Pats wide receiver Jakobi Meyers is speaking out after committing one of the worst plays in NFL history.
On Sunday, Meyers cost the Pats the game when he decided to throw the ball back towards Mac Jones on the final play of the game which eventually got intercepted by Chandler Jones for a game-ending touchdown.
This is not hyperbole.
