Patriots QB Mac Jones threw a 1-yard touchdown pass to Mike Gesicki with 12 seconds remaining to lift’ New England to a 29-25 win over the Bills, making Bill Belichick the third coach in NFL history with 300 regular-season victories.

Belichick only trails Pro Football Hall of Famers Don Shula (328) and George Halas (318). Including playoffs, Belichick has 331 victories, trailing Shula (347) and ahead of Halas (324).

“I mean, it’s great. I’m really more focused on our team and this year,” Belichick said. “We’ll worry about that later.”

Jones completed 25 of 30 passes for 272 yards and two touchdowns as the Patriots snapped a three-game losing streak. It was the second fourth-quarter come from behind victory of Jones’ three-year career.

During the Patriots’ losing streak, Jones threw five picks and no touchdown passes.

“I always believe in myself,” Jones said. “I’m not going to sit up here and say it every time. But I do believe in myself and I do that through work and all that stuff. … You go as your quarterback goes. For me, it’s continuing to be the same guy every day and just be Mac.”

Josh Allen was 27 of 41 for 265 yards with two touchdowns and scrambled for a score. He also threw an interception that led to New England’s first touchdown. The Bills scored touchdowns on only two of their four red-zone opportunities. 

Including the 2021 playoffs, the Bills had won the previous four meetings with New England.
