Patriots hire former OC Bill O'Brien to get offense back on track

Trending News

New England surely hopes O’Brien will bring a blend of competence and creativity to an offense that finished 17th in the NFL in points per game and had the seventh-fewest yards per game. (The defense boosted the points-scored total with an NFL-high seven touchdowns.) And perhaps those measurements fail to represent New England’s off-year on offense.

Most notably, second-year quarterback Mac Jones regressed. He saw his stats decline in just about every category: completion percentage, yards per attempt, passing yards and touchdown totals. Jones’ regression led to a downturn for some of his favorite weapons, including tight end Hunter Henry and receivers Kendrick Bourne and Nelson Agholor — all of whom were hefty free-agent signings from the team’s big-spending 2022 offseason. 

Though the team did not name an offensive coordinator in 2022, Matt Patricia called plays for the unit and was widely considered the team’s leader on offense.
