Randy Moss may have removed himself from Revis Island with a spectacular one-handed touchdown catch against the corner, but it wasn't enough as the Pats lost to the Jets, 28-14. "Man, I don’t really know," Moss said after the game. "Some things you really can’t answer. It just seemed like it fell apart in the second half. When you put a lot of hard work in like we did throughout the week – it was really a hard-working week – it’s just disappointing to come out and play a good first half and come out and lay down the second half. It’s very disappointing from my perspective. I’ve just got to do a little bit better. The team relied on me to throw me the ball. I just didn’t really make the plays in the second half. It’s something that really hurts. The good thing about it is that we go to work tomorrow."
"It's how you handle adversity," Moss added. "The Jets...
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The Jets scored 18 unanswered, second-half points, with Mark Sanchez connecting on a third quarter, two-yard touchdown pass to Jerricho Cotchery, and a one-yard TD throw to Dustin Keller in the fourth quarter to pull away with a 28-14 win over the Patriots, Sunday afternoon at the new Meadowlands Stadium.
The Patriots had jumped out to a 14-10 lead heading into halftime thanks to a six-yard touchdown pass from Brady to Wes Welker in the first quarter, and Randy Moss' 34-yard touchdown grab -- over cornerback Darrelle Revis (who left with a hamstring injury after the play) -- with 47 seconds left in the first half.
In the second half, however, Brady struggled, throwing a pair of interceptions, while also fumbling after being sacked by Jason Taylor late in the fourth quarter. The Pats' QB finished going 20-for-36 for 248 yards. Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez rebounded from a poor game in his team's...
Adrian Beltre will likely return to the Red Sox lineup on Monday night in the opener of a three-game series against the Orioles after getting a clean bill of health on his left wrist, injured in Saturday night's loss to the Blue Jays.
"He was checked out over at Mass General," Red Sox manager Terry Francona said following Sunday's 6-0 win. "He got an MRI, a CT scan, x-rays. He got a clean bill of health and he'll probably play [Monday]."
Francona didn't make out the lineup card until an hour before Sunday's game to keep open the possibility of playing the third baseman who entered Sunday with 28 homers and 98 RBIs and a team-leading .329 average. Beltre was eventually held out in favor of rookie Yamaico Navarro, who made his first career big league start at third base.

Red Sox third baseman Adrian Beltre, who missed Sunday's game after injuring his wrist while trying to make a diving play in Saturday's game, received an MRI, a CT-scan and X-rays at Mass General on Sunday afternoon. The evaluation revealed no damage to Beltre's left wrist, and the Sox expect that he will be back in the lineup on Monday.
"He got a clean bill of health and he'll probably play [Monday]," said Sox manager Terry Francona.
Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis was ruled out for the remainder of the Patriots-Jets game after apparently re-aggravating his hamstring while covering Randy Moss on the wide receiver's 34-yard touchdown catch from Tom Brady with 53 seconds remaining in the first half. The play was the final time the Jets' defense was on the field in the first half, with Revis not joining the unit for their initial series in the second half. Revis had primarily drawn coverage on Moss throughout the first two quarters, ending up with the coverage on the Patriots' wideout on 22 of the Patriots' 34 plays which didn't include a Pats' punt. Prior to the TD catch, Moss had one catch against Revis, having been thrown to four times with the cornerback covering. The Patriots carreid a 14-10 into halftime.
