Brady: Happy with win, not execution

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was able to breathe a sigh of relief after James Sanders picked off a Peyton Manning pass in the final minute of the Patriots 31-28 victory over the Colts, but he wasn't happy about the way his offense executed down the stretch. "We knew it was going to come down to the end, like always," Brady said. "We started fast. Wish we would have executed a little better there in the second half. Any time you play these guys, you’ve got to play to the end." 

 

Still, Brady was obviously happy to get the win. "Believe me, we’re happy we won," he said. "You beat the Colts, you’ve got to be happy you won, but also it means that we got to do a better job there."

 

Brady noted the Pats failure to convert third downs late in the game, which opened the door for the Colts to rally from 31-14 down and gave them a chance to try and steal the win....

Belichick: 'We'll enjoy it for a couple hours'

Patriots head coach Bill Belichick described his team as "really happy to get the win" following its 31-28 victory over the Colts at Gillette Stadium. But while he was pleased to improve to 8-2, he also suggested that the quick turnaround prior to the Thursday game against the Lions left New England with little time to celebrate.

 

"It went right down to the wire. [The Colts] are an outstanding football team. They really do a good job," said Belichick. "Our guys just made a few more plays than they did today. Really happy to get the win. We’ve got a quick turnaround here. We can’t stay on this one very long, but we’ll enjoy it for a couple hours."

 

Belichick praised the play made by safety James Sanders on the Colts' final drive of the game, when he picked off a pass inside the Patriots' 10-yard-line to halt the Indianapolis drive and seal New England's victory.

Bucking up: Pats pick off Manning, Colts

FOXBORO -- James Sanders intercepted Peyton Manning at the Patriots 6-yard line with 31 seconds remaining to thwart another collapse to the Colts and the Patriots held on for a 31-28 win Sunday at Gillette Stadium. Danny Woodhead had a spectacular 36-yard TD run and Tom Brady threw a pair of touchdown passes as the Patriots survived a late-game threat. 

 

Brady finished 19-of-25 for 186 yards on the afternoon while Woodhead put the Patriots up, 28-14 late in the third quarter with a run off right tackle, as he stayed on his feet after nearly being brought down at the 10-yard line. Shayne Graham's 25-yard field goal early in the fourth put the Patriots ahead, 31-14. 

 

While Manning did complete 38-of-52 passes for 396 yards and four touchdowns, the Patriots defense came up with big plays, including an interception by Brandon Meriweather on the game's opening drive that set-up Brady's 22-yard TD pass to Wes...

Celtics drop a heartbreaker in Toronto

Playing without Rajon Rondo, who was shut down before the game with a strained hamstring, the Celtics couldn't hold a late lead in a 102-101 loss to the Toronto Raptors Sunday night. The Celtics, who played inconsistently for most of the afternoon, actually rallied to take the lead but Ray Allen lost control of the ball with 18 seconds left and Amir Johnson made two free throws with 2.7 seconds left. Paul Pierce missed a jumper at the buzzer that would have won it.

 

The Celtics rallied from a double-digit fourth quarter deficit on the strength of their defense, which had been absent for most of the first half. They were also handicapped by serious foul trouble with all of their big men limited by fouls from the second quarter on. With all that, Allen was able to knock down back-to-back 3-pointers that tied the game and then gave the Celtics a 97-94 lead.

 

Filling in for Rondo, Nate Robinson scored a season-high 22 points...
