Bad flashback: Eli leads Giant comeback

FOXBORO -- Eli Manning connected with Jake Ballard for the game-winning touchdown with 15 seconds left on third-and-goal at the 1 to lift the Giants to a 24-20 victory over the Patriots Sunday at Gillette Stadium. Manning led the Giants 80 yards in eight plays in just 1:21. 

Tom Brady hit Rob Gronkowski with the go-ahead TD from 14 yards out on fourth-and-9 with 1:40 left to give the Patriots the lead. Wes Welker caught nine passes for 136 yards, including two big receptions on a game-tying drive. The Patriots fell to 5-3 on the season and dropped into a three-way tie for first in the AFC East with the Bills and Jets.

The two teams combined for 10 punts in the scoreless first half. The ineptitude was capped off when Gostkowski pulled a 26-yard field goal attempt wide left with three seconds remaining in the second quarter. 

Brady's second interception of the game, a pick by Deon Grant, set up a 22-yard field goal by Lawrence...

Report: Duquette to be named GM of Orioles

According to Jim Bowden of ESPN, the Orioles have reached an agreement with Dan Duquette for the 53-year-old to become Baltimore's next general manager. Bowden reports that a press conference could be held announcing Duquette as Andy McPhail's replacement as early as Monday. 

Duquette hasn't worked in Major League Baseball since the Red Sox fired him prior to the 2002 season. He had served as the Sox' GM from 1994-2002, having held the same position with the Montreal Expos from 1991-94. While with the Red Sox, Duquette guided the organization to an American League East title in 1995, along with Wild Card berths in '98 and '99.

Duquette also interviewed for the Angels' general managers position in October before Los Angeles chose Jerry DiPoto.

NBA sets Wednesday deadline for offer

There is no deal to report after the NBA and the union that represents the players met for eight and a half hours in New York on a new collective bargaining agreement. There is however, a new ultimatum from the NBA: Accept a new proposal by the close of business on Wednesday or their offer goes back to 47 percent of the BRI and a "flex-cap." The post-Wednesday offer as articulated by Stern is a hard-line position.

The union was not happy with the proposal or the new deadline.

"We made the moves that we needed to make to get this deal done on the economics, and we're being given an ultimatum," NBPA president Derek Fisher said. "We will assess where we stand, but right now, we have been given the ultimatum. And our answer is that that's not acceptable to us."

Fisher said the union offered to lower their spilt of the BRI to 51 percent, which has come down once again from their previous offer of 52.5 percent. But...

Seguin hat trick powers B's past Leafs

Tyler Seguin recorded his first career hat trick and Tim Thomas stopped 24 shots as the Bruins rolled to a 7-0 win over the Maple Leafs in Toronto on Saturday night. It was the B's second win over Toronto this season and the first time they have had back-to-back victories this season.

Seguin got the scoring started with a power play goal in the first period and then added a second tally early in the second. Milan Lucic scored a short time later and the rout was on. Seguin scored his third goal of the game later in the second and David Krejci made it 5-0 just 15 seconds later, chasing Toronto goalie Ben Scrivens.

The Bruins added two more goals in the third period as Lucic scored his second before Greg Campbell capped the scoring. Patrice Bergeron had three assists.
