Rams CB Jalen Ramsey’s true feelings on 2-0 record vs. Tom Brady
Los Angeles Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey couldn’t care less about his winning record against Tom Brady. Not that it doesn’t matter, but Ramsey knows very well he can’t relax and take it easy against one of the best to ever do it.
Speaking with reporters on Friday ahead of the Rams’ showdown with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Ramsey shared how much he respects Brady and his winning mentality. While it’s incredible for him to have a 2-0 record against Brady in the regular season, he highlighted that the legendary QB actually beat him during the AFC Championship game–back in 2018 when he was still with the Jacksonville Jaguars and Brady was with the New England Patriots.
“That’s false actually, because he for sure beat me in the AFC Championship game before, which was the most important one,” the Rams CB said when asked about the 2-0 record, per Pro Football Talk. “The two regular-season games, I’m not going to say they didn’t matter because I feel like every game matters personally, to me it does. I think this is my fourth time playing Tom. Like I said, he is Tom Brady. He is the greatest to play the game, so there is just a lot of respect there. He does a good job of leading his team, having his team ready to play. That’s one thing that I respect even more is just his team’s always ready. No matter who it is.”
It certainly looks like Jalen Ramsey is not looking at the past and is purely focused on the present as he faces Tom Brady, and for a good reason.
After all, Brady and his Buccaneers are 2-0 on the season after defeating the Dallas Cowboys and Atlanta Falcons in Weeks 1 and 2. TB12 has been sensational in both outings–combining for nine touchdowns on 655 yards–and it’s not wrong to expect him to do the same on Sunday.
The Rams are also undefeated, so one team will suffer their first defeat come the game at SoFi Stadium. Ramsey certainly doesn’t need any more motivation to step up and keep his immaculate record against Brady intact.
