If you saw the touchdown live or watched a replay, you probably saw the CBS broadcast’s view of the play. The NFL tweeted a different camera angle that provides another awesome look at the memorable punt return.

Jones was an excellent kick returner in college at SMU and that part of his skill set was a huge reason why the Patriots selected him in the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft.
Jones ranks second in the league with 16.6 yards per punt return, and his 84 yard return on Sunday is the longest of the season for any player.
Special teams have been critical to the Patriots’ success over the last two decades, and Jones could be that unit’s next star.
