  • Patriots Not Ready To Commit To Starting QB For Week 8

    New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick wasn't ready to name a starting quarterback for the Week 8 game against the New York Jets after the team's blowout loss to the Chicago Bears on Monday night in which starter Mac Jones was pulled after three series in favor of rookie Bailey Zappe. Jones' final play was an interception, but Belichick insisted he wasn't benched and would have returned in the second half if the game had been closer. Belichick said they intended for both Jones and Zappe to play on Monday and informed both players of the plan before the game, with Jones' recovery from a high-ankle sprain "a factor" in the decision. Zappe led back-to-back touchdown drives when he entered the game, but he also threw two interceptions in the second half. It seems likely that the Pats will go back to Jones this weekend, but we officially have a QB controversy in New England.

  • Bailey Zappe Throws Two Interceptions In Relief

    New England Patriots quarterback Bailey Zappe completed 14-of-22 passes for 185 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in Monday's 33-14 loss to the Chicago Bears. Zappe entered the game in relief for Mac Jones, who was benched for throwing an interception during the second quarter. The 23-year-old started hot, connecting with Jakobi Meyers for a 30-yard touchdown, and led New England to another score during the team's next drive to close the first half. Zappe faded in the second half, throwing for 76 yards and two picks. There is quarterback controversy in New England, and it remains to be seen who will draw the start between Jones or Zappe against the New York Jets in Week 8.

  • Bailey Zappe Replaces Mac Jones On Monday Night

    New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones was replaced during the second quarter by rookie Bailey Zappe in his team's Monday night game against the Chicago Bears. Jones completed three of his six passes for 13 yards and one interception before getting benched in favor of Zappe following the pick early in the second quarter. Zappe came in and instantly got the offense moving, passing for 54 yards and a touchdown on his first offensive series in the second quarter. A quarterback controversy could be brewing in New England as Zappe has vastly outplayed Jones on the field in 2022.

  • Bailey Zappe Throws For Over 300 Yards In Win Over Browns

    New England Patriots quarterback Bailey Zappe completed 24 of 34 passes for 309 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's 38-15 win over the Cleveland Browns. The 23-year-old started Sunday's game against Cleveland when teammate Mac Jones (ankle) was ruled out. He set career-highs and led the Patriots to their second straight victory in Week 6. The fourth-round rookie connected with Hunter Henry for a 31-yard touchdown in the third quarter and found Tyquan Thornton for a two-yard touchdown for his two scores in Week 6. Zappe has played well and would be in line for another start if Jones cannot suit up against the Chicago Bears on Monday Night.

  • Bailey Zappe In Line To Start Week 6

    New England Patriots rookie quarterback Bailey Zappe is expected to start against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday afternoon, according to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN. First-string quarterback Mac Jones (ankle) isn't quite ready to return, meaning Zappe will make his second consecutive start. He led the Patriots to victory in his first NFL start last week, completing 80.1 percent of his passes for 188 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. He falls into the QB3 range in fantasy football this week.

  • Bailey Zappe Expected To Start Against Detroit

    New England Patriots quarterback Bailey Zappe is expected to make his first career start against Detroit on Sunday. Mac Jones (ankle) is doubtful, and Brian Hoyer (concussion) is on injured reserve, so head coach Bill Belichick will turn to the 2022 fourth-round pick to handle things under center. The 23-year-old came in for relief when Hoyer went down in Week 4 against Green Bay and finished with 99 yards and a touchdown off 66.7% passing. Although the Lions defense has allowed the most fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks, Zappe shouldn't be in any lineup in Week 5 unless managers have nowhere else to turn.

  • Bailey Zappe Will Start Week 5 Against The Lions

    New England Patriots quarterback Bailey Zappe will start in Sunday's contest against the Detroit Lions. The Patriots placed quarterback Brian Hoyer (concussion) on injured reserve, and starter Mac Jones (ankle) is doubtful to suit up in Week 5. Zappe threw for 99 yards and a touchdown in relief in the Week 4 loss to the Green Bay Packers. The Lions' defense has been shredded through the air and ranks 31st in pass DVOA this season. Despite the plus matchup, look for the Patriots to lean heavily on the run game this Sunday, making Zappe an option mainly two quarterback league formats.
