Ravens coach hints at Patriots cheating

Ravens kicking consultant Randy Brown said Tuesday the Patriots may have deliberately flashed the wrong information on the Gillette Stadium scoreboard late in the Sunday’s AFC championship game, causing confusion on the Baltimore sideline and leading to a missed field goal from Billy Cundiff.

Brown said the information on the scoreboard was incorrect during Baltimore’s final drive, saying it was third down when Baltimore was actually facing fourth down prior to Cundiff’s game-tying field goal attempt. While Ravens players and officials have said the wrong information was on the scoreboard, no one had suggested that it was a nefarious move on the part of the Patriots until Brown hinted there was something else going on. Speaking with 94 WIP Radio in Philadelphia, Brown was asked if the Patriots did it purposefully in hopes of gaining an advantage, Brown replied, “I don’t think you can rule anything out in New England,...

Concussed Horton out vs. Capitals
By: DJ Bean

Bruins forward Nathan Horton was not on the ice for the team's morning skate Tuesday, and according to the Boston Globe will not play against the Capitals due to a mild concussion.

Horton suffered the concussion in Sunday's win over the Flyers, as he was hit in the second period by Tom Sestito and did not return to the game. It is Horton's second concussion since June.

With Horton out, Zach Hamill is expected to be inserted into the lineup, with Rich Peverley likely taking Horton's shifts on the first line.

Report: J.D. Drew 'very likely' to retire

According to a report from Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, former Red Sox outfielder J.D. Drew is 'very likely' to retire. 

Drew played 14 major-league seasons, the last five with the Red Sox. He signed a five-year, $70 million deal with the Sox before the 2007 season, a move that was met with significant criticism from some in the media and many fans. Drew struggled to stay healthy with the Sox, averaging 121 games a season. He played a key role in the 2007 World Series run, hitting a grand slam in Game 6 of the ALCS against Cleveland and batting .333 in the four-game sweep of the Rockies. 

If Drew does in fact retire, he will finish his career with 242 home runs, 795 RBI and a .278 batting average.

Pollard: I hope Giants thrash Patriots

Baltimore defensive back Bernard Pollard left no doubt whom he is rooting for when it comes to Super Bowl XLVI, telling KILT Radio in Houston that he hopes the Giants “just put a thrashing on the Patriots.”

Pollard’s Ravens lost to New England in the AFC championship game 23-20 on Sunday.

“You’ve got to look at what do the Giants have,” said Pollard. “They’ve got a front four that is relentless. They got a secondary that is really, really good. They’ve got a linebacking corps that has been with them. The dinking and the dunking, man? It’s just not going to happen. They are going to have to take shots down the field. I think the Giants watch our film and watch the film of the season. They’ve got to take away their big time players. [Rob]...

Belichick: 'We'll see' on Gronkowski injury

On a conference call with reporters Tuesday afternoon, Patriots coach Bill Belichick said “we’ll see how it goes” when it comes to the health of tight end Rob Gronkowski, who was spotted at Gillette Stadium Monday in a walking boot after suffering an injury to his lower left leg in the AFC championship game.

“We haven’t practiced, obviously, in the last couple of days. We’ll just see how all that is when it’s time to go,” Belichick said when asked if he felt fortunate that the injury wasn’t more serious.

Gronkowski was tackled by Baltimore defensive back Bernard Pollard at the end of the third quarter and landed awkwardly on his left leg. After leaving the field briefly for treatment, he returned for the bulk of the fourth quarter, and said after the game that he felt “good.”

“As you know, it’s hard to gauge injuries,” Belichick said....
