“He’s playing at an unbelievable level. When you compare him to guys across the league, I think he’s the best. If not, he’s certainly in that top two or three. That’s huge for us on offense, huge for me as a quarterback being able to count on him playing at that level down after down, game after game. He deserves a lot of credit certainly. It’s no surprise to us,” Jones cited.
