Erin Andrews’ video with Mac Jones caused something of a stir this weekend.
After a strong showing in his rookie season, Jones has struggled to find his footing at the helm of the New England Patriots’ offense over the past year and change.
Ahead of Sunday’s big game between the Patriots and Dallas Cowboys, Jones sat down with Andrews.
The pair’s interview was far-reaching and, as a result, caused a major stir prior to Jones’ Week 4 game.
Unfortunately, while Jones came off fine in his sit down with Andrews, the same couldn’t be said for his showing against Dallas.
Not only did Jones throw two interceptions on the day, he also fumbled once and was so bad that head coach Bill Belichick had to bench him.

It will be interesting to see where Jones goes from here. Statistically he isn’t terrible. He has thrown for 748 yards, five touchdowns and two interceptions while completing 64.8 percent of his passes in 2023.
But man does he make bad decisions. He just seems to lack a certain winning mentality that New England fans are used to seeing from the team’s quarterback. There is an argument to be made that Jones’ girlfriend’s provocative outfits to his games have been far more impressive than anything he has actually brought to the table this year.
As for Andrews, it is unsurprising that she found herself trending as well. Be it for the criticisms she received over her outfit last week or her wild wedding photos, she is a permanent fixture in the news cycle.

This was just the latest example of that.
Will Jones be able to get his and the Patriots’ season back on track? Time will tell, but if he doesn’t, this will likely be the last time he and Andrews ever do a sit-down of this nature.
