New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones faced criticism for the low block he put on Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Eli Apple after linebacker Germaine Pratt recovered a fumble and attempted to run it back for a touchdown in Saturday’s game.
Jones was running down to try to catch Pratt, who was well on his way to the end zone, and saw Apple coming up and decided to go low on the defensive back’s legs. The play was eventually blown dead but Apple didn’t forget about it. He called it a "dirty play" after the game.
The second-year quarterback didn’t receive a flag on the play but it reportedly caught the eye of the NFL.
