Patriots set to face Daniel Jones in Week 6 after Giants' QB shakeup

Patriots set to face Daniel Jones in Week 6 after Giants' QB shakeup

Has Eli Manning already played his final game against the New England Patriots?

Manning's Giants visit the Patriots in Week 6 this season, but it sounds like the veteran quarterback will be on the bench, as New York officially named rookie Daniel Jones its starting quarterback Tuesday.

It seemed possible that Jones could take Manning's job at some point this season after the Giants drafted him No. 6 overall. But it's still surprising to see a changing of the guard after just two weeks.

Manning wasn't getting the job done, though, as New York has scored just 31 points amid an 0-2 start. Jones offers promising upside, which the Patriots got a glimpse of in their preseason finale.

Jones now is in line to face New England when it counts, as he joins Luke Falk, Josh Allen and Case Keenum in an uninspiring lineup of QBs set to play the Patriots.

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.
