The Patriots trailed 27-7 in the first half but roared back for the 34-27 victory.

The rally included a blocked punt early in the third quarter by Jones. His teammate, Bryson Jones, then returned it 17 yards for a touchdown.

Lester Jones went on to make a whopping 13 tackles and recorded two quarterback sacks. And if that wasn’t enough, he also forced three fumbles and recovered a fumble, with a tackle for loss to spare.
