Mashup: Obama commends Eagles for Vick

According to Peter King of NBC Sports and Sports Illustrated, President Barack Obama called Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie to congratulate and commend him for giving Michael Vick a second chance. Obama reportedly told Lurie that Vick's success gives other ex-prisoners hope for the future once they are rehabilitated. Meanwhile, Sunday's Vikings-Eagles game was postponed to Tuesday night due to the snowstorm that rocked the East Coast. That didn't sit well with everyone. One Minnesota columnist calls it an NFL-led conspiracy to bow to television interests and protect Vick.

Brady: 'We never get tired of winning'

After setting an NFL record for turnover-free football against the Bills, Tom Brady said he was most proud of the way the team handled adversity during a week filled with the flu and injury, ending with a 34-3 win. The victory clinched the team's eighth AFC East title in 10 years and assured New England the No. 1 seed and home field advantage throughout the upcoming AFC playoffs. 

 

"It never gets old, I'll tell you that," Brady said. "We never get tired of winning. It's what we've been preparing for all offseason and training camp and to have a chance to do something pretty special today. It's a tough division, with the Bills twice in these conditions, the Jets, Miami, with the difficult time they give us. To come out victorious, obviously, everyone is very proud of it. The season is not over yet."

 

The Patriots were without starting tight end Aaron Hernandez (hip) and Dan Connolly (concussion...

Belichick: 'I'm proud of them'

Bill Belichick met with the media following the Patriots 34-3 win over the Bills on Sunday, a win that clinched the club's eighth AFC East title in 10 years as well as home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs.

 

"It was a good win," said Belichick. "I thought our guys did a good job, certainly on ball possession and turnovers, which were a huge factor in the game. Our guys did a pretty decent job of taking care of it, fortunately we were able to get some on the other end and a capitalize on those. A real tough week, I really got a lot of respect for our players. Had a bunch of guys with the flu, and some guys with bumps and bruises coming off the Green Bay game, fighting through it … I'm proud of them for that."

 

Tom Brady broke Bernie Kosar's NFL record for consecutive passes without an interception on Sunday. Belichick was asked for his thoughts on the accomplishment.

Snowbound: Pats forced to stay put

The major snow storm that has slammed the east coast will force the Patriots to celebrate their eighth AFC East title in 10 seasons in Western New York. 

 

Moments after their 34-3 win over the Bills at Ralph Wilson Stadium, coach Bill Belichick said the team would be unable to fly back to Boston or New England. Asked what he and the Patriots planned to do with an extended stay on the road, Belichick quipped, "rest." 

 

The Patriots announced that - as part of their contingency plans - the team will bus east on the New York Thruway to Rochester and stay overnight there and then fly back Monday due to blizzard that already forced the postponement of Sunday night's Vikings-Eagles game in Philadelphia. That game will be played on Tuesday night.

Tom Brady set a new NFL mark for passes without an interception and the Patriots rolled up 217 yards rushing in a 34-3 rout of the Buffalo Bills in Orchard Park that clinched the AFC East and the No. 1 seed in the AFC playoffs. As a result of their 15th straight win over the Bills, the 13-2 Patriots will stay at home for as long as they remain alive in the playoffs until Super Bowl XLV. 

 

Brady finished 15-of-27 for just 140 yards, but he threw three TD passes, establishing a new NFL mark for passes thrown without an interception early in the third quarter. One pass after Brady set the record, Rob Gronkowski caught his second 8-yard TD catch. Brady also hit Alge Crumpler from 4 yards for a TD in the second quarter. Danny Woodhead had 93 yards on 13 carries, including a 29-yard touchdown run in the first quarter that put the Patriots ahead to stay.
