The New England Patriots faced off against the Green Bay Packers the game would get suspended late in the fourth due to the injury of Rookie defensive back/kick returner Isaiah Bolden. The Patriots finished the game with 21 points in the fourth quarter, the Packers finished with 17. The Patriots are on to face the Tennessee Titans (Joint Practices have been canceled).
Kayshon Boutte (1)
The rookie out of LSU had himself a great game, two receptions for 49 yards and a touchdown. The route running of Boutte showed up in this game, catching a slant and hitting full speed then just simply out running the Packers defensive backs. Boutte was all smiles after his first NFL touchdown, showing off his version of the griddy after the score. You love to see that from the younger guys.
Mac Jones / Kendrick Bourne connection (2/3)
The third year quarterback Mac Jones had himself a pretty solid game. Kendrick Bourne was Jones favorite target, Bourne would record three receptions for 34 yards. Solid numbers for the veteran WR heading into his third season with New England. Mac Jones was hitting passes left and right making all the correct reads. Jones finished the game with six competitions out of nine attempts for 52 yards and a QBR of 86.3/a completion percentage of 66.7%. A great showing from Patriots third year QB, Mac Jones.
JJ Taylor (4)
JJ Taylor the shifty back would have himself a pretty solid game in the pass catching game and the rushing attack. The 5-foot-6 190 RB would have four rushing attempts for 29 yards and an overall average of 7.3 yards per carry. The shifty back sees daylight and hits full speed almost instantly, always spinning forward for extra yardage. Taylor would also see some screen passes thrown his direction, three receptions for 27 yards! An overall average of 9.0 yards a reception. JJ shined when given the opportunity.
Karver’s Final Thoughts:
The Patriots offense and defense both had very promising games, there were some really good moments then there were some really bad moments. At the end of the day, the health of Isaiah Bolden is most important. Glad to hear the young DB is okay after a very sad scene in Green Bay.
