WATCH: Patriots QB Mac Jones take top off defense with 45-yard dime

·1 min read

The New England Patriots and Carolina Panthers were engaged in a defensive battle on Friday night. That was until Patriots quarterback Mac Jones delivered an absolute dime to wideout Nelson Agholor down the  sideline on a 45-yard completion.

Agholor is one of many receivers looking to make an impact for a deep wide receivers room. He had difficulties with consistency in 2021, catching 37 passes for 473 yards and three touchdowns. New England made it a point in the offseason to add new faces to the group, which may make things difficult for Agholor this season.

However, he made the most of his opportunities on Friday night, catching a deep pass from Jones to set up the Patriots’ first touchdown of the game.

The touchdown may loom large, as New England tries to get their first win of the preseason.
