Julian Edelman celebrates Patriots' win vs. Dolphins with Jaws-themed Instagram post

If you were to compare the New England Patriots' performance Sunday to a marine animal, it would be a great white shark.

Therefore, it was fitting that Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman celebrated his team's impressive 43-0 win over the rival Miami Dolphins by posting a Jaws-themed picture to his Twitter and Instagram accounts. Check it out in the post below:

Edelman tallied four receptions for 51 yards and was one of seven players to catch at least one pass from Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. New England's rushing attack also was much-improved from Week 1, gaining 136 yards and scoring two touchdowns.

The real story of the game was the Patriots' defense, which has held opponents to just three points and a 5-for-27 mark on third downs over the first two weeks of the season. 

The Patriots' dominance should continue next week at Gillette Stadium when the defending Super Bowl champions host the New York Jets, who will be without young quarterback Sam Darnold because of illness.

Report: Jaguars trade CB Jalen Ramsey to Rams

Report: Jaguars trade CB Jalen Ramsey to Rams

One month after requesting a trade from the Jacksonville Jaguars, Jalen Ramsey got his wish.

The star cornerback was traded to the Los Angeles Rams on Tuesday for two first-round draft picks in 2020 and 2021 and a fourth-rounder in 2021, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The news comes on the heels of the Rams trading veteran CB Marcus Peters to the Baltimore Ravens and placing Aqib Talib on injured reserve on Tuesday.

Ramsey's move to the NFC is great news for the Patriots, as New England won't have to worry about the two-time Pro Bowler helping out the Kansas City Chiefs' scuffling defense after they were rumored to be one of his suitors.
