The Patriots’ offensive line was one of their biggest problems in 2023. Miami sacked Jones four times with seven hits as they demolished the young man. Jones has his flaws but it doesn’t help if he doesn’t have any protection. This is unforgivable in his third season.
It’s not as if the Patriots went through a complete rebuild either because they had a single transitional season before drafting Jones. This is their fourth season without Brady and it’s crazy that they’re in this predicament. Injuries indeed affected their O-line but it’s still not great (via Sports Illustrated).
