Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show early Friday morning. Mayo talked about last Sunday's disappointing loss to the Browns. "First and foremost, it was just energy," he said. "We came out a little flat."
Mayo said Bill Belichick has not been a pleasant person this week, his usual persona after a loss. "We never will accept losing around here," Mayo said. "Ever since I was drafted to New England, it's been that way. It's a bad feeling when you come around here after a loss."
However, Mayo said there is a silver lining to the loss, as the team has studied film of the game and been able to identify and work on correcting its problems, especially with technique. "It's worth losing if you can learn a lot, and I think we did," he said.
Looking ahead to this Sunday's game, Mayo knows the Patriots will...
Celtics forward Paul Pierce, after the Celtics' 112-107 victory over the Heat in Miami, took a dig at Miami star LeBron James. In an echo of James' proclamation that he was "going to take my talents to South Beach" when announcing his decision to sign as a free agent with the Heat, Pierce, who scored 25 points for the Celtics on Thursday, could not help but take a dig at the Heat superstar.
On his Twitter account, Pierce wrote, "It's been a pleasure to bring my talents to south beach now on to Memphis."
The Celtics improved to 7-2, while the Heat slipped to 5-4. For analysis of the game,...
Despite some anxious moments in the final mimutes, the Celtics walked out of Miami with a 112-107 win over the Heat Thursday night behind 35 points from Ray Allen. Allen knocked down 7-of-9 3-pointers and made two clutch free throws in the final seconds to preserve the win. Paul Pierce added 25 points, Kevin Garnett had 16 points and 13 rebounds and Rajon Rondo had 16 assists.
The Celtics led throughout the game and took a 15-point lead into halftime, thanks to a ridiculous 60 percent shooting performance.The signature play of the game happened early when Rondo drove down the middle of the lane and threw down a dunk while Chris Bosh passively watched.
LeBron James had his best game with the Heat, scoring 35 points, but he badly missed a 3-pointer off the side of the backboard and couldn't do it all by himself. Bosh had 15 points and was once again outplayed by Garnett, while Dwyane Wade scored just eight points on 2-for...
Former Boston College and New Jersey Devils star Brian Gionta scored the go-ahead goal on the power play just 29 seconds into the third period as the Canadiens beat Tuukka Rask and the Bruins, 3-1, Thursday night at TD Garden. Bruins captain Zdeno Chara took an interference penalty in the final eight seconds of the second period to give the Canadiens the man-advantage to start the third.
The Canadiens scored their first two goals on the power play and got an insurance tally from Scott Gomez midway through the third as the visitors peppered Rask with 41 shots on the night. Chara took a perfect pass from Milan Lucic and scored the only goal for the Bruins at 15:49 of the first to tie the game. It was his fourth of the season.
Rask, who was making his fourth start, remains winless this season with a record of 0-4-1. The win gave the Canadiens 21 points, four more than the second-place Bruins in the Northeast...
After missing five games with an injured knee, Shaquille O'Neal returned to the Celtics lineup and started at center against the Heat, Thursday.
