Mac Jones hits Nelson Agholor for rare opening-drive Patriots score

MINNEAPOLIS -- New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones came out firing in Thursday night's game against the Minnesota Vikings.

After the Patriots fell behind 7-0 on the Vikings' opening drive, Jones let it rip, quickly putting together a five-play, 75-yard scoring drive that culminated in a 34-yard strike over the middle to receiver Nelson Agholor.

The Patriots had entered as one of three teams without an opening-drive touchdown this season (Jets and Panthers the others). It was also their first touchdown in the first quarter this season.

Jones' pass traveled 27 air yards, his deepest of the season and second deepest of his two-year NFL career.
