Brady named AFC Offensive Player of Week

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady on Wednesday was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for the third time this season. Brady completed 27-of-46 passes for 304 yards and a touchdown and rushed for two 1-yard TDs Saturday, leading the Patriots back from a 17-0 halftime deficit to a 27-24 victory over the Dolphins.

Brady, the AFC Offensive Player of the Month for November, previously won weekly honors for his 517-yard passing performance in a Week 1 win over the Dolphins and a 423-yard effort the following week vs. the Chargers. It's the 20th such honor of his career.

Brady needs 103 yards in Sunday's game against the Bills to join Drew Brees and Dan Marino as the only players in NFL history to pass for 5,000 yards in a season.

Mashup: Experimental treatment for A-Rod?

Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez recently traveled to Germany for experimental therapy on his right knee, according to a New York Post report. Rodriguez received a recommendation from Lakers star Kobe Bryant before getting Orthokine, which involves taking blood from a patient's arm and spinning it in a centrifuge before injecting it into the injured area.

The Yankees checked with the league office before giving their approval for the procedure, which has yet to be proven as a long-term fix. Bryant reportedly had it done on his right knee last summer and again on his left ankle in October.

“These guys like it, they say it works and they are looking for any potential edge,” said Dr. Jonathan Glashow, co-chief of sports medicine at New York's Mount Sinai Hospital. “It’s not an absolute thing. While it appears a lot of guys get relief from it, the jury is still out in terms of it really being critically studied.”

Comeback falls short as C's lose to Heat

The Celtics almost pulled off an amazing comeback against the Heat on Tuesday night in Miami, rallying from a 16-point third-quarter deficit behind a small lineup and an effective zone defense. A Keyon Dooling 3-pointer sliced Miami's lead to three points with just over two minutes remaining, but the Heat answered after a crucial Boston turnover in a 115-107 victory.

Without Paul Pierce (bone bruise, right heel), the Celtics didn't have an effective defensive counter for LeBron James. They also didn't learn their lessons from last year's playoff series as 15 first-half turnovers led to 23 Miami points. Their defense was absolutely shredded as Miami shot 56 percent and put on a clinic in the open court. James scored 26 points and Dwyane Wade added 24 and the Celtics had no answers for either of them.

Coach Doc Rivers hit upon an effective strategy midway through the third quarter when he went zone. That allowed the Celtics to get back in the game,...

Broussard: Players feel KG is 'all bark'
By: DJ Bean

ESPN basketball analyst Chris Broussard joined Steve Buckley and Kirk Minihane Tuesday on The Big Show, discussing the Celtics and the 2011-12 NBA season. 

The C's kicked off the season Sunday with a 106-104 loss to the Knicks. After missing what would have been the game-tying shot and losing the game, Garnett went after Knicks guard Bill Walker and put his hand around Walker's throat. It isn't the first incident in which Garnett's behavior has been called into question, but he was not penalized by the league. 

"Around the league, there's just a feeling that KG is all bark and no bite," Broussard said of Garnett. "Everybody respects his game, no question about that, but in terms of the extracurricular stuff, if you will, picking on guys, guys feel like he picks and chooses who he'll pick on. 

"Bill Walker isn't necessarily the type of guy Garnett has gone after in the past, so I wouldn't be surprised if...
