Mac Jones will be the Patriots’ starting quarterback on Sunday against the Jets after taking 90% of first-team snaps in practice Wednesday, according to ESPN’s Field Yates.

It will be the second straight start for Jones, who got the nod in Monday night’s game against the Bears.

Jones lasted three drives and threw an interception after a pair of three outs.

Still, it was a small sample and backup Bailey Zappe didn’t fare much better. Zappe, who finished the game in place of Jones, led a pair of touchdown passes before throwing a pair of interceptions in the second half.

Zappe went 2-0 as a starter and nearly led New England to an upset against Green Bay while replacing an injured Jones and substitute Brian Hoyer.

When asked about the quarterback’s situation on Wednesday, Belichick told reporters he’ll see how practice goes. Apparently, that worked in Jones’ favor.
