Watch Bill Belichick analyze Patriots’ best defensive plays from Week 2 win

Watch Bill Belichick analyze Patriots’ best defensive plays from Week 2 win

The New England Patriots defense dominated the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, earning the team’s first shutout win since early in the 2016 season.

The Patriots tallied four interceptions, seven sacks and held the Dolphins to a 2-for-15 mark on third downs en route to a 43-0 victory. 

Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, as he does each week, analyzed some of his team’s top plays alongside 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Scott Zolak. The defense was the focus of this week’s film review.

Check it out in the tweet below:

The Patriots have allowed just three points through the first two weeks of the season, and they are the first team since the 1981 Buffalo Bills to accomplish that feat in the Super Bowl era (1970 to present). 

New England’s defense should continue to accomplish impressive feats when the injury-ravaged New York Jets come to Gillette Stadium for Sunday’s Week 3 matchup and likely start third-string quarterback Luke Falk.

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.
