Brady: 'I love being quarterback of this team'

FOXBORO — Sunday was like a homecoming game for Tom Brady.

For the first time since the AFC divisional round against the Chiefs last January, Brady stepped on the Gillette Stadium field as he didn’t play a home game in the preseason and missed the first three home games due to his Deflategate suspension.

Sunday afternoon he returned and you could feel the excitement in the air in the hours leading up to the game with more fans entering the stadium early to get a glimpse of the quarterback as he took to the field for pregame warmups.

The support continued leading up to the game with a short video montage of the quarterback before the team came out of the locker room and a tremendous applause as he led the team out of the tunnel and on to the field. Even during the game there were a number of “Bra-dy, Bra-dy, Bra-dy” chants from the crowd.

After the game, Brady acknowledged he heard them loud and clear.

Pats on late scrap with Cincy: 'That's football'

FOXBORO — The end of Sunday’s game between the Patriots and Bengals featured lots of pushing and shoving, as well as plenty of flags down the stretch.

Cincy linebacker Vontaze Burfict appeared to mix it up with tight end Rob Gronkowski, as well as running back LeGarrette Blount. Gronkowski noted that when it comes to “baiting,” the Bengals “do that every game.” But the big tight end, who was flagged for taunting following a second-half reception, said he’s got to be smarter than to drawn into a scrap.

“First off, I’ve got to take full responsibility on that personal foul on me. I can’t be letting that happen,” said Gronkowski, who finished with 162 receiving yards, a career-high. “It’s a good thing that it didn’t hurt the team in this situation.

“I mean, we got the win, but down the road it can always hurt the team getting a personal foul. I’ve definitely got to be more aware of that and take responsibility on behalf for that penalty. But I...

Gronkowski: Bengals bait teams with chippiness

FOXBORO — Anyone who has watched the Bengals in the last few seasons know they are not a well-disciplined team.

This came up again in the late stages of the Patriots’ 35-17 win Sunday at Gillette Stadium with the Patriots leading 28-17 and driving late in the fourth quarter.

Rob Gronkowski, who had a career-high 162 yards receiving, appeared to be upset with a hit he took from Bengals corner Adam Jones over the middle when Jones dove at the big tight end’s ankles.

The two went back-and-forth where words were exchanged and Gronkowski was given a personal foul.

“There was really nothing really said,” Gronkowski said. “I was just bobbing my head, I think, and they gave me a personal foul.”

The tight end was removed from the game for one play following the penalty, but the penalty didn’t come back to hurt, as the Patriots still scored a touchdown on the drive — a 1-yard run by...

Dombrowski issues statement on Hazen's exit

It was announced Sunday afternoon by the Diamondbacks that Mike Hazen would be leaving his post as GM of the Red Sox to take become Arizona’s GM.

Early Sunday evening, Red Sox president of baseball operations released a statement regarding Hazen’s move:

“While this is certainly a significant loss for the Red Sox organization, we are extremely happy for Mike and his family as they begin this new opportunity in Arizona. As one of the most respected young baseball executives in the game, Mike is more than deserving of this position. On behalf of the club, we would like to thank Mike for his 11 years of service to the Red Sox and wish him well in his new role. He will be missed by all of his colleagues here at the Boston Red Sox.

In the meantime, a search for a new general manager for the Boston Red Sox is underway.”

Edelman: Gronk is 'like a Clydesdale horse'

FOXBORO — It was Tom Brady’s first game at Gillette Stadium since the AFC divisional round last year against the Chiefs, but Rob Gronkowski stole the show.

The tight end finished the game with seven catches for 162 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots’ 35-17 win over the Bengals. The 162 yards receiving were a career-high.

“He’s like a Clydesdale horse out there,” receiver Julian Edelman said. “It’s fun to watch. I’m glad he’s on our team.”

Edelman finished the game with four catches for 30 yards. It was the fourth straight game he’s finished with less than 40 yards receiving, the first time he’s done that since November of 2012.

For the Patriots offense overall, it was a tale of two halves as they scored just 10 points in the first half, but the defense created a spark in the second half, leading with Dont’a Hightower’s safety sack.
