Ochocinco: 'Just got away from me'

Chad Ochocinco continued his early season struggles on Sunday in Buffalo, dropping what would have been an easy touchdown in the fourth quarter and running a poor route on a third-quarter Tom Brady interception.

“It just got away from me.” Ochocinco told the Boston Herald after the game. “Is it killing me? No. It was good. Mentally, it was really good. I knew all my [stuff]. Now, that felt good. That’s step one. It’s just got to come quicker."

Ochocinco had two catches for 28 yards in the loss.

Francona: Sox lapses 'my responsibility'

NEW YORK -- The Red Sox have played sloppy baseball throughout their march to a 5-18 record in the month of September, with the team committing a number of untimely errors and lapses both in the field and on the bases. After the Sox suffered a 6-2 loss in Game 1 of Sunday's day-night doubleheader against the Yankees, a defeat that left the Sox just one-half game in front of the Rays in the wild card race, manager Terry Francona said that he was accountable for such struggles with focus and execution.

"I get concerned with everything. That part falls directly on my shoulders. When it doesn’t go right, it’s my responsibility," Francona said. "Saying that, we have four games. We can write our [destiny]. We just need to work on our writing skills a little bit."

Game 2 lineup: J.D. Drew returns

NEW YORK -- The Red Sox lineup for the second game of Sunday's day-night doubleheader will feature the return of J.D. Drew, who will bat seventh and play right after missing the last two months with a succession of injuries to his shoulder, finger and neck.

Drew is hitting .217 with a .319 OBP and .305 slugging mark this year. However, the Sox were encouraged by his recent swings in batting practice, and at a time when the Sox have been concerned that Josh Reddick has been expanding the strike zone, Drew offers the likelihood of a batter who will work deep into counts.

The second game lineup also features Jed Lowrie at third base, marking just the second start for the switch-hitter in the last two weeks.

Brady: 'I wish [Jackson] went into end zone'

After watching helplessly on the sidelines for the final two minutes as the Bills ran out the clock before the game-winning field goal, Tom Brady said the Patriots would've been better off if the officials didn't overturn Fred Jackson's 39-yard touchdown on a short pass over the middle. Instead, after a review, the Bills had the ball at the Patriots 1-yard line.  

The Bills were able to kill the clock with Ryan Fitzpatrick taking a couple of knees before Rian Lindell's game-winning field goal from 28 yards. 

"They got a good break," Brady said. "I wish he had went into the end zone, given us a chance to get the ball back, but he didn't. Refs changed the call. They had a chance to run the clock out, kick a field goal. Smart football." 

Brady started off brilliantly, throwing three touchdowns and building a 21-0 lead. He finished 30-of-45 for four touchdowns and 387 yards. His 1,327 yards passing is a...

Belichick: I took the timeout

Patriots coach Bill Belichick said he was the one who decided to call a timeout late in the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss to the Bills. The stoppage ultimately allowed Buffalo to run the clock down and kick a game-winning 28-yard field field goal with three seconds remaining to come away with the 34-31 victory.

Belichick could be seen speaking angrily with the referees in the wake of a sizable gain by Buffalo's Fred Jackson that got the Bills to within New England's 5-yard line with less than two minutes to go. (It appeared there was some confusion as to whether or not Jackson was down short of the goal line.) In the wake of the stoppage, it was difficult to determine just what happened during the exchange, but Belichick said after the game that he was the one who called time out.

"I took it. I took it," Belichick told reporters after the game. "I went down to call a timeout."
