Best of the 2010s: Ranking the 10 greatest Patriots wins of the decade

Best of the 2010s: Ranking the 10 greatest Patriots wins of the decade

Even if we were to lop off the entire first half of this Patriots dynasty -- an entire decade -- what the Patriots have done since 2010 would still qualify as one of the greatest runs any franchise has put together in NFL history.

Three Super Bowl titles. Five Super Bowl appearances. Eight AFC Championship Games. Ten AFC East crowns. It's mind-boggling. Narrowing down the list of big wins to 10 is equally disorienting. The ones that resulted in Lombardi Trophies are obvious, but after that . . . it's an eye-of-the-beholder situation. 

Your view of the rankings might differ from mine, but no matter which way you go, the end result is the same: It's been a pretty good time to be a Patriots fan.

 

 

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:

Patriots will wear this Super Bowl LIII champions patch vs. Steelers

The New England Patriots will celebrate their Super Bowl LIII win over the Los Angeles Rams for the final time before the 2019 season begins Sunday night when they unveil the team's latest championship banner during a pre-game ceremony at Gillette Stadium. 

The franchise also will honor its sixth title with a special Super Bowl LIII champions patch that will appear on every player's jersey. Check out the patch in the photo below:

The Patriots' opponent in their Week 1 matchup is the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers also opened the season at Gillette Stadium on the night the Patriots unveiled a Super Bowl banner in 2002 and 2015. Pittsburgh owns a disappointing 1-5 all-time record at Gillette Stadium, including the playoffs.

New England is 4-1 in season openers after winning the Super Bowl the year before. The Patriots' only loss in that scenario was to the Kansas City Chiefs in 2017.
