Will Mac Jones Look To Target Patriots Wideout N’Keal Harry More Often?

'Sometimes I just have to give him a shot to get a chance to get the ball'


Mac Jones and N’Keal Harry played well for the New England Patriots in Week 10.

In a dominant win over the Cleveland Browns, the rookie quarterback earned the highest completion rate (82.6%) and passer rating (142.1) of his young career and watched his odds for the NFL’s Offensive Rookie of the Year Award improve. All the while, the 6-foot-4 receiver served a quieter role in New England’s run game making some great blocks.

Harry had just one catch for 26 yards after a connection with backup Brian Hoyer when the Patriots had put things away. The physical game might earn him some more targets from Jones.

“He’s a big, physical receiver and he’ll make those big-time catches,” Jones said Monday on WEEI’s “Merloni & Fauria,” as transcribed by Ryan Hannable. “Sometimes I just have to give him a shot to get a chance to get the ball and whenever it’s thrown his way he usually comes down with it.”

Harry ended up being the team’s second-highest-graded run blocker, according to Pro Football Focus, trailing only right tackle Trent Brown.

The former first-rounder may have just added some more value for New England’s surging offense.
