The Carolina Panthers and New England Patriots both entered their Week 9 game at 4-4 and needing a win to keep up in the playoff hunt. That foreshadowed what could be a chippy game between two squads desperate to emerge victorious.

Rookie quarterback Mac Jones embraced this spirit, but went a bit too far by making a dangerous play on Brian Burns.

Burns came off the edge in the first quarter to strip-sack the rookie. He then tried to scoop up the ball, but Jones grabbed onto the defender's leg and appeared to twist his ankle while on the ground.

It's nothing but a dirty play by Jones, and it could've resulted in something major if things went wrong. You simply can't take your frustrations out in that way.

Burns will hopefully return the favor in some way by the time their Week 9 matchup concludes.
