NFL Picks: Bill Belichick

It didn't take long for Bill Belichick to send Mac Jones to the bench this Monday night. 

Jones, who just returned from an ankle injury, has been benched in place of Bailey Zappe in the second quarter of tonight's Bears vs. Patriots game. 

The former Alabama star threw a costly pick in Bears' territory before getting benched. He also didn't lead the Pats on any scoring drives. 

Mac Jones' 6th interception of the year. Threw a floater off his back foot. The "Zappe" cheers are getting loud

Bailey Zappe is now in the game. Believe it or not, it took him just a few plays to lead the Patriots on a scoring drive. 

Zappe comes in, and the result: 4 plays, 55 yards and a TD to Jakobi Meyers. Foxborough erupts

There doesn't appear to be a quarterback controversy in New England anymore. The Patriots are moving forward with Bailey Zappe.
