Here’s What Bill Belichick Told Mac Jones After QB’s Pick-Six In Patriots Loss

The New England Patriots lost the game against the Dallas Cowboys despite taking it in overtime. Players tried really hard to win this one. It was a big struggle, but the Cowboys came out like winners. Head coach Bill Belichick talked to Mac Jones at one point of the game, and this is the motivational speech we all need in life.

“Just keep playing,” the first-rounder said in his apeparance on WEEI’s Merloni & Fauria. “Head up. It’s just part of the game. Of course you don’t want to throw a pick-six, but you’ve got to bounce back.”

Jones got the lesson and targeted Kendrick Bourne once again for a 75-yards touchdown pass.

“Of course I was pissed at first, but I kind of just cleaned my brain, hit the reset button,” the rookie explained. “That’s what I always do. I work really hard at that, and everyone on the team had my back.”

Bill Belichick wants Mac Jones and other players to do better

Trevon Diggs’ interception will be making headlines for a really long time. The Patriots could have won this game, but some of the key players weren’t completed.

“I definitely could have made a better throw, but it was the exact look we wanted,” Jones said on WEEI. “I don’t know. Just need to calm my feet down, step into my throw and deliver a good through and allow the guys to run with the ball. Some of my shorter throws were just a little off, and I’ll definitely make that a point of emphasis this week.

“My drops, I think, have been better on the deep stuff, but I need to improve on the short, quick-game stuff. So that’s something I can work on and focus on. Trust my training and just step into the throw and make it.”

The rookie was able to complete 15 of 21 passes for 229 yards and a couple of touchdowns and one interception. Not bad, huh?

The Patriots have four losses on the table and they really have to pay more attention to Belichick’s motivational speech. They want to make the playoffs this season. What does that mean? They need to try harder!
