And it may be the last pass Jones makes of the night that Bayley Zappe, who started the last two games for the Patriots, entered the game. He immediately led a pass that resulted in a 30-yard touchdown by Jacobi Meyers.

There was debate all week about who would start this game on Monday night, as both Jones and Zappe took first-team representatives.
