Mac Jones will lead the Patriots against Justin Herbert and the Chargers in their Week 8 matchup Sunday at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif.
Jones completed 24 of 36 passes for 307 yards and two touchdowns in New England’s 54-13 rout of the Jets in Week 7. The 23-year-old rookie quarterback will look to make more strides this week against LA’s defense, but New England (3-4) will likely have more success running the ball; the Chargers are 31st in the NFL against the run.

Los Angeles (4-2) is coming off a bye and Herbert is coming off one of his worst performances. He threw for a season-low 195 yards, with a touchdown and an interception (season-worst 67.8 passer rating), in LA’s 34-6 loss at the Ravens in Week 6.
