrong. Newton won the 2015 NFL MVP award for a good reason.
