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.

Ramsey was quick to share a photo of himself in his new uniform on Twitter:

Tom Brady reacts to Myles Garrett incident: Bill Belichick uses it as 'teaching moments'

Tom Brady reacts to Myles Garrett incident: Bill Belichick uses it as 'teaching moments'

Just about every NFL player is being asked for his reaction to the crazy incident in Thursday night's game between the Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers, and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady couldn't escap the question Friday.

Browns defensive end Myles Garrett has been suspended indefinitely by the league for taking off Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph's helmet and hitting him over the head with it. 

Brady told reporters in his Friday press conference that Patriots head coach Bill Belichick uses those types of situations to remind his players of what to do and what not to do when tempers flare.

"Coach Belichick tries to use it as teaching moments," Brady said. "(He) talks about not throwing punches, not touching the referees and staying on the sidelines."

How hard is it to stay disciplined?

"It's an emotional game," Brady said. "I think I got a penalty in 2002 -- I think I've only got one penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct, I kinda pushed someone back against Chicago. That might be my only unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. Probably deserved a few more, but that was the only one I got called for."

The Patriots beat Garrett and the Browns 27-13 at Gillette Stadium in Week 8.

The defending Super Bowl champs return to game action Sunday afternoon with a Week 11 matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field.

NFL Odds: Patriots a road favorite for record 29th straight game Sunday vs. Eagles

NFL Odds: Patriots a road favorite for record 29th straight game Sunday vs. Eagles

Some teams are lovable underdogs. But that doesn't apply to the New England Patriots — not by a long shot.

When New England travels to Philadelphia for their Week 11 matchup against the Eagles, the Pats will be a road favorite for the 29th consecutive game, extending their own NFL record, a streak that started with Tom Brady's first game back after his Deflategate suspension in 2016.

Not only have the Patriots succeeded in these situations, they've flourished, winning 75 percent of their games during that stretch — and doing so with an average margin of victory of 9.5 points — according to @BostonSportsInf on Twitter.

Here's a closer look at the longest streaks as a road favorite in NFL history:

Team (Years) Games Record
1. Patriots ('16-'19) 28 21-7
2. Rams ('99-'02) 26 18-8
3. 49ers ('83-'86) 21 15-6
4. 49ers ('96-'98) 17 13-4
5. 49ers ('93-'95) 16 11-5
T6. Colts ('06-'08) 15 9-6
T6. Redskins ('90-'92) 15 10-5

The Patriots are currently 3½-point favorites for Sunday's game, according to the Westgate Superbook, and their only road games remaining this season after this week are at Houston and Cincinnati. So barring a major injury, New England should extend their record streak to 31 consecutive games by season's end.
