Balanced attack: Brady, run game leads Pats

FOXBORO -- Tom Brady threw for three touchdowns, including a pair to Randy Moss, and Danny Woodhead and BenJarvus Green-Ellis each ran for a score as the Patriots fended off the Bills, 38-30, Sunday afternoon at Gillette Stadium. 

 

The Bills, with new starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, put up a tough struggle, taking leads of 13-7 and 16-14 just prior to halftime before Steve Gostkowski's 42-yard field goal gave the Patriots the lead for good. Brady's second TD pass of the day, a 35-yarder over the middle, put the Patriots up, 24-16. That was followed immediately by a 95-yard kickoff return by C.J. Spiller down the right sideline. 

 

Brady put together TD drives of 75 and 59 yards to seal the win. Moss now has 50 receiving TDs with the Patriots, tied with Ben Coates for 2nd in franchise history. Moss also moved ahead of Marvin Harrison into 5th place in all-time receiving yards in the NFL.

In reversal, Yanks to start Hughes vs. Sox

NEW YORK -- In a surprise development, the Yankees will start Phil Hughes instead of Dustin Moseley against the Red Sox on Sunday night. Joel Sherman of the New York Post was the first to report the decision.

 

Hughes is 17-8 with a 4.31 ERA, while Moseley is 4-3 with a 4.94 mark. On Friday, the Yankees had made the decision to skip Hughes, who has thrown a career-high 169 1/3 innings, in favor of Moseley in hopes of preserving the arm of their 24-year-old right-hander. But that decision occurred at a time when the Yankees were 7 1/2 games up in the division; with the Red Sox having trimmed the deficit to 5 1/2 games with victories in each of the first two contests of the three-game series in Yankee Stadium, New York made its decision to reverse its decision.

Also inactive for the Patriots are DL Brandon Deaderick, LB Dane Fletcher, OL Nick Kaczur, DL Kyle Love and OL Steve Maneri.

Chiarelli: Savard 'tracking' toward LTIR
By: DJ Bean

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said on Sunday morning that the team is looking internally to replace star center Marc Savard, who is currently battling depression and other post-concussion syndrome symptoms. Savard admitted Saturday that returning to the team in the second round of the playoffs may not have been the best idea. As a result of everything, Chiarelli indicated that Savard could begin the season on long-term injured reserve.

 

 

"That could happen," Chiarelli said. "It is a little too early to tell, but based on what he's  going through, the post-concussion symptoms … the time he hasn't been doing anything, it's tracking that way right now."

 

LTIR requires a player miss 10 games and 24 days prior to returning. With Savard out, the team would temporarily save his cap hit and theoretically might actually begin the season more than $4 million under the cap.

Panthers stop Seguin, Bruins in shootout
By: DJ Bean

Cory Stillman notched the game-winner against Tuukka Rask in a shootout as the Bruins took a 3-2 loss in third preseason game, their first at TD Garden.

 

In regulation, both teams went scoreless in the first period with each with the Bruins scoring twice in the second and the Panthers picking up two of their own in the third. Tyler Seguin and Nathan Horton provided the offense for the B's, with both of the high-profile newcomers beating Scott Clemmensen in the second. Seguin's tally was the first of his preseason, while Horton had already potted one against the Canadiens on Wednesday night. 

 

Radek Dvorak slid a Tuukka Rask rebound into the Bruins' net at 2:20 of the third period to make it a 2-1 game. The goal broke up a shutout bid by Rask in which the Panthers otherwise failed to capitalize on rebounds. Later in the period, a Horton turnover behind his own net led to Marty Reasoner setting up Nathan McArdle for the...
