Patriots’ Winners and Losers: Week 14

Advertisement

A 21-game home winning streak ends. The New England Patriots took a tough loss against the Kansas City Chiefs 23-16 to fall to 10-3 on the season.

The team is having trouble producing offense on a consistent basis and quarterback Tom Brady looked flustered the entire night.

The defense kept the team in the game with a Devin McCourty fumble late in the third quarter.

However the team came up short in a game marred with referee mistakes.

Here are your winners and losers.

Winner: J.C. Jackson

Jackson was everywhere covering Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill with ease as the team’s No.2 corner over Jason McCourty.

Early in the game, Jackson undercut a route for an easy interception to set up the Patriots in great field position.

This is the second time that the Maryland alum was tasked with covering the All-Pro tight end and did not disappoint.

A definite winner.

Loser: Shaq Mason

At one time a great run blocker, Mason continues to decline before our very eyes.

After Jackson’s interception, Chris Jones dismantled the Georgia Tech alum making Brady uncomfortable and squandering an opportunity to go up by two scores early.

The team avoided running to the right side for the majority of the game because of the abysmal play of both Marcus Cannon and Mason.

Push: Special Teams

You give up a blocked kick, your special teams unit ends up on this list for leaving crucial points on the table.

With an offense that is struggling, you need as many points as you can get and with a coach that takes more pride in his special teams unit than anybody, that is a surprising unforced error.

The punt block by Nate Ebner softens the blow a little bit and keeps them away from the loser column.

Loser: Jonathan Jones

The Auburn alum was undressed by Tyreek Hill on two straight targets including a touchdown that put the Chiefs ahead to start the second quarter.

Jones had success against Hill in last year’s AFC Championship. This game was the polar opposite for No.31.

Hill was open and taking advantage of Jones for the majority of the game including an open opportunity in the end zone later in the first half.

His second worst play came late in the third quarter when Hill caught a pass and Jones never closed the gap to make the tackle giving up yet another first down.

Not the slot corner’s best game.

Winner: Julian Edelman

The only offensive weapon that seemed to be able to do anything for the Patriots.

Julian Edelman was the recipient of the Patriot’s longest offensive play of the game and only touchdown for the team in the first half.

The Chiefs then doubled Edelman the rest of the game making the Kent State alum have to work for every other reception he had.

Edelman cannot carry this offense. Slack needs to be picked up elsewhere or the team is going one and done in the postseason.

Loser: Rookie Wide Receivers

The young weapons had another mediocre game.

Meyers’ great preseason looks like a distant memory and Harry got robbed of a touchdown early in the fourth quarter.

James White completed a pass to Jakobi Meyers to put the Patriots inside Chiefs territory late in the game but to no avail.

The Patriots are going to have to make an effort to use Phillip Dorsett II. and Mohamed Sanu if they are going to have success.

The Detroit Lions are looking like one of the best teams in the NFL, but there’s always room for improvement. The team arguably lacks depth at certain points on the roster, and there are still several veterans on the market with plenty of gas in the tank to help with that.
