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.

Patriots roll Bills for No. 1 seed

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. BenJarvus Green-Ellis added 104 yards and is now 72 yards from 1,000 on the...

Record-setter: Brady sets NFL mark

Tom Brady set a new NFL mark for passes without an interception and then found Rob Gronkowski for a touchdown on the next pass as the Patriots quarterback continued his remarkable season Sunday in Buffalo. 

 

Brady threw his 309th pass without being intercepted on an incompletion to Gronkowski at the Bills goal line on the Patriots' second drive of the second half, breaking the previous record held by Cleveland's Bernie Kosar, spanning the 1990-91 seasons. Brady has now thrown 24 TD passes since last being picked off by Baltimore on Oct. 17. One pass after setting the record, Gronkowski caught his second eight-yard TD catch. Brady also hit Alge Crumpler from four yards for a TD in the second-quarter. 

 

"What's my reaction? I'm glad I'm not throwing interceptions," Brady said. "I think our team's done a really good job of not turning the ball over this year, in general. All of the guys who'...

Lucic fined, not suspended for punch, gesture
By: DJ Bean

Bruins left wing Milan Lucic will not be suspended after sucker punching Thrashers defenseman Freddy Meyer in the head and gesturing to the Atlanta bench in the third period of the B's 4-1 victory at TD Garden on Thursday. He will instead receive fines totaling $3,500. 

 

Lucic had received an intent to injure match penalty for punching Meyer after the Thrashers defenseman hit Lucic high, a hit deemed dirty by all Bruins skaters on the ice, as a line brawl broke out between the two teams. The match penalty carries with it an automatic suspension pending a review, and after Lucic met with NHL vice presidents of hockey operations Mike Murphy on Sunday, he will not miss any time. 

 

Following is the statement released by Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli:

 

“The NHL has informed us that Milan will not be suspended as a result of the match penalty assessed to him during our game against...
