Pollard calls history with Pats 'a coincidence'

Bernard Pollard managed to add to his already-lengthy history with the Patriots in his Ravens’ 28-13 AFC Championship win over the Patriots, Sunday night in Foxboro.

Pollard was first introduced into Patriots lore when his tackle of Tom Brady in the 2008 season-opener ended the quarterback’s season due to a torn knee ligament.

Then, in ’10, the safety was credited with the tackle when Wes Welker tore up his knee in the final game of that season.

Last year it was a tackle of Rob Gronkowski in the AFC title game, hampering the tight end heading into the Super Bowl with a high ankle sprain.

This time, Pollard left his mark via a fourth-quarter hit of Pats running back Stevan Ridley with 12:55 in the game and hosts trailing by eight. The head-to-head tackle forced a game-changing fumble, while driving Ridley from the game with a head injury.

Brady on defeat: 'We didn't earn it'

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady offered no excuses for the Patriots’ 28-13 loss to the Ravens, a game that was entirely one-sided in a second-half that featured Baltimore outscoring New England, 21-0.

“We obviously didn’t play very well. You don’t play very well against a good team, it’s not going to be very competitive. It’s unfortunate. We just didn’t make critical plays when we needed to,” said Brady. “Whatever we did, we didn’t execute it well. The name of the game is execution. If you don’t execute well against a good team, you’re not going to come up on the winning end.

“That’s part of the competition,” he later added. “You had the opportunity to win the game. We came up short. There’s frustration. We wish we could have done better. But they’re not going to give it to you. We didn’t earn it. They earned it. They played a good game.”

Brady briefly addressed his...

Celtics sputter in loss to Pistons

Despite the return of guard Avery Bradley to the starting lineup, the Celtics lost their third straight game as the starting lineup endured a dreadful performance, falling in Detroit to the Pistons, 103-88. The quintet of Bradley, Paul Pierce, Rajon Rondo, Kevin Garnett and Brandon Bass shot a woeful 17-of-48 from the field while combining to score just 40 points.

Rondo had just eight points on 4-of-16 shooting, and though he had nine rebounds and 15 assists, he also matched a career high by turning over the ball nine times. Garnett and Courtney Lee led the Celtics with 16 points each.

The Pistons featured a balanced attack with six players scoring at least 13 points, with Andre Drummond leading the way with 16 points off the bunch. Center Greg Monroe added 15 points and 11 rebounds in 38 minutes....

Broken dreams: Ravens end Patriots' season

The Ravens scored 21 straight points in the second half and the Patriots offense could not overcome several costly mistakes on offense as Baltimore beat the Patriots, 28-13, Sunday at Gillette Stadium in the AFC championship. Anquan Boldin, who predicted a Ravens win earlier in the week, caught a pair of fourth-quarter touchdown passes from Joe Flacco as the Ravens earn revenge for last year’s loss in the AFC title game at Gillette. The win sets up a matchup of the Harbaugh brothers in Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans as John Harbaugh leads his Ravens against Jim Harbaugh‘s 49ers on Feb. 3.

Tom Brady lost a game at home for the first time when leading at the half. He had been 67-0 before losing Sunday. The Patriots also lost an AFC championship game at home for the first time in five tries and for just the second time in their history.

Avery Bradley makes surprise start

Celtics guard Avery Bradley, who missed Friday’s game against the Bulls with a rib injury, was back in the Celtics lineup on Sunday night in Detroit against the Pistons. His presence among the starting five came as something of a surprise, given that coach Doc Rivers had suggested that the third-year player was doubtful for Sunday.

Entering Sunday, Bradley was averaging 8.1 points, 1.5 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.3 steals per game. The Celtics are 6-2 in his first eight games.
