Belichick: UK 'not really a football crowd'

FOXBORO -- Patriots coach Bill Belichick prepared his team Thursday to travel to London for a regular season game against the Rams at Wembley Stadium on Sunday afternoon at 5 p.m. local time (1 p.m. ET). As was the case in 2009, Belichick chose to have his team prepare early in the week in Foxboro before catching a red-eye flight after practice Thursday for England.

"I’d say just the time change," Belichick said, answering a question about the biggest adjustment of travel overseas. "Just getting our body clocks reset for Saturday and obviously Sunday and treat it as a 4 o'clock game, 5 o'clock game, whatever it is, but as a late afternoon game, which we’ve had plenty of experience with that, [so] just getting re-acclimated to that. Whatever the conditions are out there, I doubt they’ll be too much different from what we have here, but whatever it is, it is and we’ll get used to that."

Belichick was then...

BC's Spaziani: 'I know what our situation is'

As the Boston College football team heads into the final month of what has been a disappointing season, coach Frank Spaziani is optimistic but realistic about the situation.

During Wednesday's ACC coaches teleconference, Spaziani was asked if he was concerned that this might be his final few weeks as BC's coach. The Eagles are 1-6 (0-4 ACC) this season and 21-25 in his four years since being promoted from assistant coach.

"Am I worried about that? Well, let me say this: Nobody sheds more blood, sweat and tears on Saturday than I do," Spaziani said. "I know what our situation is, I know what I'm doing, and I know the problems that we have to work through. That's what I'm worried about. I'm worried about getting the victory on Saturday, to be honest with you."

Spaziani acknowledged that he knew going into the season the Eagles would face a challenge competing in the ACC. BC also struggled out of conference, most notably...

Mashup: Jets' Ryan wants apology from Bush

Rex Ryan and the Jets have moved on from the Patriots to their next controversy. Two days after getting defensive in the face of questions about his team's conservative play-calling in Sunday's loss in Foxboro, Ryan said he wants an apology from Dolphins running back Reggie Bush for comments Bush made earlier in the season.

Bush, who left the teams' last meeting early with a bruised left knee, had accused the Jets of trying to hurt him under orders from Ryan. When New York cornerback Darrelle Revis suffered a season-ending left knee injury, Bush said it was an example of "what goes around comes around."

Ryan insisted that his comment about putting "hot sauce" on Bush was misinterpreted.

"I apologized for my comments, and I expect him to do the same," Ryan said Wednesday. "I never was saying we were going to try to injure Reggie Bush. That's not even close.

"He's going to get our attention...

Sandoval's 3 HR lead Giants past Verlander

Pablo Sandoval joined Babe Ruth, Reggie Jackson and Albert Pujols as the only players to launch three homers in a World Series game. The rotund Giants third baseman went deep twice off Tigers ace Justin Verlander and once more in the fifth inning against reliever Al Albuquerque to lead the Giants to an 8-3 victory in Game 1 over Detroit. 

While Sandoval was the dominant force for the Giants, the San Francisco lineup unleashed an impressive assault on Verlander, who lasted just four innings while permitting five runs on six hits and a walk. It was the shortest start by the 2011 AL Cy Young and MVP winner since he lasted two innings in a start on June 22, 2010. 

Sandoval was the catalyst, with a solo homer to center in the bottom of the first to give the Giants a 1-0 lead, a two-run shot to left field in the third and a solo homer to center in the fifth. He also added a single, giving him 13 total bases, second most ever in a World Series...
