Mac Jones appears to have a deflated picture of the playoff loss in his locker

A largely promising season for rookie quarterback Mac Jones and the Patriots ended disappointingly with a 47-17 playoff loss to the Buffalo Bills.

The game was even more unbalanced than the score would indicate, and it somewhat spoiled a season of growth and improvement. Although Jones has moved on to second year, it seems he hasn’t forgotten that setback.

In his locker, there is a photo that seems to show him going away discouraged after this loss. It also looks like “47-17” is written on the photo, a reminder of what a blowout it was.

Jones hasn’t spoken to the media since the image first surfaced after the Patriots’ preseason opener on Thursday, but all signs point to the photo as daily motivation.

Jones threw two interceptions that game as the Bills took an early lead and never looked back.
