Their Week 7 victory over the Jets marked the first time that Jones and the Patriots win at home in the 2021 NFL season.

Jones and the Patriots entered their recent faceoff against the Jets as the heavy favorites to win the game. Though most people expected them to beat the Jets, they were still surprised by the Patriots' offensive explosion on Sunday night. In a recent interview, Jones said that he's happy to see the fruits of their hardwork, but he believes the Patriots are yet to show their full potential.

"We’re not satisfied," Jones said, as quoted by Mass Live. "We’ve got plenty of games left, and we’re excited we finally kind of saw a little bit of a result that was good, and we’ve just got to stick to the formula and stick to the process."

Jones undeniably deserves to take most of the credit for the Patriots' 54-point explosion against the Jets in Week 7 of the 2021 NFL season. In his first victory in New England, the 23-year-old posted 24-of-36 passing for 307 yards with two touchdowns and zero interceptions. With his performance against the Jets, Jones became the fourth rookie quarterback in NFL history with at least 225 passing yards and a touchdown pass in five consecutive games, according to Oliver Thomas of Forbes on Twitter.

The historical club also included Dak Prescott of the Dallas Cowboys, Justin Herbert of the Los Angeles Chargers, and Deshaun Watson of the Houston Texans.

Jones and the Patriots started their game against the Patriots strong, posting combined 41 points in the first two quarters. In his interview, Jones revealed that it was part of their strategy to be aggressive at the start of the game.

"We’ve made an emphasis to start fast, and that’s what every team wants to do when they get the ball, try and score a field goal or a touchdown," Jones said. "When we do that, it’s good, and when we don’t, we just have to keep playing."

The Jets didn't just suffer an embarrassing defeat at the hands of Jones and the Patriots on Sunday night, but they also lost rookie quarterback Zach Wilson to an injury. With more than 12 minutes left in the fourth quarter, Wilson was escorted out of the field after going down with a right knee injury.

Wilson managed to go to the locker room on his own, but he was unable to return to the game. After he got injured, the Jets used Mike White as their signal-caller.
