Belichick: 'The credit goes to the players'

Bill Belichick met with the media following the Patriots' 36-7 win over the Bears on Sunday in Chicago. Belichick was understandably pleased with the effort of his team, now an NFL-best 11-2.

 

"The credit goes to the players," Belichick said. "They executed and did the things we needed to do. They've done it before and they've stepped up and did it again today. I'm really proud of the way they performed."

 

Deion Branch set a career high with 151 yards receiving and Tom Brady was again brilliant with 369 yards passing and two TDs. Belichick was impressed with the 59-yard TD connection by the two on the final play of the first half.

 

"Of course the play to Deion at the end of the half, that was two great players there making a great play," said Belichick. "You really have to give Tom and Deion credit there on that one, it was great execution."

Snow contest: Pats maul Bears, in playoffs

From the opening drive of the game, Tom Brady and the Patriots ran the Bears right out of their stadium in a 36-7 beatdown at a snowy Soldier Field, clinching an AFC playoff berth. Linebacker Gary Guyton returned a Johnny Knox fumble 35 yards for a touchdown and intercepted Jay Cutler. The Patriots improved to 10-0 in snow games all-time with Bill Belichick as their coach. 

 

In a game that was played in blizzard conditions, Brady was 13-for-21 for 195 yards and two touchdowns in the first half as the Patriots raced out to a 33-0 lead. The Bears were embarrassed in every way, shape and form. There was no better example of that than the 59-yard TD strike from Brady to Deion Branch down the left sideline on the last play of the half. Branch, who set a new personal regular-season record with 151 yards receiving, raced into the end zone untouched. The Patriots led the Bears in total yards at halftime, 273-33. Brady finished 24-of-40 for...

Raji's clutch trey lifts BC over Maryland

Corey Raji scored the game's final six points, including a go-ahead 3-pointer with 37 seconds remaining, as Boston College battled past Maryland, 79-75, in the ACC opener for both teams Sunday afternoon in College Park, Md.

 

Biko Paris led the Eagles (8-2) with 22 points on 8-of-11 shooting (6-of-9 treys). Reggie Jackson scored 16 points, Raji netted 11 and Joe Trapani had 10.

 

For Maryland (7-4), Jordan Williams led all scorers with 27 points on 12-of-16 shooting.

 

The game was tight throughout, with the largest lead for both teams peaking at five points. Raji tied the game at 75 with 1:27 left when he got free underneath for a layup. Fifty seconds later, Raji took a pass from Jackson and swished a trey from the top left for the winning basket.

 

Following a timeout, Maryland turned over the inbounds pass. But Biko Paris missed the front end of a 1-one-1, giving the Terps another...

Report: Flyers GM expects Shelley penalty
By: DJ Bean

According to a tweet from TSN's Bob McKenzie, the NHL has scheduled a disciplinary hearing for Monday in regard to Flyers forward Jody Shelley's hit on Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid. The play, in which Shelley received a boarding major and game misconduct, occurred in the second period of the Flyers' 2-1 overtime win. The players were racing for an iced puck when Shelley pushed McQuaid, who went head-first into the boards and had the wind knocked out of him.

 

Comcast Sportsnet Philadelphia's Tim Panaccio tweeted Sunday that Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren expects Shelley to be suspended for one game.
