Carolina Panthers fans are furious with Mac Jones and it's easy to see why. On Sunday, Jones grabbed Brian Burns' leg after he forced a fumble and twisted him, resulting in Burns falling to the ground in a ton of pain.

People are blasting Jones for what sure looked to be a dirty play. Well, the Pats QB has come out and defended himself, claiming he was just trying to make a tackle.

Video of the play really isn't a good look for Jones. While he may have indeed been trying to make a tackle, he needs to be smarter than this.
