Brady on D&C: Suggs had his chance

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show as part of WEEI's Patriots Monday to talk about Sunday's 23-20 overtime victory over the Ravens. Following the game, Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs warned that Brady "just better hope he doesn’t see us again."

 

Responded Brady: "He had his chance. Maybe if he gets another chance he can try to back those words up. But he had a chance yesterday. You know, we've played those guys a lot, and they've beat us one time in all the times that I've played them. They talk a lot for beating us once in nine years."

 

As for Suggs claiming that when Brady got in his face he was bragging about his supermodel wife, Brady said, "I think he made that up."

 

The Patriots visit San Diego next Sunday, but Brady said no one should expect an easy win just because of the team's success in the...

Phillies even NLCS behind Oswalt, Rollins
By: DJ Bean

The Phillies were unable to win with Roy Halladay on the mound on Saturday, but on Sunday rode an impressive Roy Oswalt performance to a 6-1 victory over the Giants to tie up the National League Championship Series at one game apiece. 

 

Oswalt tossed eight innings of one-run ball, allowing three hits and three walks while racking up nine strikeouts on 111 pitches. The lone Giants' run off Oswalt came on a Cody Ross solo home run in the fifth inning. It was Ross' third home run of the series. 

 

Jimmy Rollins drove in four of the Phillies' six runs, three of which came on a seventh inning double that scored Chase Utley, Placido Polanco, and Jayson Werth. Polanco contributed a pair of RBI with a sacrifice fly in the fifth and a single in the seventh. 

 

Jonathan Sanchez went six innings for the Giants and was pulled after allowing a leadoff single to Oswalt in the seventh. Sanchez was charged...

Oswalt comes up aces for Phillies vs. Giants

Phillies starter Roy Oswalt proved overpowering in his start against the Giants, churning through eight innings while allowing three hits and striking out nine to lead Philadelphia to a 6-1 victory. The Phillies win knotted the best-of-seven National League Championship Series, 1-1, with the two sides set to resume play on Tuesday in San Francisco.

 

Oswalt, acquired from Houston in July, carried a no-hitter into the fifth inning before Giants postseason phenomenon Cody Ross delivered a solo homer, his third blast in the two games of the NLCS and his fourth this postseason. But Oswalt quickly re-established his groove, and needed just 111 pitches over his eight frames.

 

The Phillies jumped on the board without benefit of a hit in the first inning, scoring a run on the strength of an error and three walks by Giants starter Jonathan Sanchez. Still, Sanchez kept the Phillies at bay until the fifth, when Shane Victorino...

Wilfork: 'Most physical game I ever played in'

FOXBORO -- Patriots nose tackle Vince Wilfork called Sunday's dramatic 23-20 overtime win over the Ravens the most physical game he's played in his seven-year career. 

 

"That was awesome," Wilfork said. "Big win, one of the biggest wins around here in a long time. Most physical game I ever played in."

 

Adding to the sweet taste afterward was the fact the the Patriots fell behind 20-10 early in the fourth quarter before scoring 10 fourth-quarter points to tie before Stephen Gostkowski's 35-yard field goal to end the game with 1:56 left in overtime. The win also avenged the 33-10 playoff loss to the Ravens on Jan. 10. 

 

"Everyone got the message," Wilfork said. "A lot of guys here for the playoff game understood what this game meant. We fought back. At times, we were getting booed, but we looked right past that stuff, stuck together as a true team."...
