The New England Patriots successfully limited the former Thursday night, holding Dalvin Cook to 42 yards on 22 carries. During that performance, Jefferson surpassed ex-Patriot and Viking Randy Moss to set the NFL record for receiving yards in a player’s first three seasons. Stopping Jefferson clearly was a priority for the Patriots. Jefferson capped the Vikings’ opening drive with a 6-yard touchdown, then proceeded to pull down receptions of 17, 21, 36 and 37 yards. Between Diggs and Gabe Davis next week, it’ll be a very similar challenge to what we got (Thursday night) with Jefferson.

Until Jones’ play or Belichick’s words say otherwise, he’ll continue to be viewed as a possible midseason replacement. @KP_BoothDo you see any chance of long-term effects on Mac from the fans turning on him so quickly? And Jones wasn’t even playing poorly! The crowd reaction was a bad look for the Patriots fanbase, and Belichick deserves criticism for placing Jones into that primetime powder keg. The Patriots are deeper at receiver than they are at tackle, and I think Agholor, as a player, would be a more attractive trade target.1 month ago NESN
