Former East QB Bailey Zappe replaces Mac Jones early on Monday Night Football

Replaces Mac Jones After Early Struggles


VICTORIA, Texas- Victoria native Bailey Zappe has replaced Mac Jones after early struggles. Zappe in his first drive comes in and throws a quick touchdown pass to Jakobi Meyers to give New England their first score of the day.

On his second drive after a turnover by Bears QB Justin Fields, Zappe goes deep down the sideline to Davante Parker to set up another score. In a flash, Zappe and the Patriots would take the lead 14-10.

Despite shining in his first two starts, New England opted to start Jones over Zappe. As Troy Aikman put it, “The Pride of Victoria Texas”.
