Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots sit at 2-4 following a heartbreaking 35-29 overtime loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 6.
This is a team that lost three extremely tight games in the final moments.
Mac Jones finished the night throwing 15 of 21 for 229 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. Damien Harris carried the ball 18 times for 101 yards and a touchdown while Rhamondre Stevenson had 62 total yards and a rushing touchdown.
New England’s defense only allowed three total points on the Cowboys’ final three drives of the first half, while carrying that momentum into the second half. It all came down to CeeDee Lamb’s game-winning touchdown in overtime that pushed the Cowboys to a 5-1 record.
Here’s how Patriots fans felt about it.
Mac Jones continues to receive love from fans
A full two minutes of football were played after the Mac Jones pick. Mac helped them regain the lead, the defense helped the Cowboys get into FG range. Let's stop blaming a rookie QB for things that are out of his control. https://t.co/Xflqr2S2Dc

I understand they wanna limit the turnovers/mistakes, but they gotta stop being so damn conservative with Mac Jones, he's gonna make some mistakes (like he did late in this game) but he'll learn from 'em. All that money spent on WRs/TEs, USE THEM!

Don’t ever say I won’t bet against my own team 😤
Money is money, can’t let that get in the way right? 💰🔒

Also, Mac Jones is a good QB and will be good for the Pats.

But, fans are losing hope
These Patriots losses are getting harder and harder to swallow because we’re playing good enough to win, but consistently coming up short.. Don’t know what the remedy is, but I hope it comes soon. #ForeverNE

For the first time in my life I am completely defeated as a patriot fan no hope in the coaching staff and the majority of the players

Bruh we got comfortable. Stopped our own moment from the first half @Patriots. I hope we’ve found our identity
