Showdown of rookie QBS one-sided as Patriots roll
Mac Jones was smart and efficient, Damien Harris and James White had touchdown runs, and New England took advantage of a nightmarish outing by Zach Wilson in a 25-6 victory over the host
New York Jets.
With the spotlight on the Mac vs.
Zach matchup of rookie first-round quarterbacks, it was Jones who shined as Wilson was intercepted four times — twice by cornerback J.C. Jackson.
Nick Folk, a former Jet, kicked his franchise-record 32nd straight field goal for the Patriots (1-1). New York (0-2) lost its 11th straight September game.
■ Broncos 23, Jaguars 13: At Jacksonville, Fla., wide receiver Courtland Sutton had nine catches for 159 yards for Denver (2-0), accounting for nearly half of Teddy Bridgewater’s 328 yards passing. Top draft pick Trevor Lawrence threw two interceptions for Jacksonville (0-2), which lost its 17th straight.
■ Browns 31, Texans 21: At Cleveland, Baker Mayfield overcame a left shoulder injury to throw a TD pass and run for a score for Cleveland (1-1), going 10-for-10 after a first-half interception. Houston
(1-1) moved the ball with ease until losing quarterback Tyrod Taylor to injury.
