Patriots quarterback Mac Jones will try to end a drought for rookie quarterbacks in the NFL playoffs when the New England Patriots take on the AFC East rival Buffalo Bills in an NFL Super Wild Card Weekend game on Saturday night. The No. 15 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, Jones will attempt to become just the seventh rookie quarterback since 1950 to win a playoff game and the first since Russell Wilson in 2012. On Saturday, he’ll square off against Buffalo’s Josh Allen, who, like Jones, is one of six starting quarterbacks this weekend under the age of 27.
Kickoff is set for 8:15 p.m. ET. Buffalo is a five-point favorite in the latest Bills vs. Patriots odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while the Over-Under for total points scored is 43.5.
