Belichick: Pats-Jets now 'best 2 out of 3'

Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Sunday afternoon they were looking forward to the challenge of facing the Jets in a divisional playoff contest next Sunday at Gillette Stadium, saying it's “probably the way it should be.”

Belichick and the Patriots split their two games this season with the Jets this season, losing 28-14 early in the season at the New Meadowlands and then crushing New York 45-3 at Gillette Stadium in December.

“We split with them this year and now, it'll be the best two out of three — probably the way it should be,” Belichick said on a conference call with reporters. “Both teams know each other well, and we're up for a ... ready for a whole new week of preparation, even though we're familiar with them and they're familiar with us.”

Last week in the days leading up to the Colts-Jets playoff game, New York coach Rex Ryan appeared to take a veiled shot at New...

Jets TE Keller on Patriots: 'Payback time'

Speaking to the Boston Herald in the aftermath of his team's 17-16 victory at the final gun over the Colts, Jets tight end Dustin Keller said that New York was eager for the opportunity to come to Foxboro in an attempt to avenge its 45-3 loss to the Patriots in Week 13. Just as the Jets managed to turn the tables on a Colts team that beat them in last year's AFC Championship Game to advance to the Super Bowl, Keller hoped that his team was positioned to reciprocate the recent beating that the Pats had delivered against the Jets.

 

”They gave us a bad beating the last time we played them,” Keller said. ”So we feel like it’s two games in a row where it’s payback time. We’re going to get a chance to get back at them....

Jets to take on Patriots after clipping Colts

Trailing by two points with 53 seconds left, the Jets marched down the field and claimed a dramatic 17-16 victory over the Colts when kicker Nick Folk drilled a 32-yard field goal as time expired. The Colts had taken a 16-14 lead in the game's final minute when Indianapolis kicker Adam Vinatieri delivered a clutch 50-yard field goal to complete an eight-play, 48-yard drive that began with 2:45 left in the fourth quarter.

 

But Antonio Cromartie ran the ensuing kickoff back 47 yards to the Jets' 46-yard line, and Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez completed a pair of passes -- most notably, an 18-yard hookup with Braylon Edwards that took the ball to the Indianapolis 14-yard line, to set up Folk's kick. With the win, the Jets advanced past the Colts to the division round of the playoff. New York will take on the Patriots next Sunday in Foxboro.

 

Prior to the final drive, most of the Jets' offense had come from the running game....

Tough night in Chi-town: C's lose

The Celtics were probably due for a rough game after playing four times already this week with Saturday night’s game against the Bulls the second back-to-back of the week. Add in the fact that they were playing Tom Thibodeau’s defensive-minded club and it’s no shock that the Celtics shot 38 percent in a 90-79 loss.

 

The Bulls owned the glass (48-27) and the free-throw line as Derrick Rose took a career-high 19 attempts and made 15, which was also a career-best, en route to a 36-point night. The only thing that kept the Celtics in the game were 21 turnovers by Chicago. But even the Bulls largesse wasn’t enough as Chicago was able to pull away in the last five minutes. Paul Pierce and Ray Allen combined to score more than half the Celtics points with 40 between them.

 

The Celtics return home after this short trip for a six-game homestand against where they will face only two teams with winning...
