Jones ha detto ai giornalisti durante una conferenza stampa che l'occhiolino è arrivato dopo Roberts, che ha trascorso quattro stagioni con i Patriots prima di firmare con i Dolphins in 2020, in realtà chiamato lo snap.
“It was just kind of fun and games,” Jones said with a smile. “It was just in the middle of the play. They actually like called out our play, so I was like, ‘Ah. Nice catch.’ It was just fun and games.”
Jones said he went through with the call anyway.
“I just stuck to what I was supposed to do. Sometimes they don’t know the answers either.”
The Patriots would lose 17-16 but Jones is already focusing on the Week 2 match contro il New York Jets.
“You can sit there and feel bad for yourself for a little bit because you’re a human and that’s what you’re supposed to do – or you’re in the wrong profession – but you’ve just gotta move on,” Egli ha detto.
“Così, 24-hour rule. Dopo 24 hours – for some people it’s less, but for me – after that just move on and play the next play. Play the next game. You’re only as good as your last game. We lost and that’s what people remember.”
