In the midst of the worst loss of his head-coaching career, Patriots coach Bill Belichick pulled starting quarterback Mac Jones with 3:41 remaining in the third quarter, saying it wasn't a benching and that Jones remains the team's No. 1 option.

"I didn't think there was any point of leaving him in the game," Belichick said after his New England Patriots were blown out by the Dallas Cowboys, 38-3, at AT&T Stadium.
