Belichick: Pats meet a goal with AFC East

The Patriots improved to 11-3 with their 41-23 victory over the Broncos on Sunday, in the process winning the AFC East title for the ninth time in 11 seasons. In doing so, coach Bill Belichick said that the Patriots had met a meaningful bar that was set entering the year. 

"That’s one of our goals at the start of the season, to meet the challenge of our division. Our players have done that, 6-2 on the road. They’ve done a good job," Belichick told reporters. "They’ve met a lot of challenges. This was a big one."

As for Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, who was 11-of-22 for 194 yards passing and ran for 93 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries, Belichick praised the second-year player.

"He does a heck of a job. We know he can run. We know he can throw. He hurt us with some play-action. He’s a good quarterback," said Belichick. "He certainly gave us plenty of problems....

Tebow this: Pats clinch AFC East with win

Aaron Hernandez caught nine Tom Brady passes for a career-high 129 yards receiving and a touchdown as the Patriots clinched their third straight AFC East and their ninth division title in 11 years with a 41-23 win over Tim Tebow and the Broncos at Sports Authority Field in Denver. The division title ensures the Patriots of opening the playoffs at home. Defensive end Mark Anderson had his most dominant game in a Patriots uniform, with two sacks, a forced fumble and fumble recovery, helping the Patriots overcome a brutal first quarter on defense and the loss of Andre Carter to a left knee injury.

There was no magical fourth-quarter comeback by Tebow this time as the 8-6 Broncos had their six-game winning streak snapped while the Patriots clinched the division with their sixth straight victory, improving to 11-3 on the season. The Patriots capped off their successful day with a 29-yard sack of Tebow on a 4th-and-17 with just over two minutes remaining....

Pack imperfect: Green Bay loses to Chiefs

The Packers remain in pursuit of a second straight Super Bowl, but regardless of whether they hoist the Lombardi Trophy at the end of the year, they won't be able to claim a perfect season.

Green Bay suffered a stunning 19-14 upset at the hands of the 6-8 Chiefs, who were playing under interim coach Romeo Crennel. The loss dropped the Packers to 13-1, with the defeat being the first suffered by the reigning champions since they lost to the Patriots last December.

The upset preserved the place of the 2007 Patriots as the only team in NFL history to finish the regular season with a 16-0 record. The loss also snapped the Packers winning streak at 19 games, two victories shy of the 2003-04 Patriots record run of 21 consecutive wins in the regular season and playoffs.

Andre Carter carted off with knee injury

In a potentially devastating blow to an already overwhelmed Patriots defense, Andre Carter had to be carted off after injuring his left knee on the final play of the first quarter in Denver. The team confirmed moments later it was a knee injury and that he would not return. 

Carter was engaged in a block by Broncos tight end Daniel Fells when he broke free but stumbled backwards and fell to the ground. He immediately grabbed his left knee and a cart came onto the field to take him to the Patriots locker room. He was accompanied on the cart by team medical director Tom Gill. 

Carter came into the game leading the Patriots in sacks with 10 on the season. The loss of Carter came after the Broncos gashed the Patriots for 172 yards in their first 16 rushing attempts, breaking out to a 16-7 lead. 

The Patriots lone highlight of the first quarter was the first TD catch of the season by Chad Ochocinco, a 33-yarder down the left...

Jackson nets 26 in BC's rout of Bryant

Lonnie Jackson hit seven 3-pointers and scored 26 points to lead Boston College to a 75-55 victory over Bryant on Sunday in Chestnut Hill.

Ryan Anderson contributed 12 points and 12 rebounds for the Eagles (4-7), and Dennis Clifford scored 10 points. Jordan Daniels had nine assists and no turnovers.

Frankie Dobbs led Bryant (1-10) with 15 points.

BC jumped out to an 18-4 lead but led by just two at the half, 34-32. The Eagles scored the first 10 points after the break, with Jackson scoring the final six on a pair of 3-pointers.

Bryant drew within nine on an Alex Francis layup, but Jackson answered with another trey, and the BC lead was never in single digits the rest of the way.

BC next hosts Sacred Heart on Wednesday night.
