Tom Brady stays unbeaten against Ben Roethlisberger in Foxboro, improves insane stat line vs Steelers

In case you hadn't noticed, Tom Brady plays pretty well at home. Especially against the Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers. 

In Week 1 on Sunday night, the Patriots began their sixth Super Bowl championship with a dominant victory over Pittsburgh. Brady, entering his Age-42 season, looked about as good as you could hope for against a talented young Steeler defense. 

With the win, Brady improves to 6-0 against Roethlisberger in Foxboro, and has now thrown 21 touchdowns and zero interceptions in those games. Here's Brady's full stat line:

W/L: 6-0
Cmp %: 71.1 percent (165-for-232)
Yards: 2,138
TD/INT: 21-0
Yards/Att: 9.22

The Steelers have been one of the more consistent teams in the AFC with Roethlisberger as their quarterback, so it goes to show just how much better Brady has been when they pay him a visit at Gillette. 

Brady has simply thrashed the Steelers defense time and time again, and if the Steelers hope to get past the Patriots in the playoffs any time soon, they'll have to finish with a better regular-season record so they don't have to travel to Foxboro.

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.
