Belichick: 'Best 60 minutes of football'

Patriots coach Bill Belichick doesn't often dole out a lot of praise, but he cut right to the chase after his team demolished the Jets, 45-3 Monday night. "I thought this was the best 60 minutes of football we've played all year," he said. "We had a good week in practice. Everybody was really focused. We got a lot of solid play, really from everybody. It was a good night for us, we'll take it."

 

The win evened the season series and put the Patriots a game ahead of New York in the East at 10-2, but this may not be the last time these two teams play as they could meet again in the playoffs. "The Jets are a good football team," the coach said. "I'm sure we haven't heard the last from them, but tonight was our night." 

 

Belichick was clearly pleased that the Patriots played this well, and won such an important game on Tedy Bruschi night. "I'm sure it's a game that Tedy's...

Auto-pilot: Pats trash Ryan's Jets

FOXBORO -- Tom Brady threw four touchdowns in another near-perfect performance, continuing his run at an NFL MVP honor, as the Patriots embarrassed the Jets, 45-3, Monday night at Gillette Stadium. Brady threw four touchdowns and led a pair of second-half drives of over 90 yards in following up his "perfect" game on Thanksgiving with another phenomenal game. 

 

Brady was 21-of-29 for 326 yards for a rating of 148.8, just shy of the 158.3 perfect mark. Brady's first TD pass came on 4th and 3 at the Jets 25. He found Deion Branch on a quick slant and Branch eluded a pair of defenders to get in the end zone.  Danny Woodhead had a career-high 104 receiving yards. Brady now has 252 career TD passes, as he passed Drew Bledsoe for 13th place in NFL history. BenJarvus Green-Ellis added a pair of touchdown runs for the Patriots, who won their fourth straight after a 10-day layoff. 

 

Meanwhile, the...

Epstein: Sox seek 'complementary' move

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein said that, with the team having now acquired first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, the club is focused primarily on bullpen help, while also exploring the possibility of adding a right-handed hitter and/or an outfielder. But whereas the Sox were connected for much of the offseason to both Jayson Werth (before he signed with the Nationals in a seven-year, $126 million deal that shocked the industry) and Carl Crawford, Epstein suggested that if the Sox do anything, it may be simply for a "complementary" player.

 

"There’s been a lot of talk about our outfield and we’ve talked about it internally," said Epstein. "I feel like if we brought back the same group, we’d be OK.

 

"There’s some benefit to bringing the right player into the mix for a couple of different reasons. It might allow us some time for some of our...
