Wilfork: Won't 'pick a fight' with officials

BALTIMORE -- Patriots defensive captain Vince Wilfork said he was surprised that the game officials ran off the field so quickly after Justin Tucker's game-winning 27-yard field goal as time expired. 

"You have to. In game like this, you have to, but instead, they ran off the field. It is what it is," Wilfork said. "I'm not going to sit here and pick a fight with those guys. They have a job to do, we have a job to do. The only thing we can do is play better and try not to be in those situations no more."

Wilfork said he felt badly for the offense after the defense failed to protect a 30-21 lead with just over six minutes left in the fourth quarter. 

"We didn't do what we needed to do to help our offense tonight," Wilfork said. "It sucks because coming into the game we had a pretty good idea of how we wanted to play it. First quarter it showed, but it seemed like after that we couldn't get off the...

Pollard: We'll see Patriots again

BALTIMORE -- Ravens defensive back Bernard Pollard was happy with the win over the Patriots Sunday night, but said he anticipates seeing New England again later this season.

"We know we're probably going to see them down the road," Pollard said after the game. "With [Tom Brady], you have to get pressure on that man's face. If you let him sit back there, he'll eat you alive, and I think you guys saw that. Allowing him to sit back with guys running around him, that guy can thread the needle."

Buoyed by Brady, the Patriots held a 30-21 lead early in the fourth quarter, but a 10-0 run down the stretch -- capped off by a last-second field goal by Justin Tucker -- gave Baltimore a 31-30 win. Pollard, who gained a measure of infamy in New England after he delivered a hit that resulted in a season-ending injury to Brady in the 2008 opener and a tackle on Rob Gronkowski in last year's AFC title game that left the...

Spikes unloads on officials

BALTIMORE -- In the moments after New England's heartbreaking 31-30 loss to the Ravens Sunday night at M&T Bank Stadium, Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes tweeted his frustration with the replacement officials. 

Can someone please tell these [expletive] zebras foot locker called and they’re needed Back at work !!!! #BreakingPoint

Later, Spikes tweeted, I thought after Noah’s Ark & the great flood, God said he wouldn’t punish us again..well how do u explain what happen 2nite ?! Ijs #PoWwWwW

The Patriots were called for 10 penalties for 83 yards, including a pass interference on Devin McCourty that set up the game-winning field goal by Justin Tucker. The field goal appeared to go directly over the right upright but no review was made by the on-field officials. Instead, they ran off the field, with Patriots coach Bill Belichick trying in vain to chase them down. 

The Ravens were...

Belichick doesn't think he'll be fined

Patriots coach Bill Belichick appeared to grab an official after the Ravens completed a 31-30 comeback in a game that featured 24 penalties and a disputed game-winning field goal at the end of regulation, but the coach had a simple answer when asked if he thought he would be fined: "No." 

As for the officials, Belichick said, "I'm not going to comment on that. You saw the game. What did we have, 30 penalties called in the game?"

Pressed further, the coach said, "It's our job to just go out there and control what we can control. That's what we're going to try to work on. You can't control anything else. You'd have to talk to those guys. Go talk to the officials about the way they called the game. Go talk to the league about the way they called it. I don't know, but we've got to go out and control it the best we can."  

Belichick said he couldn't see whether the kick was good, but he added that he...

Crushed again: Pats lose on last-second FG

BALTIMORE -- Justin Tucker connected on a 27-yard field goal as time expired to lift the Ravens to a 31-30 come-from-behind win over the Patriots on Sunday night at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. A pass interference call on Devin McCourty at the Patriots' 7-yard line set up the game-winning field goal. 

After a week of speculation about his role in the Patriots offense, Wes Welker had his biggest game of the year, catching eight balls for 142 yards. Tom Brady finished 28-of-41 for 335 yards and a touchdown as the Patriots fell to 1-2 and are under .500 for the first time since losing the opening game in 2003.  

The game was yet another public relations nightmare for the NFL as replacement officials combined to call 24 penalties for 218 yards. 

The Patriots raced out to a 13-0 lead thanks in large part to suffocating defense on Joe Flacco that held the Ravens without a first-quarter first down and an overwhelming time...
