If you were to compare the New England Patriots' performance Sunday to a marine animal, it would be a great white shark.

Therefore, it was fitting that Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman celebrated his team's impressive 43-0 win over the rival Miami Dolphins by posting a Jaws-themed picture to his Twitter and Instagram accounts. Check it out in the post below:

Edelman tallied four receptions for 51 yards and was one of seven players to catch at least one pass from Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. New England's rushing attack also was much-improved from Week 1, gaining 136 yards and scoring two touchdowns.

The real story of the game was the Patriots' defense, which has held opponents to just three points and a 5-for-27 mark on third downs over the first two weeks of the season. 

The Patriots' dominance should continue next week at Gillette Stadium when the defending Super Bowl champions host the New York Jets, who will be without young quarterback Sam Darnold because of illness.
