Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis told reporters that the Patriots should not be criticizing New York for its celebration after a 28-21 victory over the Pats on Sunday. New England wide receiver Deion Branch called the Jets' celebration classless. Revis, the star cornerback of the Jets, shrugged off such statements.
"Just take the loss like a man," Revis said (as relayed by The Associated Press). "Just take it like a man, and move on."

Chad Ochocinco, a New England Patriot? The controversial wide receiver posted a Tweet on Monday saying “PePe and Bill #EPIC.” (PePe is one of his nicknames.)
Patriots coach Bill Belichick and Ochocinco go back all the way to 2001, when Belichick worked him out as a collegian. They have maintained a friendship over the last few years, and it certainly sounds like the Patriots’ coach as a real admiration for Ochocinco and vice versa.
“I like Chad — I like him as a player. I like him as a person,” Belichick said. “I like his enthusiasm and the fun he has with football, and I like how he competes on the football field. I have a lot of respect for that.
“[We’re] an odd couple, but in the end I think we have a lot of things in common.”
“It became a relationship beyond just a football player and a coach. He became a friend of mine,” Ochocinco...
Kevin Garnett will make his return to the lineup against the Orlando Magic Monday night and he will not have a minutes restriction in his first game since injuring his right calf against the Pistons on Dec. 29. "He's pretty much free to play," Celtics coach Doc Rivers said before the game.
The Celtics had contemplated bringing Garnett back last Friday after he went through most of a practice the day before. But they ultimately decided to give him the weekend to make sure everything felt 100 percent. "He had a practice before the other night where he probably could have played, but we were going to bring him back if he was right," Rivers said. "So he’s pretty much free to play now."
Several other injured Celtics players are also in the lineup including Shaquille O'Neal, who slipped on ice getting to practice Sunday and Marquis Daniels who had to sit out most of practice after...
The Patriots season ended Sunday evening, but they should be busy now that the NFL award season is underway. Pro Football Weekly and the Pro Football Writers of America named its 2010 award winners, all-pro and all-rookie teams on Monday, and there were several Patriots represented. Quarterback Tom Brady was voted the league MVP by the PFW and PFWA, and was also named all-NFL. Meanwhile, coach Bill Belichick was named NFL coach of the year. In addition, linebacker Jerod Mayo was named to the all-NFL team, and tight end Rob Gronkowski, cornerback Devin McCourty and punter Zoltan Mesko were named to the PFW's all-rookie team.

Zdeno Chara hadn't been holding his breath for his first career hat trick, but he was able to breathe a sigh of relief after becoming the fourth defenseman in Bruins history to accomplish the feat.
"You're always kind of thinking about how it would be nice to have that kind of a game in your career, to say, 'Hey, I've done it, I had a hat trick,' but for myself, it took 14-15 years. I'm not expecting to have another one anytime soon."
Regardless of how frequently he tallies three goals in a game, his teammates were glad to see him do it for the first time, including another long-tenured Bruin who just recently had their first hat trick.
"That's our leader," Patrice Bergeron said of Chara. "That's our captain. That's why he's probably the best defenseman in the league."
Chara celebrated the hat trick by gesturing to the crowd with his glove,...
